Obituary for Doris Virginia Ray

Doris Virginia Ray

Doris Ray, age 88, went home to the Lord on August 10, 2018 in Conroe, TX. She was born November 15, 1929, in Cass County, Texas to Clarence and Vannie Jones.

Doris was a lifetime resident of Atlanta, TX. She was married to E.V. Ray for 53 years. While in Atlanta, she worked at the Primary School which she loved because she could interact with the children and their parents. She also liked that she was near her son, Mike while he was in the Atlanta schools. She and E.V. spent a lot of time with Mike, involved in his church youth group and Boy Scouts. When Mike attended Texas A&M, they pulled their travel trailer there, so they could spend time with him, as well as make her special “Trash party mix” for him and all of his friends. Upon retirement, she and E.V. traveled most of the United States by pulling their travel trailer. They loved to travel and meet new people along the way. For the last twenty plus years, they spent their winters in Harlingen with all their winter Texan friends. Doris loved her time there and all of her friends. One of the things she always did was bring her grandchildren trinkets she found while traveling. Her grandchildren were very special to her and she loved spending time with them. She loved photography, not only photographing her grandchildren, but nature in her travels. Doris missed her husband, E.V. so much upon his death and we know now she is so happy to be reunited with him again. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband E.V. Ray; and sister, Geraldine Jones Pyle.

She is survived by her son, Mike Ray and wife Bonnie of The Woodlands; grandchildren, Maverick Ray and wife Mandi of Houston, Texas, Madison Ray of Nashville, Tennessee, Pierce Ray of The Woodlands; nieces, Debbie Pyle Cockerham and husband Ken of Ft. Worth, Texas, and Lynn Pyle Fitzhugh and husband Bullitt of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
