Beloved wife of the late James Wesley Mitchell and the late Myles James Byrnes. Loving mother of Cheryl Byrnes, Terrence Byrnes and Shawn Byrnes (Tracey).

Doris was very proud of her family, today we look for heroes and mom was a legend in the Byrnes Legacy. Mom had a saying ” the wind blows from every direction, what is so important today will mean nothing tomorrow so don’t stress the small things.” Love you thru eternity.
