Doris Earlene McLaughlin

July 31, 1937 — October 2, 2023


Doris Earlene McLaughlin passed away peacefully Sunday October 2nd after a graceful seven year battle with lung cancer when all odds were against her. She kept a positive attitude and fought to the end, until SHE was ready.

Doris was born July 31st 1937 in Kansas City MO to Earl and Julia (Merritt) Higginbotham.

She is survived by her children, Don Morris, Kansas City KS, Mistee Baldus, Lexington MO, and Tim McLaughlin, Deepwater MO. Grandchildren Jeff, Kristy, Ernie, Tommy, Aaron, Kelly, Makaela, Reid, and Dakota. Her sister, Almeda Hodges (Darrell), Daughter in laws Susan and Marie and nieces and nephews.

She was proceeded in death by her husband, Tom, sons Michael and Terry and grandson Zach, parents and brothers, Robert and Don.

She was selfless - ALWAYS doing for others. She enjoyed genealogy, writing stories and poems-one was even published. Enjoyed sewing and going to the casino. When she was no longer able to go to the casino, she enjoyed word search puzzles and became an AVID Missouri Lottery ticket scratcher. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
