Doris’ Ministry of Flowers

Ethel “Doris” Connor, 68, died at home Thursday, June 22, 2023. The last few days of her life were mostly spent sleeping and listening to friends who came to say goodbye. She died a few minutes after some of her deepest friends spoke to her about her beloved children, grandchildren, and her part of the Quaker community that cared so much for her. She made us better people.

At the recent SAYMA Meeting for Remembrance, this message was shared, and a Memphis Friend recalled Doris’ “ministry of flowers” to the meeting. Several photos of Doris and the flowers she grew at the meetinghouse were shared.

Note: A candlelight worship in memory of Doris is scheduled for July 19 at 7 pm at the meetinghouse.
