Doris I. Holmes passed away on November 29, 2022, at the age of 94.  She was born in Detroit Michigan, on November 22, 1928, to the late Fred Grantly and Irene Inis VanSkiver.

She grew up in Hazel Park Michigan where she met the love of her life, Robert Henry Holmes.  They married on June 21, 1952.  They spent many wonderful years together at the cottage on the Tittabawassee River.  They enjoyed boating, snowmobiling, and collecting antiques.  Robert preceded her in death on August 31, 1976. 

She married John William Blunt on March 7, 1981.  They were members of a CB Radio Club, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and the Moose Lodge.  They spent their retirement in Gladwin MI in the summer, and Lehigh Acres, FL in the winter.  John preceded her in death on June 24, 2008.

She enjoyed playing cards and organized the card club at her independent living apartment building during the last year of her life. 

Doris is survived by her son, Garrett (Lynne) Holmes; daughter, Lori (William) Warpup; grandchildren, Ryan (Lorri) Warpup, Reed (Megan) Warpup, Tyler Holmes, and Trevor Holmes; 6 great-grandchildren who were the love of her life, Sawyer, Sylvan, Cambriana, Kimberlee, Tawna, and Amara Warpup. They lovingly referred to her as “GG”.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date with interment at White Chapel Cemetery.
