Doris Jean Clifford Hedgpeth was born on September 30, 1935, in Washington, DC. She departed this life and entered into eternal rest and peace on Sunday, October 25, 2015, at Litchford Falls Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Doris was filled with the Holy Spirit in 1975, and In her experience with God and the Holy Spirit, so many wonderful things happened to her. God gave her assurance of His presence, His love, His faithfulness, His caring, and His providing. She was over-joyed with Jesus, and each day new revelations flourished. She learned so much from studying the Old and New Testaments. She was one of God’s faithful servants and talked about Him to anyone who would listen. God was her life, and she wanted Him to know that he could depend on her.
Doris met Robert Melvin Hedgpeth and they were united in Holy Matrimony on January 8, 1956. God blessed this union with two daughters and one son. She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and enjoyed assisting her husband in the family catering business, working in her garden, and planning the family cook-outs and gatherings.
Those remaining to forever treasure the legacy of her life and love are her children, Karen Reams (Ricky) of Louisburg, NC, Lisa Haire (Garette) of Mills River, NC, and Robert Hedgpeth of Atlanta, GA; her grandchildren, Lauren Nalin Hedgpeth, Leah Mackenzie Haire, Marshall Corban Haire, and Garrison Gabriel Haire; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
Doris’ Home Going was unexpected to those of us who knew and loved her, but not to Jesus. She is now with Him, the love of her life.
