Doris I. Rarick, 97, of Millersport went to be with her Lord and Savior July 26, 2019, with her daughters by her side. Doris was born August 23, 1921, in Centerburg, Ohio. A graduate of North High School in Columbus, she went on to manage an Omar Bakery, married the love of her life, Edgar Rarick, became the best mother ever to two daughters, and was a dedicated farm wife and Millersport teacher’s aide. As a longtime member of the Lancaster Church of Christ, she lived her life with a deep abiding faith, which will be carried on by her family. Doris loved her golfing, bowling and playing euchre with her friends, but the time she spent with her family was her ultimate joy. Her words to everyone would be to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Doris is survived by her daughters, Linda (Marvin) Young-Ray and Diana (Joseph) Kemmerer; four grandchildren, Clint (Diana) Young and Candace (Brandon) Hedrick, McKensey Kemmerer and Tyler (Rebecca) Kemmerer; and seven great grandchildren.
