Obituary for Doris Puckett

Doris M. Puckett, 90, passed away Tuesday, June 4, 2019. She was born May 1, 1929 to Alva and Della (Foster) Carson in Great Bend, KS. Doris graduated from Wesley Nursing School in 1950 and worked as an Operating Room Nurse at Wesley, St. Joseph Hospital, Wichita VA Hospital, and the Wichita Clinic for most of her career until her retirement in 1997. Doris married Floyd Puckett in 1950 just before he deployed with the Air Force; they adopted their children, DeAnn and Bradley, as newborns in 1958 and 1963. Doris was always known as an impeccable dresser and was a talented seamstress who made stylish clothes for herself and her family. She was an avid reader. Because Doris was a dedicated grandmother and enjoyed attending the activities of her five grandchildren, she was known as "Gammon" to everyone. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Floyd; daughter, DeAnn Wellemeyer; son, Brad Puckett; and grandson, Phillip "Doobie" Wellemeyer. Doris is survived by her son-in-law, Bob Wellemeyer; grandchildren, Gerard Wellemeyer, Danielle (Nick Greusel) Wellemeyer, Juju Wellemeyer, and Barret Wellemeyer; and great-granddaughter, Sami Wellemeyer. Memorial Graveside Service: 10 am, Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Hillcrest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Victory In The Valley, 3755 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67218.

I started working with Doris in 1990 at the Wichita Clinic. I learned a lot from Doris, not only professionally but how to dress. She was usually pretty direct when she would ask, “Does that outfit match “? After that, we had an ongoing joke and would tease each other. Her sense of humor and laughter was quite contagious. I’m sure she will be missed by many. Rest In Peace Doris. Loved you, Gayla DeBoer

Doris was a beautiful soul who would light up a room and her laugh was contagious! She was an excellent nurse who took exceptional care of her patients and families she was caring for. She was an awesome mentor and coworker to the team she worked with. You utilized your gift given to you by God well and now you for you to enjoy your Heavenly rewards!
