Doris Ann Robertson was born on May 19, 1940, and passed away at the family ranch North of Tahlequah on Dec. 9, 2006, after an extended illness. Doris was the youngest of Richard and Macel Bryan’s four children. She was born at their family home in Broken Arrow.

Doris grew up at the family farm in Broken Arrow with her brothers Virgil, Clyde, and Jack Bryan. She attended Coweta High School and was the Homecoming Queen in 1958. Doris met the love of her life, Bob Robertson, there in school. Doris and Bob married and started their family.

In 1965, they moved their family to Tahlequah where she worked at the Bill Willis Skill Center, then for Keith Holland Insurance, Paul Cook Insurance and Mark Hodson Insurance. Over the last several years, Doris worked in the family business with her husband Bob at Northeastern Glass. Doris and Bob had 49 wonderful years together raising a wonderful, caring family.

Doris was a farm girl at heart. Being the youngest and only girl in her family, she grew up taking care of the livestock and hauling hay with the best of the men. Doris and her husband have enjoyed their family farm life here in Tahlequah.

Doris loved everyone and enjoyed her years working with the public. She never forgot a name or a face and always cared for the lives of those she touched. She had a strong faith and grew up in the church. Throughout her life, her family and friends have always admired her strength.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Macel Bryan; and her three brothers, Virgil, Jack, and Clyde.

She is survived by her husband Bob Robertson; daughter, Sherry Baker and husband Bill John; and sons Mike Robertson and special friend Diana Hallum, Bobby Robertson and wife LaDonna, and Tracey Robertson and wife Shannon, all of Tahlequah.

She is also survived by her grandchildren, who were the light of her life: Bryan Robertson, Trae Robertson, Aaron Robertson, Jake Robertson, Bailye Robertson, Tate Robertson, Cole Robertson, Brooke Kennedy and husband Craig, Angie Barnhart and husband Chris, Lacee Jarvis and husband Ryan, B.J. Baker and wife Heather, and J.R. Baker and fiancee Meagan; great-grandchildren Erica, Kelcy, Chase, and Carlye Kennedy, Jake Drueppel, Ryleigh Barnhart, Jencee and Jillian Jarvis. She is also survived by sister-in-law Loretta and Richard Pierce of Wapanucka and sisters-in-law Wanda Bryan and Sandra Bryan both of Coweta, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
