Doris Grammer, 101, of Lubbock, and formerly of New Mexico, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday night, April 1, 2024.   Doris was born on June 6, 1922, in Mineola, Wood County, Texas, to the late Louis Miller and Nelle (Burleson) Miller.

She grew up in the East Texas town of Mineola, attending Mineola schools and graduating with the senior class of 1939.

Doris met the love of her life, Marcus Grammer.    They hopped a train in Mineola and went to Grand Saline, where they were united in marriage on October 23, 1942.   Mr. Grammer preceded her in death on May 8, 2004, and he was laid to rest in the Santa Fe National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

She worked for Mountain Bell Telephone Company, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for 38 years, before retiring in 1988 as a switchboard trainer.  She loved to go bird watching, shopping, baking, travel and was faithful to the Lord by reading her bible every day.  She was a member of the Montgomery Boulevard Church of Christ in Albuquerque, New Mexico
