Doris Outly, age 73, of Delano, passed away Monday, July 28, 2014, at the Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia.
She was born Sept. 4, 1940, to Joseph and Hildegard (Remer) Hausladen, on the family farm in Waverly.
Doris dearly loved to read, to play cards, and to fill her home with family. She taught her children to sing while they did the dishes, to use humor in the face of fear, and that honor exists in simple work.
Doris enjoyed snowmobiling and bowling in her youth, sporting a high score of 296 at her peak. She joined Curves in recent years, and spoke often of the friendships formed there and at the Senior Center in Delano.
Her departure from this world was sudden but Doris had a mighty faith. An active member of St. Peter’s parish, she always knew where her true home was. She may have taken issue with the timing of her journey, but she always knew her destination. It was her life’s work to live that faith and teach it to her children always with a smile.
Doris was preceded in death by her parents; infant son Joe; brother Marcel Hausladen; and sisters Mildred Hausladen, Bonaventure Hausladen, and Betty Kittock.
She is survived by her husband, James; children Bill Outly, Theresa (Aaron) Vick, Rebecca (Charley) Shaffner, and Ben Outly; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; brothers Kenneth (Beatrice), Clarence, Robert (Mary Ann), Emmett (Jane), Arnold (Linda), Conrad (Sue), and Larry Hausladen; sisters Jean (Glen) Yager, Ann (John) Dalheimer, and Susan (Duayne) Heimerl; and many other relatives and friends.
Mass of Christian Burial took place Friday, Aug. 1 at 11 a.m. at St. Peter Catholic Church in Delano, followed by interment at Calvary Cemetery in Delano.
Visitation was Thursday, July 31 from 4 to 8 p.m., with a 7 p.m. rosary service at Martha’s Hall of St. Peter Catholic Church; and continued Friday from 10 to 11 am., prior to the Mass.
Arrangements were by the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.
