Doris Eva Louise (Richford) Behm of Cranston, sadly passed away on January 9, 2023 at the age of 97. Born May 1, 1925 in Warwick, Rhode Island, she was the only child of Edmund and Frances "Fannie" Richford. She will be lovingly remembered as the matriarch of her family. On November 7, 1941, Doris married the love of her life, Walter Behm. They worked alongside each other in several business adventures and raised five children together. In her free time, Doris loved crafting and crocheting. In her later years, she discovered the internet and enjoyed playing games on her computer.
