Obituary

Doris Marie Richardson, 79, of Neptune, NJ passed away surrounded by family on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, NJ.  Doris was born in Plateau, AL on July 17, 1942 to the late Cesar Ellis and Carrie Mae Means.

She spent her early years in Buffalo, NY. After the passing of her mother, Doris returned to Plateau, AL, where she attended Mobile County Training School.  She married Origra Richardson, Sr. and they had 5 children together, 4 boys and 1 girl.  Doris divorced her husband in 1982 and later had her last-born child, a girl.

In the summer of 1971, Doris moved to the Neptune Village where she earned the reputation for her “open door” policy.  Every Sunday she cooked and anyone was welcome to a plate.  She was one of the many mothers of the Neptune Village.

She was a member of Mt Carmel Baptist Church, Neptune, NJ and later United Fellowship Baptist Church, Asbury Park, NJ.  She was a God-fearing woman, who loved spending time with her family.
