Doris May “Mickey” West-Addy-Colton

| November 13, 2017

FRESNO – Doris May “Mickey” West-Addy-Colton, 95, passed away from the home of her daughter Julia in Fresno, Ohio, with the angels, family and friends gathered at her bedside.  Mickey made her decent to go home to be with the Heavenly Father her “Shepherd” on Saturday November 11, 2017.

Mickey had a love and zest for this life that was un-measureable.  95 years of laughter, wisdom, and advice, but most importantly love.  She was born to the late Walter “Mick” and Harvella (Adams) West on May 19, 1922.  She is preceded in death by two brothers Walter James and Harold West; two former husbands Richard Addy and Gary Colton.

Continuing Mickey’s legacy are her daughter Julia (Brian) Brown of Fresno; two grandchildren her “sweet boy” Austin Brown and “Sugar Cookie” Autumn Brown.

Mickey was a lifelong resident of West Lafayette, Ohio graduating from West Lafayette High School in 1940 and retiring after a combined total of 54 years of service from Moore Enameling, Jones Metal and Jones Zylon respectfully.  She was a lifelong member of West Lafayette United Methodist Church and the Eastern Star.  Mickey was a charter member of the West Lafayette Junior Guild Club and helped to found the Janusian Club.  She also served for many years on the West Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and enjoyed all of her many friends in her beloved Hausey Club over the years.

If there is a lesson to be absorbed from Mickey’s 95 years it would be this-love generously, be kind and though the body may be old and broken-one’s heart, mind and spirit are forever young.

Graveside funeral services will be held in Fairfield Cemetery, West Lafayette on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 11:00am with Pastor Chris Cutshall officiating.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the Coshocton County Animal Shelter and/or Coshocton Interim Hospice, envelopes will be available at the graveside.
