Doris Brents

Doris Brents, age 80, went peacefully to be with the Lord on Thursday, February 13, 2014. Doris was born November 7, 1933 in Keensberg, Colorado. She met and married the late Louie H Brents and eventually settled in La Marque, Texas with their six children :  Darla, Shawn, Glenda, Lou, Jr. (Hody),  Herman, and Angelia (Annie). She was first and foremost a loving mother and grandmother to 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Her family was always at the center of her life and heart. She demonstrated daily her love for the Lord, taught her children to respect others, that hard work is an admirable thing and what unconditional love is. Through example she provided friends and family a compass by which to live.

Doris nurtured and loved the children of the community through her daycare Teach-A-Tot Nursery, the daycare at College of the Mainland and was very involved with the Child Development programs in the community. She caringly gave of herself to serve others around her.

She enjoyed many hobbies including sewing, quilting, crocheting, and gardening. She remained very active volunteering at the Mainland Center Hospital and enjoyed working in her Grandson’s restaurant the Lazy Lizard Cantina.

Doris loved to be a part of everyday activities and lived her life to the fullest.  The Lord God has called her name and now she prepares the way for those she leaves behind. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Doris Brents is resting peacefully in God’s kingdom.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, February 20, 2014 to 2:00pm at Carnes Funeral Home in Texas City, Texas.
