Doris Jean Green, 73, of Gonzales, passed away Sunday, March 17. She was born June 28, 1945 in Gonzales, the daughter of Adolph and Alice Caraway Priesmeyer.
She married Bobby Green in Karnes County. She enjoyed gardening and tending her many plants; being outdoors, sitting on her porch. In her younger years she helped tend cattle and build fences, doing whatever was needed to help her husband and family. She saw to it that her family went on yearly trips and many day trips to the beach. She was an avid garage sale shopper and would always buy something if not for her for one of her children. She was an excellent cook, making pies, cookies and many other desserts during the holidays and family gatherings. She was well known for her fried chicken even making it at the beach.
