Doris Jane Estabrook passed away November 12, 2011 at home after battling a brief illness. Doris was instrumental in the breeding, showing and herding of German Shepherd dogs for over 48 years. It was her passion in life to the advancement of the breed according to the German Shepherd standard.

She is preceded in death by her parents, John Edwin and Florence C. Owen; beloved husband of 38 years, Herbert Edward Estabrook; and son, John Edward Estabrook. She is survived by daughters Constance Eileen Estabrook of Gardnerville, Claire Louise Estabrook of Springfield, Missouri, Denise (Norm) Ziola of Topaz Lake and various nieces, nephews and granddaughters.
