Doris Reed Warner, affectionately known as “Dee” was reunited in Heaven with her parents, Leon Atwood Reed and Essie Kelley Reed, along with her brothers, Arlon and Leonard and her sister, Lalla Reed Trice on May 6, 2020 in Marshall, Harrison County, Texas, USA. Dee was born in Goldonna, Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, USA on June 23, 1932 and baptized at Goldonna Baptist Church. Dee’s life served as witness to her Christian faith with stewardship through gospel music and sharing scripture. A graduate of Northwestern State University in Louisiana with a Bachelor’s Degree, Dee’s love for music motivated her to become an expert pianist and organist, while also singing in choirs for her church and school. Dee was beautiful inside and out. She was most proud of her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchild. She was a faithful and dedicated wife while being admired by all who met her. Dee was immaculate in her appearance, extremely intelligent and caring for everyone she met during her life on earth. Most important in Dee’s life was God and Jesus Christ. Dee’s beauty was nothing short of stunning. She was recognized as a local beauty pageant winner as a young lady. Many compared her appearance to Marilyn Monroe, Barbara Eden and other well-known actresses. She graced the cover of periodicals as well as appearing on the marquee at New York Times Square for Dove Soap. Dee particularly loved the music group The Oak Ridge Boys, being kin to one of their members, William Lee Golden. Both Dee and William Lee were born in Goldonna, Louisiana which was named after William Lee’s great-grandfather, Dr. William Golden. Dee is survived by her husband, Jon F. Warner; daughters, Kellie Bossier (Sam) and Stephanie McBurney (Blaine); grandchildren, Chelsea Bossier, Stevie Bossier Fuselier (Baron), Lindsay Bossier, Dylan Bossier; great-grandchild, River Fuselier; many cousins, nieces, and nephews. Due to the current public health crisis, a Celebration of Life Service for Dee will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be offered at www.meadowbrookfh.com
