Doris Maxine Barthelemy

January 27, 2022

Doris Maxine Barthelemy, 100, Springdale, Arkansas, went home to be with her Lord on January 22, 2022. Memorial services will be 2 p.m., Saturday, January 29, at Fellowship Bible Church in Springdale. She will be interred at Camp Butler National Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois.

Doris was born January 26, 1921, in Bonners Ferry to the late Charles Jean and Lettie Fidelia (New) Florea. On September 11, 1947, she married Byron Barthelemy in Bonners Ferry.

Doris considered the most important day of her life to have been in December of 1953 when she read a Gospel tract and subsequently trusted Jesus Christ as her Savior. As a result, she had a special passion for passing out tracts, for missions and for prayer, especially as it was related to the persecuted church throughout the world.

She regularly prayed for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren for years. For many years she also enjoyed teaching Good News Clubs to children. Though Doris completed nurses training and worked as a nurse in various locations through the years, her primary focus was on being a homemaker.

She enjoyed gardening, crossword puzzles and beating anyone who would play her in a game of Scrabble.

Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Byron, on May 13, 2008, sons Larry and Ronnie, three grandchildren, brothers and sister.

She is survived by sons Mike Beus and wife Sandy, Spokane, Rick Beus and wife, Jan, Salina, Kansas, Terry Barthelemy and wife Rosemary, also of Salina, Jerry Barthelemy and wife Judy, Hilliard, Florida, and Steve Barthelemy and wife Doris, Springdale, Arkansas, daughters Barbara Lamberth and husband Jim, Ridgecrest, California, Patti Toliver and husband Rich, Branson, Missouri, and Mary Smith and husband Richard, Albuquerque, New Mexico, daughter-in-law Shirley Barthelemy, Palmdale, Californa, 31 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
