Mrs. Doris Lee Eggers, age 81, of Somerset, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at Hospice of Lake Cumberland, Jean Waddle Care Center in Somerset, Kentucky surrounded by her beloved family.
Doris was born February 14, 1936, daughter of Mildred Erp Toby and the late Barnett Toby of Somerset. She grew up in the Grundy Community and attended Shopville School. Doris was of the Baptist Faith and a member of the Rock Lick Baptist Church. She was the widow of the late Rex E. Eggers whom was her High School sweetheart also of the Grundy Community.
Doris was a quiet, gentle person who enjoyed bird watching, working in her yard and flowers. Perhaps her greatest pleasure in life was cooking, she loved feeding anybody whether you were “two, three or four legged” and happened to come to her door. She will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her. Our loss is truly Heaven’s gain.
Besides her Father; Barnett Toby and Husband; Rex E. Eggers, she is preceded in death by two Brothers in law; Leslie Eggers, and Donald Eggers and a Sister in law; Eva Mae Toby.

A Brother; John Toby of Somerset, Brothers and Sisters in law; Robert and Bernice Eggers of West Field, Indiana, Juanita “Nita” Eggers, Othella Eggers all of Somerset. As well as many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
