Doris E. Mutchler, 94, of Nisbet, died peacefully Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021 at The Embassy of Loyalsock where she had been a resident for several years afflicted with Alzheimer's. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Daniel M. Mutchler, on Oct. 25, 2010.
Born Nov. 25, 1926 in Lakehurst, N.J., she was a daughter of the late Guy and Edith (Scott) Brownlee.
She was a 1944 graduate of Jersey Shore High School and a member of Nisbet United Methodist Church where she enjoyed lending a hand at any event, was a Girl Scout leader, and provided floral arrangements.
Her most favorite place to be was in New Jersey at a beach as this was where she was born and raised. She vividly remembered the Hindenburg disaster as she lived near the Naval Base in Lakehurst, N.J. She enjoyed being with her family on camping trips and traveling across the U.S., and especially loved spending time with her grandchildren. She was a seamstress for Brozman's for many years and loved making and teaching ceramics.

Mutchler (Becky) of Cogan Station; a daughter, Diane Oeler (Pudge) of Nisbet; four grandchildren, Kyle Mutchler, Erin Ulrich (Todd), Jeremy Steppe (Kate), and Joel Steppe (Krystle); five great-grandchildren, Brea Mutchler, Tyler Ulrich, Arlo Steppe, Hudson Steppe, and Lennon Steppe; and a brother-in-law, Richard Mutchler of Jersey Shore.
