Doris Ann Pace, 87 of Brenham, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2024 surrounded by her family.

Doris was born June 20, 1936 to Ben and Dora (Riechers) Wieghat in Independence, Texas. She graduated from Lamar Consolidated in Rosenberg, Texas. She married Rev. Marlin Dale Pace on November 18, 1960 in Rosenberg, Texas.

Doris worked as a secretary for Brenham Independent Schools and faithfully supported her husband’s ministry. She would often teach children’s Sunday School and serve in the church’s nursery, where she had a knack for making sure each child felt important and loved.

She enjoyed country drives and watching beautiful sunsets, which were best followed by a bowl of Blue Bell ice cream. Working crossword puzzles and playing games on the computer with her family was a favorite past-time. She also enjoyed tending her plants and maybe most of all singing. Doris loved her family dearly and cherished time spent with them.

Doris was preceded in death by parents; husband; infant son Randal Pace; brothers Floyd Wieghat, Leroy Wieghat, Woodrow Wieghat, Gary Wieghat; sisters Kathy Wieghat and Gerdine Joyce O’neal.

Left to cherish her memory are children Jim (Stephanie) Pace and Gaylene (Eddie) Slaughter; grandchildren Jillian (Kyle) Patterson, Grant (Jessica) Slaughter, Emma Slaughter, Allison (Frank) Calderon, Landon Pace; great-grandchildren Holden Patterson, Sadie Slaughter, Jack Calderon; sisters and brother-in-law Joydell Janner, Shirley (David) Shows; sister-in-law Judy Wieghat and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services will be Saturday, June 1, 2024 at 2pm at Brenham Memorial Chapel with Pastor David Shows officiating. Interment will follow at Prairie Lea Cemetery.
