Julia Lee Doll

March 28, 1939 — March 17, 2024

Natchitoches

In humble gratitude for a life rich in love and service, the family of Julia Lee Doll announces her peaceful passing at the age of 84 on March 16, 2024, in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Born on March 28, 1939, in Shreveport, LA, Julia embraced life with a spirit of kindness and a heart full of generosity.
 
 Julia now joins in eternal rest those who preceded her: beloved husband of 43 years, Eugene M. Doll, cherished daughter Donna E. Doll, dear parents John & Elizabeth Ethridge, loving foster parents Earl & Eunice Hagy, sister Janice DeGeorge, and brother Robert Ethridge.
 
 A native of Oil City, LA, Julia was a devoted wife and business owner who, alongside her husband, operated a data processing business and newspaper advertising publishing business. Her life was a testament to the virtues of hard work and the joys found in simple pleasures. A proud alumna of St. Vincent's Academy and graduate of Ayres Business College in Shreveport, Julia instilled knowledge and wisdom in herself and her children.
 
 Julia’s life was a reflection of her faith, she attended Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Natchitoches. Her actions spoke of a deep respect for religion and a humble walk with her Creator. Her warmth extended in and out of the home. Julia delighted in playing Bingo and the laughter that accompanied gatherings of family and friends.
 
 Affectionately known as “Dolly” to those she loved, her legacy is carried forward by her family:  daughter Linda D. Lee and husband Edd of Natchitoches, son Dennis E. Doll of Natchitoches, daughter Gloria A. Doll of Dallas, granddaughter Lindsay Lee of Shreveport, grandson Warner Lee and wife Catherine of Shreveport, grandson Jonah Brewer Doll of Dallas, and great-granddaughter Adele Lee of Shreveport, along with numerous relatives and friends who felt the touch of her grace and compassion.
 
 The final tribute to Julia's earthly journey will commence on Thursday, March 21, with visitation from 8:00am to 9:00am at Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home in Natchitoches. A rosary prayer will follow at 9:30am. A brief church service will be held at Immaculate Conception Church at 10:00am with Father Irion St. Romain officiating. Here, in the serenity of shared memories and prayers, we will bid farewell to a soul who embodied the essence of love. Julia will then be laid to rest with graveside services in Memory Lawn Cemetery.
 
 The family wants to thank caregivers Regina Monette, Leslie Coker, and Tammy Raphiel for their dedication and heart-warming care for Julia in her final years.

Many thanks to Dr. Chris Ingram, Dr. Jack Fair and Hospice of Natchitoches and to their nurses and staff for their care during Julia's final days.
 
 May Julia's memory be cherished as a reminder of the profound impact one life, lived with intention and devotion, can have on the world.
 
 In lieu of flowers, the family wishes anyone wanting to pay tribute to Julia, to make a contribution to the Immaculate Conception Church or charity of your choice in her loving memory.
