Doshie Combs, daughter of Sam and Ellen Ritchie was born in September 30, 1911 and she passed away on
October 12, 2000. She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Everett Combs, and by a son,
Charlie B. Combs.
Doshie is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Carl and Phyllis Combs of Indiana. Also surviving are;
one daughter-in-law, Marie Hurt Combs; four daughters, Oleena Singleton, Lillian Combs, Zella Feltner and
Darlene Martin, all of Knott County; eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
Mom was a member of the Summertown Old Regular Baptist Church. That was, I guess, just about the
happiest day of my life when me and Mom and Dad were baptized together.
Mom and Dad worked so hard to raise us six kids, times were hard back then, but they taught us all to
work. They were always there when we needed them with love and understanding. They taught us good
values. I am so proud of both of them. I miss them so much, it seems like a part of me is gone since they
passed away, but I plan on seeing them again. Jesus made a way, I hope to meet them in the air where we will
live again forever more.
Thank-you Lord, Daughter, Zella
