They were all “so precious” to her. She is survived by her brother, Michael, and joins in heaven her parents, Michael J. and Doris (Dee) Hynes, and sisters Martha, Isabelle and Joan.
Doris grew up in Jamaica Plain and attended Girls’ Latin School of Boston. On occasion, she and her friends would jump the fence at Fenway Park to watch her beloved Red Sox. She attended Tufts College where she met her love, Vinny, made many lifelong friends and cultivated a love for reading and learning. She graduated with a B.A. in English literature.
Doris showed her creativity and passion for the fine arts through her oil and watercolor paintings and drawings. She was a talented seamstress as well. Doris had an eye for beauty that she lovingly shared through her tireless devotion to her work in the church bazaars at Saint Bridget’s Parish in Framingham. Her creativity and passion for the arts and crafts which she shared through the years became a hallmark of the parish annual event, only to be eclipsed by her unwavering spirit of volunteerism which she offered so freely.
Doris and Vincent moved to East Sandwich where they found their forever home. She continued to express herself in her garden and the beautiful landscape that she created with flowers. In her selfless way, she spent her time volunteering at the Sandwich Public Library, stocking and selling used books. An avid reader, she was knowledgeable on all topics and loved a challenging conversation.
No house or table was too small because her heart was so big. Her legacy is her family and her proudest project.
A funeral service was held Oct. 28 at Corpus Christi Parish in Sandwich, followed by burial at Sandwich Town Cemetery. Funeral services were under the care of the Nickerson-Bourne Funeral Home.
