Doris Ellen Standridge, 83 of Florence, Texas, received her Heavenly wings on December 26, 2017. She was born in Lee County, Texas on January, 25, 1934 to Charlie A. and Clemmie C. (Ward) Smith. Doris was full of passion for her Lord and Savior, her family, and her friends. She adored her husband, William Standridge throughout their 59 years of marriage.

Doris always showed the heart of a servant as a lifelong member of First Baptist Church Florence where she served on many committees over the years. She especially loved singing in the choir, WOM and the Prayer Team. She loved playing cards or dominos with anyone that would sit down at the table with her, or just relaxing in the back yard in the evening with her family catching up on the events of the day. She could always be found cheering on her grandkids at all of their sporting events. She loved spending time at Lake Buchannan and did so many times throughout the years. She was also a lifelong member of TOPS Inc.

She is preceded in death by her husband William Ray Standridge, her son Hollis Eugene Standridge, her parents and 3 brothers, Vernon, C A and Hollis Smith.
