Doris Binnion passed peacefully on Sunday, January 24, 2021. She was born in Crowell, Texas, the daughter of Hattie and Dwight Campbell, on July 28, 1924. Doris graduated from Crowell High School in 1941, attended Texas State College for Women for two years, transferred to the University of Texas where she met John Binnion. They were happily married for 57 years until he passed away at 83.
Surviving members include her four loving children, Peggy Hart, John Binnion, Ginny Bettendorf, and Lee Binnion, thirteen adoring grandchildren, and twenty-two amazing great grandchildren. She is also survived by her youngest brother, C. David Campbell. Her brother Lowell passed at the age of 89.
Doris always loved being a mother. She guided and supported us all through good and challenging times. A homemaker who loved cooking, baking, sewing, and traveling. She modeled how to embrace the community and church and form new and lasting friendships with every move the family made.
Upon retirement, John and she moved back to Crowell to be close to her mother and father. Upon their death, they moved to Boise, Idaho. Doris returned to Texas to be with her son, John, and his wife Camila in Kerrville. She and John always loved their home of Texas.
Doris will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery with John.
In lieu of gifts, we would like to recognize all of the staff at Brookdale who she made family. We owe them a debt of gratitude for many years of friendship and their loving care.
The depth and breadth of her loving soul lives on in everyone she touched, shining through in all of us to serve others.
