Doris Reeder Connolly, 100, went to be with her Lord on February 28, 2018. She was born January 14th, 1918, in Cross Plains, Texas. Doris spent her childhood years in West Texas and later moved to Sinton, where she graduated from high school. After graduation, she moved to Corpus Christi where she met and married John Vincent Connolly in 1942. She lived in Houston for 43 years, the last 22 years with her daughter Doris Kresse.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents, sister Billie Ruth Warnica, brother Lanham Reeder, and son John Vincent Connolly, Jr. She is survived by her children, son Thomas Edward Connolly and wife Judy, daughter Molly Govella, and daughter Doris Kresse and husband Donald; grandchildren John Mark Connolly and wife Cindy, Amy Connolly, Austin Govella and wife Melissa, Susan Burris and husband Jason, Risa Vasquez and husband Matt, Maxwell Govella, Andrew Kresse, and Richard Kresse and wife Laura; and great-grandchildren Jacob, Samuel, and Andrew Connolly; Aiden, Naomi, and Alexander Govella; Grace and Sydney Burris; and Mary and Matthew Vasquez, as well as nephews Martin Warnica and William Reeder.

Doris loved listening to music, reading, spending time with family, and reminding us to be grateful for what we have.
