We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Varnville-Hampton Chapel
Mrs. Doris Jeanette O’Quinn Freeman, 86, entered into eternal rest Wednesday evening, June 1, 2022, with her loving family by her side at her residence, at 1595 Charleston Highway, Hampton, South Carolina. She was the widow of Mr. Lloyd Freeman.
Born March 3, 1936 in Bluffton, SC, she was a daughter of the late Charlie Alvin O’Quinn and Ruth Cleo Dean O’Quinn. Doris was a member of Mount Olive Baptist Church. Doris was a blessing to all who knew her. She enjoyed spending time with her children, her family and her friends. Doris’s loving kindness, constant helping hands and her beautiful smile will never be forgotten by her family, her friends, or her pets. She was always loving, loyal, devoted and dedicated.
Doris worked in a sewing factory for several years, a cotton mill for ten years, Holiday Inn for ten years, and Lanes Restaurant for 25 years as a wonderful waitress, hostess and cook. She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandma, and great great grandma, and always a homemaker. Doris was a trooper, she fought so hard to stay with us here until the end. With each story, each tear, and each tender memory, a life such as her will always fill a place in our hearts.
