BELOIT, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) -Doris Stryffeler, a beloved mother, sister and grandmother, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 21, 2023, in Salem, Ohio.
Born on December 2, 1931, in Beloit, Ohio, she lived a remarkable and fulfilling life of 91 years. Doris was the cherished daughter of Frederick and Bessie (Wuthrick) Zurbrugg.
Doris was a woman of great strength, kindness and spirit. Her life was a testament to the power of love, family and faith. She was a devoted member of the Bethel United Church of Christ in Beloit, where she found great comfort and community.
She had a deep appreciation for nature and the outdoors, often spending her free time watching birds and tending to her garden.
