Doris Barlow Maffei

October 25, 1942 ~ September 16, 2019 (age 76)


Doris Barlow Maffei, 76, of Tallahassee, FL, passed away at home and entered into Heaven on Monday, September 16, 2019.

She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Anthony Maffei, her children, James Maffei, Tom (Amy) Maffei, Ashley (Jim) Parker, Lesley Maffei, Kimberley Kelly, and her 10 grandchildren, whom she adored more than anything, Monroe, Madison, Brayden, Avery, McKinley, Matthew, Jack, Malli, Caroline, and Owen.

Born on October 25, 1942 in Queens, New York to Robert and Margaret Barlow, Doris had a wonderful childhood and upbringing, and loved to share countless stories and memories.

During her adult years, Doris enjoyed being a homemaker while her children were younger. In 1990, she went to work for The Florida Bar, retiring in 2016. Her favorite job of all, however, and the one that made her most proud, was being “Grandma.”

Doris will be remembered most for her generosity, thoughtfulness, outgoing personality, sense of humor, and for her love of family, travel, history, broadway plays, and pictures. Her loved ones miss her dearly, but take comfort in knowing they will be reunited one day in the presence of Jesus.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at 11:00 am at The Episcopal Church of the Advent’s Memory Garden, located at 815 Piedmont Dr., Tallahassee, Florida 32312. with fellowship following at the church.
