Doris was born on December 20, 1924, in Temple, Texas to Maurice and Ina Parrott. She married Lloyd Warren on September 6, 1943 and spent World War II in San Diego, CA working and waiting for his return from the war. She, along with her husband, were the founders of Jack 'N' Jill Donuts, a Waco tradition.

Doris was a much loved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to all who knew her. In her last years, the response of caregivers was, "She's so sweet. I would love to take her home with me." Doris spent most of her life in Waco, moving to Fort Worth to be with family in her final years. In Waco, she was very active in the community through PTA and the Texas Angus Association, and was a member of Western Heights Baptist Church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 66 years, Lloyd Warren, and her brother Charles Parrott.

She is survived by two sons, Randy Warren and wife, Carol, of Fort Worth and Rick Warren and wife, Denny, of Fort Worth; three grandchildren, Dr. Scott Warren and wife, Ashley of Waco, Brad Warren and wife, Veronika of Palm Beach Gardens, FL, and Kayla Keese and husband, Kyle, of Denton; and six great-grandchildren.

My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mrs. Warren. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
