Obituary for Dorris Evelyn McDermott (Sammons)

Dorris Evelyn McDermott (Sammons)
Dorris E Sammons McDermott, age 83, moved to heaven on October 8, 2017 at home in Lake Charles, LA. She was born in Tularosa, New Mexico and was the younger of two daughters. Dorris modeled in El Paso, TX and had an offer to sing opera and study music in Europe which she declined because the offer didn’t accommodate family members. She enjoyed many years of singing in choir at church. Dorris will be remembered as being happily married to her loving husband, Jim, active in their church, a woman who loved God and loved her children and grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by her husband, Jim McDermott; by her children, W Ray Bell from Amarillo, TX, Lauri Bell Sanders from Fort Worth, TX and Rhonda Bell Simms from College Station, TX, eleven grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren; and by his children, Karen Bradshaw from New York, Michael McDermott from Texas and Laura MacGuire from New Hampshire, three grandchildren and one great grandchild.

The family will receive friends in the chapel of Lakeside Funeral Home from 5:30 P.M. until time of service. Funeral services will be held at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at Lakeside Funeral Home in Lake Charles, LA. She will be buried at Resthaven Memorial Park in Corsicana, TX on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 2 P.M.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Mrs. Dorris’ memory to One Touch Awakening P.O. Box 16838 Lake Charles, LA 70616.
