Doris Mintz Leaman, a native Houstonian, was welcomed into this world on March 6, 1923, by adoring parents, Abraham and Sprinia Mintz, and her three older brothers, Sam, Bert, and Herman.  On April 26, 1941, Doris married the man of her dreams, Mike (Max) Leaman.  They were happily married for 64 years.

Stacy Crumley, granddaughters, Dana Frances and husband Jonathan, Lynda Hallmark and husband Terry, Leslie Suez and husband Eitan, grandson, Marc Sposeep, step-grandchildren, Anissa and Davis Paddock, Lisbeth and Dan Ganninger, great-grandchildren, Jordan, Jason, BJ, and Jeremy Frances, Maia, Arik, and Ezra Suez, Caitlin Sposeep, and step-great-grandchildren, Harper and Lawton Paddock, Garrett and Kate Ganninger, and many loving nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Our family owes a debt of gratitude to Maria Leál, Mother’s devoted friend and caregiver of twelve years.  We gratefully appreciate the dedication of her long-time physicians, Drs. Craig D. Johnson and Sindju Thomas for the conscientious care that made it possible for Mother to live a long and healthy life, to Dr. Hassan Chahadeh and to the wonderful friends and family for their support throughout her life and to the end of her days.

We pray that our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Aunt, and Friend rest peacefully in a lighted paradise.
