Obituary for Doris Arlene Calvert

Doris Arlene Calvert went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on November 24th, 2018 at the age of 95.

She was born in Duluth, Minnesota on November 8, 1923, the eldest of seven children of Henry and Bertha Breimon. She grew up on a farm near Wahpeton, North Dakota during the Great Depression. Upon graduation from high school, she attended the State College of Science, where she studied bookkeeping and accounting. She then moved to Minneapolis with her aunt and cousins to work. They later moved to Brooklyn, New York for work during the Second World War. After the end of the war, on New Year’s Eve 1945, she met her future husband, Jack Calvert, who was still serving in the Navy. They were married in November of 1946 and moved to California, where Jack resumed graduate school in Chemistry upon completing active duty. She spent thirty years living in central Ohio, where Jack was a chemistry professor at Ohio State. During their time in Ohio, God blessed them with two sons, Richard and Mark. Doris was a delightful wife and mother. Doris and Jack then spent 20-some years in Boulder, Colorado. Early in the current century, Doris and Jack moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, where they spent the remainder of their lives. They were married for over 69 years until Jack passed away in 2016.

She is survived by: her son Richard, his wife Norma, their sons John (wife Lauren) and William; and her son Mark, his wife Rosemary, and their children Ben (wife Molly), Danielle (and fiancé Daniel), Emily (husband William), and Sam.

The funeral service will be held at Click Funeral Home in Farragut at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, November 28th, with a private interment service at the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery.
