Doris Eva's Story

Text size

Doris Eva (McDaniel) Suveges Doris Eva (McDaniel) Suveges, 92 of Buckeye, AZ., passed away October 17, 2017 with her family by her side. She was born June 2, 1925 in Donalsonville, GA to Augustus and Lula McDaniel. Doris was one of the original polio survivors from Warm Springs Georgia when President Franklin D. Roosevelt was residing there. She spent many years there alongside the president receiving treatment for her polio. But this did not hold her back in life. Even with leg braces she was an accomplished homemaker and later went on to drive a car and work as a bookkeeper outside the home. This was quite an accomplishment for a person with the challenges she faced in life. Doris is survived by her daughters and their husbands, Glenda & Skip Allen, Janet & David Cardoza and Pat & Don Downey along with eight grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren and one great great grandson. She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Rudy Suveges in 2005. Memorial contributions are welcome and should be mailed to Roosevelt Warm Springs Dev Fund, PO Box 1050, Warm Springs, GA, 31830 in memory of Doris McDaniel, where those wonderful doctors and nurses took such loving care and helped her to walk. Condolences for the family may be sent to www.thompsonfuneralchapel.com. Arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Chapel in Goodyear.
