1926 - 2020


Doris M Gage passed away in her sleep on January 31, 2020 at the age of 93.

She was born in Akins, Oklahoma in 1926 to the late Ed and Lizzie Christopher and moved to the central valley of California as a young girl.

She was working at a bank in Delano when she met and married the love of her life, Bob Gage, in 1951. Together they opened Taft Travel Service in 1966 and were able to proudly serve the town of Taft and travel the world extensively with many friends.

After retiring, they moved to the coast and later to Arizona to be closer to family. She spent many hours enjoying crossword puzzles and always loved finding Christmas ornaments from around the world to pass on to her beloved family members.

She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Bob, and their children, Beckie (Mark) Ready, David (Cindy) Gage, Doyle (Debra Harman) Gage, and Bonnie (Marc) Oliver.  She leaves behind 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren who she held dear to her heart.

A beautiful celebration of life was held in her honor on February 7, 2020 in Tucson, Arizona. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Casa de la Luz, 7740 N Oracle Rd, Tucson, AZ 85704. All Condolences may be sent to 9450 E Catalina Hwy, Tucson, AZ 85749.
