Doris Spears

August 20, 1936 - March 20, 2021

Doris Spears passed away peacefully in her home on March 20, 2021.

With a fresh spring wind flowing through her window and bluegrass music playing, Doris departed on her next adventure joining her husband Billy Earl Spears, daughters Sally Dee Spears, Lawna Gay Spears Blevins, Lisa Lynn Spears Tenpenny, and grandson Christopher Allen Latham.
Doris was born Dora Moroz on August 20, 1936 in Andrew Alberta Canada. Her parents were Wasylena Presiznuik Moroz and Harry Moroz. Her father died just a few days before she was born. She embraced her Ukrainian heritage which made her strong. Her daughters were in awe when she would visit her family and start speaking her Ukrainan language. 
Doris met her husband of Billy of 59 years, in Great Falls, Montana while listening to him play his fiddle in a country band. They fell in love, married and raised four daughters in Lawrence, Kansas.
Doris was a vibrant force of nature, a momma bear, who loved her family, and look out if you messed with any of them! Her home was always open to her daughter's friends, family and the musicians in her husband's band. She was a second mom to many, and would feed anyone who was hungry sharing her traditional Ukrainian foods and other tasty dishes.
Doris kept in touch with her Canadian family despite the distance and was close to her sister Irene who lives in the states.

Lisa was the proud mother of her two sons, Remington Houston Spears Tenpenny and Billy Michael Spears Gibler.
Lisa grew up in a home full of love and music. She also grew up with three older sisters whom she loved to tease and annoy with her goofiness. She had a great sense of humor. She pampered her cats and loved all baby animals.
Lisa was a gifted musician. Growing up hearing her father's fiddle, family visits to Oklahoma which were full of family music in her grandparents backyard and home, and many band practices and musical jams in her childhood home, Lisa fell in love with the sounds she heard.  She soaked it all up and learned to play the steel guitar at the age of 15, and soon began creating her own unique style.
