Doris (Shoemaker) Pope

September 30, 1930 ~ June 12, 2022 (age 91)


Doris Ellen Shoemaker Pope, 91, of Salisbury, passed away, Sunday, June 12, 2022 at Compass Health Care in Spencer, NC.

Mrs. Pope was born in Iredell County, September 30, 1930, the daughter of the late, Bobby Boyd Shoemaker and Connie Belle Barker Shoemaker.  She was a graduate of Scotts High School, class of 1949, and on February 8, 1958 she married Clyde R. Pope.  Together they shared more than 45 years of marriage, before his passing in 2003.  Doris was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Salisbury, the Women of the Moose Auxiliary and United Commercial Travelers Group.  She loved watching Westerns, playing BINGO, and in years past, travelling with her husband to the mountains and beach.  But her greatest gift in life was loving people and she had the ability to make those around her just feel beter.

Along with her husband and parents Mrs. Pope was preceded in death by her daughter, Carol Paulette Koontz and her stepdaughter Bridget Purdy Lezon.

Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Phillip Davis (Kim), Rick Pope, Jr. (Judith), her daughter Susan Pope Simpson (David), her brother, Bob Shoemaker (Phyllis), seven grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
