Obituary for Doris Lea Freeman
Lifelong Curry County resident Doris L. Freeman, 92, of Brookings, passed away in Crescent City, California on October 27, 2016
Doris was born November 19, 1923 in Gold Beach, Oregon to Pioneer Citizen’s David (Bullhide) and Ruby (Miller) Moore. She married Theadore L. “Ted” Freeman on July 11, 1943. They lived in Brookings and began a family. Doris was pretty much a stay at home mom. When she did work outside the home it was for the Freeman Chetco Store, Latimer’s Florist, and Bookkeeper for Freeman Livestock and Trucking, Del Cur Supply and Easter Lily Research. In 1976 Ted & Doris began Freeman Rock Enterprises.
Doris was a member of D.A.R., Rebekah’s, and founding member of the Chetco Wranglers, which eventually built rodeo grounds where the existing BPOE is. She was instrumental in the construction of the Boy Scout Hall. Doris was very active in attending her grandchildren’s various sporting events. She was proud of the fact that there had been a Freeman descendent in the Brooking Harbor School system for the last 86 years. For 20 years Doris sold tickets for sporting events at the Brookings Harbor School. Doris enjoyed gambling, bowling, softball, and card games of any kind. Doris & Ted were Pioneer Citizen for the 63rd Azalea Parade.
Survivors include her children, Theodore “Ted” Freeman Jr., wife Peggy of Brookings, Connie Love of Springfield, Oregon, Cheryl Howell, husband Tom, David Freeman, wife Bobbi of Brookings, and Tracy Carson, husband Troy of Klamath Falls, Oregon. Eleven grandchildren, nine great grandchildren which some of them called her Super Grandma! She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, and eight siblings.
Memorial Contributions may be made to Brookings Harbor Scholarship Foundation.

At her request there will be no services.
