Doris Gump

December 21, 1928 — November 2, 2022

Quakertown

Doris B. Gump, age 93, of Quakertown, PA, died peacefully on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, at Phoebe Health Care Center in Richlandtown. She was born on December 21, 1928, in Philadelphia and was the daughter of the late William and Pauline (Marx) Bull. Like Will Smith, she was West Philadelphia born and raised, graduating from Overbrook High School. She was predeceased by her husband, Richard, after 34 years of marriage.

She was an employee of the Quakertown School District, retiring in 1993 after many years as the secretary at Milford Middle School. She was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Quakertown, where she sang in the choir, taught vacation church school and served on numerous committees through the years.

Doris is survived by her two children, Janet (Kurt) Dise and John (Lisa) Gump as well as three grandchildren, Melissa, Matthew, and Skylar.

She thought of others before herself and was exceedingly generous with her time and resources, supporting numerous local organizations by volunteering in a variety of roles. She was quick to aid anyone who needed help and was a prolific sender of cards to family and friends to mark special occasions, wish a speedy recovery in the event of a health issue or offer comfort in times of sorrow.

A viewing will be held at 10:00 a.m. and a funeral service at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 11, 2022. Both will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 102 N. Hellertown Avenue in Quakertown. Interment will follow at Whitemarsh Memorial Park in Ambler, PA.
