Doris Carrie Abbe

Doris Carrie Abbe quietly passed away Oct. 21, 2012, in Santa Rosa Beach. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in the spring of 1914, Doris chose to live her life with love. She gave away kindness to everyone she met, seeing only the good in people.

She lived most of her 98 years in Florida, happy and healthy and full of life. Devoted wife to Edward William Abbe; mother of Dennis Abbe, Judith Abbe Tansy, Sharon Abbe Leboffe, Robert Abbe and Laurel Abbe; daughter of Charles and Carrie Schaeffer; sister to Marilyn Treble; dear aunt and great-great-grandmother, she is now at peace in heaven joining those who crossed before her. We will miss her deeply and carry her warmth with us always.

Doris’ family would like to thank all the “angels” who helped her these last years and moments here in Walton County. There were so many who touched her life and helped her in so many ways. We are most grateful to you all.
A family service was to be held at Gulf Cemetery followed by a celebration of her life with family and friends at the home of Laurel Abbe and Bruce Johnson in Blue Mountain Beach.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation be made to Caring and Sharing of South Walton.
