Mrs. Doris E. Aucter-Mack, 78 of Soft Maple Road, Croghan, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, February 8, 2019 while surrounded by her loving family.

Born October 21, 1940 in Carthage, the daughter of Floyd E. and Violet H. (Mealus) Towne. She enjoyed a happy childhood in Carthage and graduated from Carthage High School in 1959. Soon thereafter on July 11, 1959, Doris married John H. Aucter, whom predeceased her on October 22, 1981. Born of this marriage are two daughters, Rebecca Elaine and Deborah Ann. Doris again found love and married William L. Mack on September 5, 1987

Doris employed her talents in many ways, in the early years, she worked for Climax Manufacturing in Castorland and Beaverite in Croghan. Doris donated much time to the Croghan Fire Department Auxiliary helping those in need. She obtained her CNA certification in 1984 and cared for the elderly at the Greenbrier Nursing Home in Carthage and later at the Auburn Nursing Home in Auburn, NY. 

Doris was a music enthusiast, spending much time in her early life travelling around the North Country with John’s band, the Sodbusters. In recent years, she and William have attended many local bluegrass festivals and concerts. Doris loved shopping for shoes and purses, socializing with family and friends and telling stories. She also enjoyed cooking, as it was a labor of love for her friends and family.

Becky and Debbie,
So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Reading this and remembering your dad as well brings back memories of band practice at your house and the barn dances. I know you both will cherish her memory for as long as you live.
