Mrs. McRaney was born Oct. 10, 1939, to Wilburn and Ruthie Pearl Pierce Dyess.  Doris Nell lived her life to the fullest, immensely enjoyed her grandchildren and expressed her Christian love by helping others.  Besides sitting with those that were home bound, she enjoyed cooking and bringing food to those in her community. Doris Nell also loved to spend time with her close-knit group of ladies and play Dominoes and Bunco, as well as work in her garden.  She will be well remembered for her delicious chicken and dumplings that everyone looked forward to her bringing to family Get-togethers.  Mrs. McRaney was a member of Lone Star United Methodist Church.
