Obituary of Doris Louise Kinsman

Kinsman, Doris L. (Landwehr)

Saginaw, Michigan


Loving mother and grandmother passed away on Thursday, February 3, 2022 at Ascension St. Mary’s in Saginaw, she was 92 years old.

Doris was a prolific reader, who enjoyed cutting up the dance floor at weddings, building epic family photo albums, and sharing her notable “Dori-isms”.   She was a faithful and founding member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church for many years.

Daughter of the late William and Leona Landwehr, Doris was born August 11, 1929 in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. She was a dear sister to her siblings, including Gerald Landwehr and Jeanette Sherman, who predeceased her, and her surviving siblings: Donald Landwehr, Shirley Reed, Ruth (Del) Smolinski, and Judi Pawloski.  She married H. Richard “Dick” Kinsman on June 25, 1948, who preceded her in death.   Doris and Dick had six sons and two daughters: Ronald (Bethany) Kinsman, Constance (James) Eller, the late Michael (Trisha) Kinsman, the late William “Liam” (Kathy) Kinsman, Theresa (Anthony) Ioppolo, Thomas (Martha) Kinsman, John (Krysten) Kinsman, and Jeffrey Kinsman.

 Doris cherished her family above all else and was always overjoyed to chat about her 17 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren, along with her many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
