Weatherford Woman Receives Miracle Moment From Ukelele Church Band

A Miracle Moment happened at West Fork at Weatherford. The Glenview Baptist Church Ukulele Band held a special performance for resident, Ms. Doris J., at 2 p.m. on January 5 at West Fork at Weatherford, Doris’ senior living community, at 980 Hilltop Dr, Weatherford, TX 76086.

Doris managed the band and sang with them for 20 years at their church. The band has also made a picture book for her and presented it to her during the event. Doris was surprised to be honored by the group! The community also served refreshments and cake.

Doris has volunteered for many years with several organizations. After being widowed at the young age of 51, Doris remarried and started the next chapter of her life with Gil in 1989. She had been a very involved member at Victory Baptist Church.

After marrying Gil, she continued her volunteer work at Glenview Baptist Church. Her talents included working with the children through the AWANAS program (a world-wide nonprofit ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship solutions for ages 2-18), teaching a lady’s Bible class, visiting those in the hospital, and working with the prison ministry and Angel Tree programs.

Doris J.’s Miracle Moment

She accompanied the pastor and others to Russia after the Berlin Wall was torn down on three different occasions. Her hospital visitations grew to becoming the director of the homebound ministry. She would gather teams to visit those church members who could no longer attend in person.

Doris oversaw the Christmas gifting for these individuals as well. Every Tuesday, these selfless teams would visit and pray with homebound church members. While not an original member of the Glenview Ukulele Band and Hallelujah Chorus, she was a faithful member for almost twenty years. She assisted Pastor Baw with scheduling and working with the various facilities for their performances.

Doris, known by many as “Granny,” also led a Bible study on Tuesday nights where anyone from six to 20-years-old could gather for burgers, Bible study, and games. She has touched many lives in many ways and her community was honored to celebrate her.
