Doris Casper, born March 7, 1927 in St. Paul, MN to August and Frances - passed away unexpectedly on January 5, 2012.
Doris grew up in St. Paul, MN and was an almost 50-year resident of Trade Lake, WI.
Doris belonged to the girls’ card group and loved to play. She taught her grandchildren to play so she would always have a buddy to play with.
She also loved watching the tip-ups on the lake during the winter and enjoyed watching all the boaters in the summer. She just loved watching the lake while sitting on her porch on Sundays. She enjoyed playing bingo in Cushing or attending the meat raffle. Doris also loved to feed her family and friends, always asking if she could make you something. If there ever was a person who loved doing the dishes, it was her. Traveling was of great enjoyment to her and she did alot of it.
Her family was first and foremost and she will be missed more than words can say!!
