Robert would not have made it without the kind hearts and loving souls of her hospice team, Donna, Brittey, Kim, Robbie, and Julie, for being there with Robert when Doris finished her journey. Bless you all, many thanks.
Doris loved working outside, planting flowers, and watching and feeding her birds. She and Robert loved sitting in the swing. Doris loved keeping the grandkids. She was a member of the Radford Worship Center and helped at the Clothing Bank. Doris went back to school and received her degree from American Academy of Professional Coders. She retired from the medical profession. Doris was a dedicated wife, mom, and nana with a smile all the time.
Funeral services will be held at the family home (1108 Stump St., Radford) today, Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at 5 p.m. with Pastor Robbie officiating. Family and friends are welcome. The family will spread Doris’s ashes in the flower bed she loved.
Doris would say “There’s no place like Home”.
The Tinley family is in the care of Mullins Funeral Home and Crematory in Radford.
