Doris' obituary:

Doris Irene Brink, (Quidley), 85, passed away peacefully on August 4, 2017, in her home surrounded by loved ones. 

Doris was born in Swanquarter, NC, on October 20, 1931, to the late Harry and Allie (Pugh) Quidley. She was preceded in death by sisters Aldean Insley and Thelma Gray Divers, and survived by sisters Helen Godfrey, Elma Markham, Edith Faye Kelsick and Dale Jordan.

Doris was married to Richard, the love of her life, for 67 years following their wedding in Chicago, Illinois. Together they raised six children. Son William and daughter Linda (Kupp) predeceased their mother. Sons Richard and Robert along with daughters Diane (Neal) and Patricia (Johnson) are her surviving children. She is also survived by daughters-in-law Tammy and Grace Brink and son-in-law Michael Kupp as well as twenty- seven nieces and nephews. 

Best known as 'Granny' to all those who knew and loved her, she had twelve grandchildren: Allison, Beri, Bill, Brandi, Corrine, Heather, Julie, Loren, Mellissa, Marshall, Ricky, and Ryan, and ten great- grandchildren: Acetyn, Bria, Chance, Harper, Isla, Kash, Kinleigh, Lexi, Reed and Samantha.

Whether camping on the Outer Banks or fishing on Back Bay, where she earned her state citation for large mouth bass, she loved being outdoors. She grew gardenias, was an avid reader and always looked forward to trying her luck in Atlantic City or even Las Vegas. Her family dinners were always special as she always brought out the best in old cherished family traditional foods like pierogies or milk soup. 

Doris will be remembered most for her kindness to all and her unwavering support and devotion to her loving husband, sons and daughters.

The family will be receiving family and friends on Friday, August 11, 2017, from 3 to 6 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 929 S. Battlefield Blvd, Chesapeake, Va.  Express condolences to the family at www.altmeyerfh.com.
