January 8, 1931 ~ November 29, 2013
Doris Evelyn Fanning, loving wife of 62 years, caring mother and friend. Born 1931 in Alfalfa, Oklahoma, Doris was the fifth of Mae and Loren Fullerton's six children. In 1952, Doris graduated from the Oklahoma Women's College with a B.S. in Home Economics. On September 4, 1953 she married Carl Fanning, and they travelled with their family from farm to river to mountains to desert to prairie. She warmed family and friends with her delight and appreciation for the small things and showed deep strength in the challenging ones. Doris's joyful spirit endures for her husband, Carl, her son and daughter-in-law Mark & JoAnna Fanning and their daughter and two sons and families, daughter and son-in-law Connie & Randy Gackstetter, son and daughter-in law Barry and Suzanne Fanning and their five children, and for all of the good friends and relatives across the country.
Please offer any monetary remembrances to her church home of 34 years, Temple Baptist Church, Fargo North Dakota.
