Doris was born on January 11, 1925, in Paragould, Arkansas to Clarence and Maude Burton. In 1943, she graduated valedictorian from Oak Grove High School in Paragould, Arkansas. On August 21, 1943, she married the love of her life, Harvey Rogers. The were married for 78 years.
Doris and Harvey moved to Indiana in 1952 and were faithful members of Prairie Baptist Church in Noblesville for 69 years, where Doris served as a Sunday School teacher for many years and was involved with many ministries including the mission circle and church choir. She loved her family, her church and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
She is survived by a daughter, Jane Shively of Noblesville; son-in-law, Robert Blevins of Huntsville, Indiana; seven grandchildren; Cari (Robert) Carter, Paul Rogers, Jennifer Moyes, Daniel (Starla) Shively, Ben (Leah) Rogers, Michael (Amanda) Rogers, and Matthew (Bobbi) Shively, 13 great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Burton; sisters, Sherrill Cooper, Mildred Copeland and Mary Carolyn Jernigan.
Doris loved to garden. She loved all the work involved, taking great pleasure in planting, cultivating, harvesting, and even pulling weeds. She worked tirelessly to preserve the food she grew and hated for anything to go to waste. She loved watching the birds, especially her hummingbirds. She loved making quilts, and spent her winters with her quilting frame, creating masterpieces one tiny stitch at a time.
She was a great planner and organizer. She wrote and produced many skits for church programs and helped to organize many church activities. She loved planning and preparing meals for family gatherings and did not want any help preparing food for those huge meals.
Doris was a willing worker, and a caring friend to everyone she met. Her greatest desire was that others and especially her family would know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. She is greatly loved and will be greatly missed.
