Doris J. Sheldon, 89, passed away on December 21, 2021 at her home in Mesa, Arizona. She was young at heart and cared deeply for her family. Doris retired at the young age of 77 from Desert Oncology and after retirement kept busy volunteering at the Chandler Senior Center.
As a child her family moved to Mesa from Cameron, Oklahoma when she was about two years old. Her parents were James T. Posey and Birtha F. Posey (Wilcox) who preceded her in death along with 4 sisters and 3 brothers.
Sherman R. Sheldon was the love of her life and they were married 56 years until his death in 2006. They adopted two children Kurtis and Laura whom they raised as their own. It was not uncommon to find them visiting relatives during the summer to camp, water ski, or just have quality time together.
She is survived by her daughter Laura Sheldon and four grandchildren Brandon Sheldon; Candace Popa and her husband Marian; Kendra Tucker and her husband David; and Michael Sheldon-Manning. She also has 9 great-grandchildren Treyton, Garrett, Layla, Loralie, Ginevra, Norah, Isaiah, Felicity, and Abigail.
There will be a visitation on Tuesday, December 28th at Bunker Chapel from 10:30 to 12:30 followed by a graveside service at the Mesa Cemetery at 1 pm.
