Racine – Doris J. Pofahl, 90, passed away at the Villa at Lincoln Park on November 12, 2017. Doris was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 24, 1927, the daughter of the late Walter and Ethel (nee: Root) Nordstrom. On October 25, 1944 she was united in marriage to Richard F. Pofahl in the Kenosha First Congregational Church. He preceded her in death on April 20, 2010.
Doris was filled with compassion and interest in others. She made friends easily and maintained contact with many of them through the years. Doris enjoyed family camping and bowling in her younger years, and really enjoyed playing Bingo up to the very end. She also liked to travel, but most of all she enjoyed being with her family.
Doris leaves to cherish her memory, her children: Gary (Karen) Pofahl of Milwaukee, Gene (Cindy) Pofahl of Grand Junction, Colorado, Gregg (Susan) Pofahl of Racine, Glen (Christine) Pofahl of Janesville, Laurie (Roger) Rathburn of Lebanon, Tennessee, and Gerald (Sharon) Pofahl Racine; 15 grandchildren, and a host of great and great-great-grandchildren; sister-in-law Ruth Geer of Waupaca; plus nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
A family graveside memorial will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to thank the residents and staff at
The Villa at Lincoln Park for her years of friendship and personal care.
“Somewhere up above a voice calls out… BINGO!!”
