Doris J. Buford, Age: 85
Jun 27, 1933 -- Nov 21, 2018

I received my final reward surrounded by my loving family on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at NorthCare Hospice. My visitation will be from 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, November 28 at the Porter Funeral Home, 1835 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, KS with my Funeral Service starting at 11 a.m. My burial will be in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers my family suggests memorial contributions to St. Paul's Episcopal Church. I was born June 27, 1933, in Blue Rapids, KS the daughter of Orin and Anna Mae (Tingler) Short. My working career was at Sealright for 42 years, retiring as the manager of its Credit Union in 1997. I was an active member at St. Paul's Episcopal Church and served on the Vestry as its Treasurer, the Episcopal Church Women, the Daughters of the King, the Altar Guild and worked in the Church's Food Pantry. I was preceded in death by my parents, my son, Mark C. Buford in 2007 and a nephew Christopher Short in 2016. I am survived by my husband of 66 years, Roger H. Buford, my sister, Barbara Dungan, my nieces and nephew, Donna Forge, Marilyn Carroll, Pattie Rodriguez and George Buford (Cheryl) and numerous great nieces and nephews.

Roger, we were saddened when we saw Doris's name in the paper this morning; but it also brought back good memories, especially of Alaska! Sorry we will not be able to attend Wednesday. Rest assured of prayers. Peace

Roger and Barbara, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. It is sad how the family passes away and leaves us, but we always have our memories of the good times we spent together. I believe they look out for us from above so even though they are not physically with us they remain by our sides as we go thru life until we join them. Please let me know if you need anything. Take care

Dearest Roger, I am so sorry that you lost the love of your life. I am in a rehabilitation center because I fell 14 feet. Otherwise, I would have been there for you. I have great memories of our dinners at your home and sharing laughter and love during the holiday season. I have not been the same since losing Chris. As soon as I can drive and get out on my own, I will call and visit. Maybe we can get Barbara to join us for dinner. I love you dearly and have asked Jesus to wrap his loving arms around you and keep you safe. Hugs love you Jan McClung Short
