Doris M. Page, age 98, of Guttenberg, Iowa, was called home peacefully at 2:10 a.m., on Saturday, June 30, 2018, at Guttenberg Care Center, surrounded by her loving family. To honor Doris' life, funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street, with Pastor Loren Hirschy officiating. Burial will be in Dubuque Memorial Gardens.

Doris was born on March 4, 1920, in Campo, Colorado, daughter of August and Maude (Jenkins) Kroeger.

Doris was united in marriage to the love of her life, Bartholomew "Bart" Crimmins, in 1942, and they were blessed with 48 years together, and 4 wonderful children, before he was sadly called home ahead of her on November 8, 1990. Doris was fortunate to go on and find love once again, at the fine young age of 72, with Raymond Leppert, and the couple was blessed to be granted with 9 years together before he too was called home ahead of her. Doris would find love yet once again, for the final time along her earthly journey, and was united in marriage to Clint Page. They would spend 10 years together before Clint was also called home ahead of her. Doris lived an abundantly full life with 98 years of joy primarily keeping her strong will and spirit alive. In her free time, Doris always enjoyed jumping in the car and hitting the open road; sometimes never knowing if she would be returning home that day, or just beginning a grand adventure which would take her to a different state to see new sights at the end of the day. Doris was also well known for her undeniable love of onion rings, and was able to regularly polish off an entire jumbo size order without much of a challenge. Our hearts ache today at the mere thought that our new reality doesn't contain another opportunity to see our beautiful Doris with a kleenex in her hand, or a toothpick at the ready. But, we know and trust that the Lord has her safely in His loving arms and she's enjoying quite a family reunion with all of her loved one's who've been called home already. We will miss you more than words could ever say Mom, and we are forever grateful that the Lord lovingly placed us into your care along the way. May God bless you until we see you again.

Those left to cherish Doris' memory include

her children,
Barbara Smith, Guttenberg, IA,
Linda (Jim) Nachtmann, Luxemberg, IA
and Jan Schafer, Garnavillo, IA;

11 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren;

along with numerous step-children, step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Bartholomew "Bart" Crimmins; her 2nd husband, Raymond Leppert; her 3rd husband, Clint Page; her son, Michael Crimmins; and a brother, Ted Kroeger.
