Doris L. Hartranft, 84, of Montoursville, passed away Monday, May 15, 2017, at UPMC Susquehanna-Williamsport, surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald E. Hartranft.

Born May 22, 1932, in Williamsport, she was a daughter of the late George W. and Laura C. (Bohart) Gephart.

Doris was formerly employed at CA Reed. She was a member of the former St. Paul United Methodist Church. She enjoyed crocheting, cooking, having family picnics and going to Sunday drives through the woods. Most of all Doris treasured every moment spent with her family.

To honor her wishes, a graveside service will be held privately in Trout Run Cemetery at the convenience of the family.  

Arrangements are being handled by Knight-Confer Funeral Home.
