Doris Mae Sharp

Doris Mae (Buckley) Sharp died Dec. 27, 2015, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw.

She was born Sept. 28, 1923, in Decatur, Ill., and, following the death of her father, the family moved to Kansas. She graduated from Morrill (Kan.) High School in 1941, attended business school in Topeka, Kan., and obtained a job in Washington, D.C., with the War Department (now Department of Defense). She attended the dedication of the Pentagon since her job sometimes took her there. Her usual office was on Constitution Avenue not far from the White House. She did military history research for the advancement or promotion of high-ranking officers that had to be approved by Congress.

Doris and Don Sharp met in 1943 in Washington, D.C., through mutual friends. In 1946, following his return from Europe and World War II, they were married in Buckley, Wash. They have lived in the Enumclaw area nearly 70 years. She spent many years doing volunteer work with the American Cancer Society, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Calvary Presbyterian Church.

She is survived by her husband Don; children Dell (Christie), Gloria, Joe and Rick (Kellie); a sister in Kansas; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, at Calvary Presbyterian Church Enumclaw.

Arrangements are by Weeks’ Enumclaw Funeral Home. All may sign the online guest book at
