Doris Jean Reaves

Doris Jean Reaves, 83, of Kingsport, TN, passed away Tuesday, February 27, 2024. Doris was born on January 15, 1941, in Kingsport to parents William Howard and Beulah Thompson. She held a career with Eastman Chemical Company for 29.5 years working in the print shop. Doris was a believer of Jesus Christ and held a strong faith for her savior. She enjoyed spending time reading, searching for antiques, and vacationing at the beach. Doris loved her family and took care of her home and loved ones selflessly. There is no doubt that she will be deeply missed.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her mother who raised her, Gladys Gilreath Thompson.
