Doris (Hopkins) Lindsey

April 18, 1935 — January 13, 2021

This service has been changed to a Graveside only at 10:20 a.m., Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Fairview Cemetery, Randlett, OK under the direction of Hart-Wyatt Funeral Home in Walters, OK.

Doris Marie (Hopkins) Lindsey was born to Raymond Bruce and Laura Mae (Robbins) Hopkins on April 18, 1935 in Devol, OK, and departed this life in Wichita Falls, TX on January 13, 2021 at the age of 85 years, 8 months and 26 days.

Doris grew up in Devol, OK, on the family farm with her dear younger brother, Bobby, roaming the land, swimming in the farm tanks, singing to the cows, and finding hidden places to stow away with a good book. She graduated Randlett High School followed by her freshman year at Cameron University. Doris married John Joel “Joe” Lindsey on February 27, 1954. Upon her husband’s graduation from The University of Oklahoma, they moved to Wyoming where they lived in Kaycee, Jackson Hole, and Rawlins while they continued to grow their family for the next 12 years. They also lived in Liberal, KS; Corsicana, TX; Moore, OK, and Sweeny, TX. Joe and Doris returned to Oklahoma for their retirement years living near Tenkiller Lake in Park Hill, OK. Doris returned to her roots in 2018 living in Wichita Falls, TX near her family farm in Devol, OK.

This sweet woman that we are blessed to call Mom lived out her vocation of wife and mother to the fullest. She was the most well-read person and loved to share good books and poetry with everyone. Doris was unashamedly Christian and unshakeable in her faith walk. She lived what she believed. Our beloved mom loved the unlovable, walked in forgiveness, and counted it all joy in all circumstances living for our Lord daily. She was the most talented woman we have ever known; yet, the most humble woman of God. Our home was always filled with songs, laughter, and delicious food prepared with love. Hospitality was her middle name. Her vivacious and welcoming personality allowed her to befriend and minister to family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. We are eternally grateful for the loving witness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior that she shared with each of us and all she met til her last days. She prayed, she loved, she forgave, and she clung to the hope our risen Savior gives us. To quote an old gospel tune: We’ve “never been more brokenhearted. You’ve never been more alive!”

She was preceded in death by her parents, Bruce and Laura Mae Hopkins; her husband, Joe Lindsey; and a brother, Bobby Hopkins.

Survivors include five children: Debra Lindsey, Bruce Lindsey, Laurie Lindsey, Connie Romero and John, Lisa Pilch; ten grandchildren: Maegen Stabb and David, Beau Pilch, Brett Pilch and Taliah, Audrey Pilch, Cale Romero, Mitchell Romero, Malachi Engle Lindsey, Gabryelle Lindsey, Michaela Lindsey, and Ian Lindsey; two great grandchildren: Spencer Romero and Ellsie Pilch.
