Doris Kristiana Lebouc Thursday, November 4, 1926 - Friday, September 8, 2017
Doris Kristiana (Ericksen) Lebouc was born in Drammen, Norway on November 4, 1926 to loving parents Ingrid & Albin Ericksen. She loved her native land and fondly remembered hiking and skiing down the hills around her home near Oslo with her sister Eva (Renstrom) and the joy her parents and friends brought her. After working in the felt factory during WWII, she adventurously followed a friend to Rockford, Illinois at the age of 20 where she met and married the love of her life, Ernest Lebouc, on December 19, 1953. Ernie and Doris adored each other. After moving to Bellingham in 1967, they owned and operated the Laundromat and later the Sinclair bulk and service station in town. Doris also loved baking, her family and friends, and the cabin she and Ernie owned on Big Stone Lake for so many years with great friends. Doris never said a bad word about anyone. A kinder soul has never been known. A Memorial Service will be held at Zahrbock Funeral Chapel, 108 2nd Avenue, Madison, Minnesota at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The family wishes to thank Fairway View Neighborhoods (formerly Northridge) in Ortonville for the many years of loving care they provided to Doris.
