Doris Reece, of Social Circle, Georgia, passed away Thursday, September 12, 2019, at the age of 84. Mrs. Reece put God first in her life. Second only to her love of the Lord, was her love of family. She was tenderhearted, caring, and made friends everywhere she went – always giving out hugs. Mrs. Reece’s social demeanor made her work at Waffle House, for more than 29 years, the perfect setting for meeting and making friends. In her younger years, her hobbies and passions included working puzzles, crocheting, and listening to and collecting Elvis Presley memorabilia. Additionally, Mrs. Reece enjoyed riding motorcycles and raising money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, as well as writing poetry - even turning some works into song. She was preceded in death by her husband, A.K. Reece, Sr.; parents, Spencer E. and Bertha (Ward) Shepherd; sister, Melbie Fedler; brother, Charles Shepherd; great-grandson, Zion Cameron; and step-mother, Janie Shepherd.
