Doris Lee Adcock Lessly, aged 88, passed away on Wednesday, 20 February 2013, at her home.

A 2:00 PM service will be held at Collins-McKee Funeral Home in Martinsville, Virginia, on Sunday, 24 February 2013.

Doris was born 19 September 1924 in Ogden, Arkansas, to Joseph Franklin “Frank” Adcock and Georgia Lee Reed Adcock. She met the love of her life, Roy Allen Lessly, in Shreveport, Louisiana, while he was stationed at Barksdale Field during WWII. They married on 18 December 1945 and were married for sixty-six years.

Doris was a member of Fieldale United Methodist Church in Fieldale, Virginia.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by the following: her beloved husband of 66 years, Roy Allen Lessly; a sister, Norma Adcock Capra; two brothers: Gene Adcock and Joseph Franklin Adcock, Jr.; a grandson, Donald Allen Shackett; a son-in-law, 1SG Donald Shackett; and a great-granddaughter, Emma Nicole Dunwoody.

Doris is survived by her daughter, Phyllis Jean Lessly Fleming and her husband, Stanford J. Fleming, of the home; her granddaughter, Brenda Jean Shackett Dunwoody and her husband, Major James Robert Dunwoody, currently stationed in Korea; her grandson, 1SG Kelly Lee Shackett, currently deployed in Afghanistan, and his wife Lesley Cassell Shackett of Martinsville, Virginia; great-grandchildren: 2LT Robert Allen Dunwoody, Amber Lee Shackett, Christopher Connor Dunwoody, and Hannah Renee Shackett, all of Martinsville, Virginia; a brother, David Adcock and his wife Gwen of Weatherford, Texas; and nieces and nephews.

Doris loved her family, reading, roses, laughter, cooking for her family, “Amazing Grace,” and travel. She will always be remembered as a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. The 23 Psalm sums up Doris’s profound beliefs and influence on her family and friends: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The family will receive friends from 1:00-2:00 PM, Sunday, 24 February 2013, at Collins-McKee Funeral Home and at other times at her daughter’s home at 705 Ferndale Drive, Collinsville, Virginia.
