Longtime Lockhart resident Doris Crow, 95, passed Sept. 27 at Parkview Nursing Home. She was born on Dec. 18, 1915, to John Morgan Sanders and Lura Brown Sanders near Brady. She married Nolen Crow, Sr., in 1941 and moved their family to Lockhart in 1949, when the first DPS office in Caldwell County was opened.
Doris came to know just about everyone around Lockhart as a cle
rk at JCPenney. Meanwhile, she followed her passion for painting, becoming an accomplished landscape artist specializing in bluebonnets. Doris was civic-minded, and as a member of the Church of Christ, she helped with Meals on Wheels.
She worked many years as an election judge, and her membership in the seniors group Autumn Years led to her being a founding member of Lockhart Senior Citizen Center. There, she and Thelma Pearson worked tirelessly in fundraising. She and friend Tiny Kieke worked many hours in Silver Threads resale shop.
These ladies and their friends played many games of Canasta and 84.
