Doris Louise (Jacobs) Hargrove passed away on Sept. 4, 2021, from causes incident to age. Born to Lonnie Herchel Jacobs and Clara Ettie Choate, Doris grew up running barefoot through the hills and climbing the trees of rural Oklahoma with her siblings.
She fell in love with Robert Lee Hargrove (Bob) and moved to Kansas City where they married on Oct. 29, 1948. They were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Dallas Temple on Oct. 25, 1995. They raised their five children in Mission, Kan., where the kids learned the value of hard work the old-fashioned way in their dad’s butcher shop.
Doris was a dedicated wife and mother. In 1957, she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, changing the course of her family’s path forever. Her example of dedication to the gospel will remain in their hearts as an example of righteousness.
After a formal retirement, Bob and Doris built a beautiful home atop a hill overlooking a lake in Pleasanton, Kan. This is where her heart is still. Doris was known for her skills in gardening and food preservation, even having an article written about her incredible food storage. She was a talented artist who filled her home with delightful oil paintings. Doris was a member of PEO. Doris was incredibly generous with her worldly possessions and selflessly passed along treasures as her family admired them.
She loved and blessed the lives of her 18 grandchildren. They will remember her for always having soda to drink, the complete freedom she gave them, her fudge and pecan-topped sheet cakes, her industry, taking a quick rest on a freshly-made bed, her powder puffs on her makeup table, joining her bending in the garden to harvest fresh vegetables, coming with them down to the dock to swim in the lake, always cooking and baking in the kitchen, frying freshly-caught fish for grandpa, feeding all of the barn cats, driving them “into town” and to the dump for a trash run, and for playing a mean hand of Rook. She delighted in her family, and they all felt divinely loved.
Doris is survived by daughters Jeanne Moerer, of Iola, Kan., Rebecca Hinds, of St. Johns, Ariz., and Debby (David) Monk, of Mesa, Ariz.; son Jim, of Iola, Kan.; sister Gloria McCoin, of Vinita, Okla.; 18 grandchildren; and 56 great-grandchildren.
Doris and her family are so grateful for the kind care given by Windsor Place in Iola.
A private family service will be held at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Pleasanton. If you wish to make a contribution in memory of Doris, please make it to a charity of your choice. Online condolences can be left at www.schneiderfunerals.com.
