Doris Henderson Samsel, 85, passed away peacefully at her home at Highland Farms on Tuesday, May 2, 2006.

Born May 30, 1920, in Washington, D.C., Doris was one of three daughters of the late Mary Maude Price Henderson and James Harvey Henderson. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Evelyn and Hilda.

Doris was married to the late Everett Samsel. She is survived by her son, Jim Samsel and daughter-in-law, Kim McGuire, of Asheville; son, Tom Samsel and daughter-in-law, Mary Samsel, of Darnestown, Md.; as well as grandchildren, Patrick, Brian and Courtenay of Darnestown and Emily Samsel of Asheville; and many loving extended family members and friends.

Doris attended Eastern High School and Southeastern University in Washington, D.C. In her early career, she worked at Riggs Bank and The Washington Post newspaper. Doris became a travel agent during the 1970s and thoroughly enjoyed traveling the world while leading groups and tours. Doris said her favorite job of all was being a mother and she volunteered regularly with her boys during their school years.

The Samsel family extends special appreciation to the caregivers who provided compassionate assistance to Doris in her final months.

A graveside service will be held in Beallsville, Md.
