Doris G. Goins

Doris G. Goins, a beloved member of the community, passed away on January 16, 2024, at the Jean Waddle Care Center in Somerset, Kentucky. She was surrounded by her loving family during her final moments. Doris was born on February 17, 1962, in Somerset, Kentucky to late Eckle and Celta (Morgan) Bryant.

Doris had a remarkable career as a cake decorator for Kroger. She poured her heart and soul into creating beautiful confections that brought joy to countless customers. Her creativity and attention to detail were unmatched, leaving behind an indelible mark on all those who enjoyed her creations. She was a member of the Mill Creek Community Church.

Outside of work, Doris cherished time spent with her grandchildren and looked forward to family gatherings. She had a passion for couponing and used her skills to find the best deals for herself and loved ones. Doris was a kind-hearted woman with a radiant smile that would light up any room she entered.

Doris is survived by her devoted husband, Dave Goins, who stood by her side through thick and thin. Together they created a loving home filled with warmth and laughter. Her legacy will live on through their wonderful children: Bo Goins (Brandy) and Monica Ridner (Sam). 

Doris also leaves behind a brother: Jay Bryant (Carolyn); and the deceased siblings are Allen Bryant, Becky Lynn Perry, Vickie Taylor, and Jennifer Bryant. Each sibling shared a unique bond with Doris that resonated throughout their lives.

In addition to her children and brother, Doris is survived by an abundance of grandchildren who brought immense joy to her life: Aaliyah Ridner, Kylie Ridner, Nicklaus Ridner, Natalie Goins, and Jacob Goins; bonus grandchildren Havyn, Skylar, Bailey, Kelsey, Raylen, Brantlee, Kendal, Gus, Archie, Brook, and Alaina. Each grandchild held a special place in Doris's heart, and her love for them knew no bounds.
