Obituary for Doris M. Messick (Bricker)

Doris M.  Messick (Bricker)
Doris M. Bricker Messick, 86, of Middletown, passed away Monday, October 29, 2018 in her home surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Elizabethtown on August 14, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Paul and Margie Ulrich Bricker.
Doris retired as a real estate broker and property manager for Mylin Messick Real Estate; and
had been a secretary for the former Jones & Zink Insurance Company and an accounting manager for the former W. T. Grant’s Department Store, both of Elizabethtown. She was a 1950 graduate of Elizabethtown High School. Doris was a longtime member of Spring Creek Church of the Brethren, Hershey, and served as a Sunday School teacher for many years. She was Past President of the Middletown Kiwanis Club, and member of the American Business Women’s Association, Middletown, and the Order of the Eastern Star Chapter 407, Elizabethtown. Doris loved reading and music; was an avid sports fan cheering for Penn State, the Steelers, and the Yankees; and enjoyed playing board games. However, it goes without saying that Doris loved nothing more than spending time with her family.
In addition to her parents, Doris was preceded in death by her loving husband, Mylin M. Messick, one sister, and four brothers.
She is survived by two daughters, Patricia L. Kuharic wife of George M. and Sarah M. Runkle wife of Douglas A., both of Middletown; two sons, Joseph M. Messick husband of Dorothy D. of Middletown, and Michael D. Messick of Highspire; eight grandchildren; and six great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held Friday, November 2, 2018, at 2:00 PM in the Spring Creek Church of the Brethren, 335 East Areba Avenue, Hershey, with The Rev. Dennis W. Garrison, officiating. Family and friends are invited to visit with the family in the church from 1:00 PM until time of the services. A private interment will be in the Ebenezer Cemetery, Middletown.
Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, is handling the arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be given in memory of Doris to her church, Spring Creek Church of the Brethren, 335 East Areba Avenue, Hershey, PA 17033; or to Hospice of Central PA, 1320 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
