Doris Marie Roach
Doris Marie Roach, 79, of Newport, Ore., died of natural causes on Jan. 11, 2013 at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport.

She was born July 1, 1933 to Oda Lee Wheeling and Marie (Medres) Wheeling in Poplar Bluff, Mo. She resided in Poplar Bluff, attending school there, until the family moved to Oregon and settled in Toledo in 1963. She moved to Newport in 1999. In 2012 she moved to Oceanview Senior Living where she remained until her death.

She married Paul Edwin Roach on March 21, 1948 in Poplar Bluff and had two children.

She worked in the food and service industry, mainly as a waitress both in Missouri and Oregon.

She attended the First Baptist Church in Newport. She volunteered for many years at Newport Senior Activity Center and Food Share. She loved being able to help others.

She enjoyed Wii bowling, playing bingo, pinochle and other card games. But caring for her family was always first priority. She will be missed by those who loved her.

She was preceded in death by her husband Paul Roach; her son Douglas Roach; parents, Oda Lee and Marie Wheeling; and sisters, Norma Ellis, Ruby Henson and Martha Wheeling.

She is survived by her daughter Paula (Stu) Davis of Newport; sisters, Marge (Bob) McDaniel of Lockport, N.Y., Cindy (Kevin) Cray of Buffalo, N.Y., Glenda (Louis) Jackson of Yuma, Ariz. and Debbie Settlemier of Bend; brothers, Lee (Ulrike) Wheeling of Corvallis, Bob Wheeling of Sweet Home, Ted (Patty) Wheeling of Clatskanie and Bill Wheeling of Toledo; granddaughter Angie Williams of Salem; grandsons, Shannon Roach of Newport and Guy (Erica) Leech of Newport; and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life for family and friends will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Newport Food Share.

Crown Burial is handling arrangements.
