Doris E. Ray

Doris E. Ray, 88, of Cedartown, Georgia, passed away on December 5, 2019.  Mrs. Ray was born in Berryton, Georgia on August 15, 1931 to the late Clifford and late Trzevent McGraw.

Doris was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.  She loved traveling with her husband James.  They traveled all over the world together.  Mrs. Ray found great peace in listening to classical music and reading.  Her favorite books to read were novels and cookbooks.  Of course, with her zeal to read cookbooks she always had great recipes.  She loved to cook for her family and enjoyed to time spent with them.  Doris had a love for shoes and anyone that knew her, knew that she was serious about them.  In fact, that trait was passed down to other generations, as well.  Mrs. Ray was a proud member of The Cedartown Order of the Eastern Star #213.  Doris will be sorely missed by all, especially her little Chihuahua, Fiona.

Mrs. Ray was preceded in death by her loving Husband, James Ray; parents, Clifford and Trzevent McGraw; sisters, Jackie Green and Patsy Morrison.
