Doris Hogan Cain was born to the late James C and Hattie Mae Hogan on December 21, 1929 in Milledgeville, GA. Doris graduated from high school in 1947. While in high school she took cosmetology and was a manicurist for a short time. Mom became an incredibly talented Chef and Caterer where she took great pride in walking in her father's footsteps knowing her way around the kitchen, making fabulous meals for people all over town. She loved her home, church, community and family. She married the late William (Bill) Cain April 7, 1973 and they lived together in Washington, DC before relocating back to Milledgeville. Doris is survived by one child, Saleemah “Connie” Sabree and five grandchildren: Fareed (Kem) Rasheed of Kennesaw, GA, Latisha (Tish) Rasheed of Dallas, Ga, Sakeenah (Keena) Smith of Conyers, Ga, Azzaam F Sabree of Atlanta, GAand Laila M Porter of Conyers, GA. She is also survived by six great-grandchildren: Shontelle Rasheed, Sakhari (Zakee) Smith, Shawn Smith , Mehki Rasheed, Ameer Nuriddin and Jahmai Porter. Lastly, survived by her Aunt Marie (Lloyd) Dumas, Deborah (Cain) Tribble, Steven Cain, Stanley Cain, and close loved ones. Doris was predeceased by her loving husband May 10, 1993. She loved hosting and she did it best, from having the most memorable card game gatherings to her well thought out and planned dinners with place settings, decorations, and punctuality Doris was always the last to take a seat, if she did at all. Mom loved and was blessed to travel to foreign countries and she always took her “one and only daughter” which is what Connie loved to say to her mother. She was enthused on taking road trips, she and her husband Bill, never missed a chance to take their grandkids with them and always making a point a stop at South of the Border. She took time to love and care for her family and friends. She was Southern Hospitality at its best and it was truly depicted in her everyday life. From handwritten notes/greeting cards to always having something in her hands to give you when she was invited into your home. Doris took gratitude in offering food or small tokens upon leaving her home for you take something along with you to everyone, even if she did not like you. Her meals and hospitality will truly be missed by so many who knew her to be that special woman that would always have something for you to eat and a place to stay just like her parents and grandparents. I'll always remember my Mother helping me with my children when it was needed which was truly an ordeal for her and she survived it.
