In Loving Memory of

Doris Ellen Hargis

09/07/1927 - 04/07/2016

Doris Ellen Hargis, 88, of Gainesville, FL went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ April 7, 2016 at UF Shands. She was born September 7, 1927 in Durham, NC to Norwood Tew and Louise Lewis Tew.
Mrs. Hargis was a medical secretary for the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation in Miami for 30 years. After she and her husband came to Gainesville in 1997, she continued working as a medical secretary at Alachua General Hospital in their pathology department. She loved to read and spend time with her family. Her loving way and sweet personality made an impression on everyone she met. She had a very strong faith and one of her favorite bible verses was 1st Cor. 1-4 (read it and believe it).
She is survived and will be greatly missed by her husband of 60 years, Wesley G. Hargis, Jr., son, Wesley Kemp Hargis both of Gainesville, two sisters, Nita Tew Hyde of Newberry and Jean Tew Blackstone, Bogart, GA.
A family celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by Forest Meadows Funeral Home (352) 378-2528.

    Dub and Kemp, I just heard of Dottie’s passing. She was like a mom to me (one month older than my mom). She was the most wonderful, understanding, professional, polite, generous and beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure to know. I always called her my “Nadia Comaneci” (Russian Olympic gymnast), because she was so flexible and always helped cover me in the pathology office when I was raising my kids. I am so sad to hear of her passing, but know God has embraced her in his arms, like she embraced us in hers.

    God bless you and your entire family, and thank you for sharing your precious Dottie with me.

      Thank you so very much, Denise. My Mother was an absolute Angel and she was my best friend all my life. I miss her so much but know she suffers no more in Heaven. She spoke of you and the people she worked with there, she respected and loved all of you. She left an everlasting impression on everyone she met. Again thank you and God bless.
