Doris Lane in Loma Linda

Just a quick note to let you know that Doris Lane (former owner the of Fawnskin Market) was admitted to Loma Linda earlier in the week.

She has asked for DNR (do not resuscitate) and has been in the hospital a couple of days.

After Doris sold the market she bought some acreage with her son down in Newbury Springs but has been battling cancer.

I don’t have any further information–feel free to post if you do.

Those of you who want to see her or help the family should check in with Barbara at the Gold Pan or Bernie at the Moose Lodge for any details.

I have to say that town has sure been quiet without her unique personality.

Lucy, her pot-bellied pig was in the first issue of the Fawnskin Flyer because she kept escaping and was raising havoc through town.

My favorite story from Doris was when a drug dealer decided it was a good idea to meet their customers in town near the market.

She got her gun and headed out the door, aimed it at them and told them to scram and to not come back.

The colorful gal has led an interesting life and I miss sitting on the old bench in front of the market so we could chat, share the dirt, and hear about her life.

Doris has impacted a whole lot of people and we are sending good thoughts and love to her and the family.
