Doris Earline Shipman, 52, passed unexpectedly on Thursday 9/29/2022.
She peacefully entered into her heavenly mansion while surrounded by family and friends.

She was a lifelong resident of Henderson County and spent her life in the Zirconia community.
Doris was a loving, simple person, who enjoyed going to church and spending valuable time with her mother. She was a Dallas Cowboys fan and always enjoyed letting her brothers know when the Cowboys won a game. She enjoyed going out to eat and seeing her many friends and sharing stories and a laugh. Doris was a caring lady who always asked about others and she always brought a smile to the faces of her friends. She did volunteer work during her younger years, and also enjoyed playing the piano at her church.

She was preceded in death by her father, William G. Shipman, and a very special nephew Josh Shipman, along with many aunts and uncles.

She is survived by her mother Mabel B Shipman, brother Bill Shipman Jr and wife Becky of Zirconia, brother Glen Shipman and wife Lynn of Zirconia, and two nephews Kirby Shipman of Travelers Rest SC and Casey Shipman of Zirconia, and an aunt Ann Hill of Hendersonville NC.

A celebration of life service will be held in Doris’ honor on Sunday, October 2nd at 2:00 pm at Bob’s Creek Baptist Church. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service, beginning at 1:00 pm. Burial will be in the Ward cemetery, alongside family members.

The service will be performed by the Rev. Bobby Capps and the Rev. Blair Stewart Pallbearers will be Homer Maybin, Jonathan Ward, Steve King, Robin Hill, Kirby Shipman, and Casey Shipman.

The family would like to thank the Green River Fire and Rescue first responders for their rapid response, care, and volunteer service.

I sure am going to miss Doris! She was such a caring sweet person. I have watched her declining health over the past few months. Doris is not suffering anymore! I will miss her calls and our visits and special times. Jimmy will miss checking the radar and giving her weather reports. Doris was so special. I know the days ahead will be hard for the family. Just know I am always just around the corner and love you all so very much. Brenda & Jimmy

I’m so sorry for your loss. Doris was a good person who could always surprise me with her sense of humor. She was a great library volunteer and I considered her a good friend. She loved her family and God. I hope she is rejoicing now. Love to you Mabel. Carol Case
