She is survived by her beloved sons: Rickey (Jean) Leatherwood of Kansas City, Missouri, Robert Leatherwood of Idabel, Oklahoma, and Roger (Shannon) Leatherwood of Graham,Washington.
As a grandmother, Doris continued to radiate her love and faith, influencing the lives of her grandchildren: Misty (Martin) Newsome, Shane Martin, Ben Martin, Austin Leatherwood, and Dayton Leatherwood. She is further survived by an expanding legacy of ten great-grandchildren. Her love and wisdom will resonate through the generations she touched.

Doris Florene Leatherwood will forever be remembered for her unwavering faith, kind heart, and the profound impact she had on everyone fortunate enough to know her. Her legacy of love and faith will continue to shine brightly through the lives she touched and the example she set. May she rest in eternal peace.
