Doris J. (Stokes) Geiger, 87, formerly of Murrysville, passed away on Wednesday, January 29, 2020.  She was born on February 20, 1932 in Export to the late Herman F. and Beatrice G. Wigle.  She was married to her first husband, William R. Stokes for 49 years, and after Bill passed away, she married Vincent A. Geiger, who also predeceased her.  In addition to being a superb homemaker, mother and wife, she worked as a bookkeeper and secretary for Beckwith Machinery Company and Murry-Park Corporation, and was also the church secretary for the Newlonsburg Presbyterian Church.  She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Murrysville for 65 years.  Having been born during the Great Depression, she was proud of the frugality which that experience engendered in her.  Along with her husband and sons, she built and for many years enjoyed a lake house on the Rideau Canal in Ontario, Canada.  She lived in Murrysville until 2015, when failing health led her to move to her son’s home in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania where she resided until she passed.  She is survived by her two sons, William R. (Gwen) Stokes II of Wellsboro, and Jeffrey S. (Nancy) Stokes of Mechanicsburg; and five grandchildren, Melissa (Matt) Pell, William R. Stokes III, Andrew Stokes, Laura Stokes and Emily Stokes.  She is also survived by her two great-grandchildren, Penelope and Henry Pell.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Herman and Edwin Wigle.  Family and friends will be received at 11 a.m. to 12 noon Friday, February 7, 2020 at which time a service will be held at 12 noon at the Hart Funeral Home Inc., Murrysville.  Interment will follow in Murrysville Cemetery.
