Life Story for Doris Gilley
It is with great sadness that the family of Doris Gilley, known to friends as Deb, announces her sudden passing on August 11, 2017 at the Baptist Health Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.
Doris was raised in Madison, Indiana, and wanted to become a nurse from the earliest time she could remember. After high school she began training and first worked as a nurse in 1957. She was married in 1958 and after the births of her son and daughter, she acquired a Baccalaureate in Nursing. She loved working with children, and worked in the pediatric unit for The University of Kentucky hospital. She later worked as a school nurse in Lexington Kentucky, and as the staff nurse for the Buckhorn Children's Center in Kentucky.
Doris lived her life loving, caring, and welcoming all, spending her life serving God and her family.
She will be sadly missed by her son, Sean; daughter, Maria; five grandchildren; one great-grandchild, two brothers and three sisters.
