Doris (Hahn) Frey, 94

Doris (nee Hahn) Frey, passed away on Nov. 25, 2022 at the age of 94. She was born in Harrison, Ohio on May 1, 1928 to Edward & Dora (nee Howard) Hahn. After graduation she worked at the shoe factory and at Campbell-Hausfeld. Doris had three goals in life: she wanted to be a secretary, a mother & wife, and a Catholic. She accomplished each one of these. She married Larry Frey on October 6, 1951 in Harrison, Ohio. They had six children: Barbara Jo, Robert, Betty Anne, Bill, Brian and Bev, all of which created many grey hairs and many wrinkles from the laughter and joy they brought to their family. While being a mother she always made time for the church and her faith. She went to work as a Secretary for St. Joseph Catholic Church in St. Leon and retired just short of 50 years. Her children remember helping with bulletins and getting the church ready for weekend Masses. She made do with what she had and Doris was always cooking and baking with whatever she had. She always gardened and that also meant canning throughout the year to provide food for her family. Doris also enjoyed her flower garden as well. She enjoyed playing cards, bingo and family gatherings. Bringing multiple generations together at her home brought joy to her face and created many family memories together. Doris also enjoyed reading books and when her great grandchildren would read to her.

Doris is preceded in death by her beloved husband Larry Frey; parents: Edward & Dora (nee Howard) Hahn; Siblings: Howard (Ruth) Hahn, Hazel Kinnett, Mary Jane (Art) Waltamath, & Margaret Hahn.
