Obituary for Dorris Ellen Iaquinta

Dorris Ellen Iaquinta was 84 years young. Dorris, of Clarksville, passed from this life on Friday December 2, 2022. She was about to celebrate her 85th birthday in this beautiful world. The world around us will certainly be a-little less bright without her physical presence lighting the way. Dorris was 1 of 5 children, Juanita, Joe, Thomas, Leda Grey, and of them being her twin, Dean. Twins actually ran in the family, as her dad was a twin himself!

Dorris lived a long life with a lot of love surrounding her. Her family members called her “Granny” and it had such a ring to it, that so many others called her that as well. Dorris had 2 children, Vickie Price and Guy Peters, who both went on to make big and beautiful families of their own. Dorris was even lucky enough to be called “Great Great Grandma”. Although she loved everyone dearly, she had a special spot for her great granddaughter Tristin Noelle. They were truly inseparable, and best friends until the end.

Her late husband Joe had passed in 1998. which was the hardest trial of her life. We truly rejoice knowing that they are being reunited at the gates of Heaven. If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings fall, people die but real love is forever. We love you “Granny”

Dorris was preceded in death by her parents: Birch and Elizabeth Wallace Moore, by her siblings: Joe, Thomas, Juanita, Grey, Dean and by her husband: Joe Iaquinta. She is survived by her children: Guy Peters and Vickie (Johnny) Price, all of Clarksville, by her grandchildren: Paul (Dallas) Peters, Daniel (Jessica) Peters, Lynzee and Logan Price, by her great grandchildren: Dominique (Vincent), DeAndre, Desirae, Tristin, Oliver, Tristen, River Lily Ray and Andrew, and by her great great grandchildren Mia and Jamir.
