Funeral Services will be held Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 12:30pm at Royal-Hall Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Ken White officiating. Burial will follow the service in the Clinton Cemetery.
Born on March 27, 1922, Mrs. Doris was the daughter of the late James Edward and Cynthia Louise Parker Holland and the widow of Mr. Paul Crumpler Holland, Sr. She was a lifelong member of Clinton Pentecostal Holiness Church and was a pillar of the church for many years.
