A service will beheld at 1 pm Tuesday at Free Will Baptist Church for the Rev. Orbin H. Doss , 73, who died Saturday in Turlock. Burial will be at Turlock Memorial Park.
Visitation will be from 8 am to 9 pm today and from 8 am to noon Tuesday at Allen Mortuary.
Mr. Doss, a native of Arkansas, had lived in Turlock since 1979. He was a church pastor in Arizona, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Hughson and Modesto. He was a member of the Free Will Baptist Church.
Survivors include his wife, Cleo Doss of Turlock, two sons, Don Doss of Hanford and Phil Doss of Porterville, a daughter, Sue Lindsey of Rio Vista; two brothers; five sisters, including Nellie Howey of Gustine; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
End of obit. His wife Cleo died in Fresno County in 1997; I'd bet even money she was living with their son in Porterville at the time. Someone in Fresno may be willing to look her up there. She had no obit in the Bee. ===========================================
Some things I try to copy at the bottom of every obit I post:
1) I'm not related and didn't know the person. I do this to repay a number of people who did lookups for me, in a general way. They almost never need a lookup in Stanislaus County, but others do. If you would like to return the favor, in the same general way, I suggest the GenForum site for your county. There are usually unanswered obit requests.
2) Allen Mortuary is still in business. They might be able to add to the data.
