Doris Bragg Obituary

Doris Ann Bragg, 88, of Villa Grove passed away on Thursday, February 8, 2024 at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

Doris was born to Samuel Vernette and Hazel Martha (Stierwalt) Shoemaker on December 6, 1935 in Champaign County. She married David Walter Bragg on March 24, 1957 in Newman, IL.

She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Dave Bragg; one daughter, Brenda Ann Bragg Xanders (David Xanders); one daughter-in-law, Jeri Bragg; five grandchildren, Melissa Parramore (Richard), Meghan Arthur (Ryan), Madison Xanders, Gabrielle Bragg, Crystal Gress (August); five great grandchildren, Isabel Arthur, Henry Arthur, Theo Arthur, Piper Parramore, Jake Parramore; one brother, Perry Shoemaker; one sister, Kathy Taylor (Wes); a brother and sister-in-law, Stephen and Sandra Bragg.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Hazel Shoemaker; one son, Jeffrey David Bragg; one sister, Carolyn Love (Jim); and sisters-in-law Roberta Bragg and Sharon Bodine.

After their marriage David and Doris worked on the family farm growing grain crops and maintaining cattle and horses. In addition to helping her husband Doris enjoyed cooking and caring for her home and at the end of the day was often seen cross-stitching or sewing. She always looked forward to planning and preparing gatherings for family and friends.

Her faith in Christ became a sustaining strength. Christian fellowship, study, and prayer were greatly valued, giving reminders that this life is momentary. Her eternal hope is in Jesus. Proverbs 3:5-6 is a favorite scripture.  She will be greatly missed by family and friends.

A visitation will be held from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at the Victory Church in Camargo, the funeral will follow at 3:00 pm with Pastor Duane Piercy officiating. Burial will follow at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Camargo.
