Doris passed away on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at the Stanton Health Center.

Doris Ann (Leiding) Kuester was born on July 24, 1940 near Orchard, NE to Henry and Alice (Bridge) Leiding. She attended rural school near Orchard, graduated from Orchard High School in 1957, and earned her teaching certificate from Wayne State College. Doris taught in the Neligh, NE area prior to her marriage.

On September 15, 1962, she was united in marriage to Harlan Kuester at the United Brethren Church in Orchard, NE. They lived on a farm south of Wisner until December of 2018, when they moved to Stanton, NE. Doris was an active farm wife and later worked in the Dietary Department at the Colonial Haven Nursing Home.

Doris was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Stanton, and previously had been a member of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, rural Wisner-where she was active in Ladies Aid and taught confirmation classes. After the church closed, she became a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Wisner, where she belonged to its Ladies Aid. Doris was involved in 4-H while her children were participating.

Doris enjoyed gardening, canning, tending to her flowers-especially her African violets, sewing, playing cards, and attending her grandchildren’s activities. She was always willing to lend a helping hand where needed.
