RICHARDSON – Doris Jean McCarty Bragg, 84, of Richardson, died Feb. 25, 2013, of complications from a 13-year battle with Parkinson-Plus Syndrome.

Doris was born Feb. 20, 1929, in Weatherford to Norman T. and Adele McCarty. Doris was the oldest of six children and she graduated from Weatherford High School in 1947. As a young, striking beauty, Doris moved to Dallas and lived with her Aunt Sue Garrett to attend Arlington State College and SMU. Doris was a member of SOS Sorority.

On Feb. 21, 1953, Doris married a very tall and handsome Francis Bragg. They began their lives together in Oak Cliff, raising two children. Doris was a member of the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts, The Dallas Chapter of Women’s Council of Realtors and embraced a career as a real estate agent and broker in Oak Cliff.

Lifelong friends were made in Oak Cliff and at Glen Oaks United Methodist Church in the Open Door Sunday School Class.

In 1974, the family moved to Richardson, where Doris was a member of the Richardson Women’s Club, Richardson Republican Women’s Club, Eastern Star, Spring Valley United Methodist Church’s Beacon Sunday School Class and United Methodist Women. Doris was a bright, strong willed, quick-witted, caring person, who loved to cook, bake, read, travel, shop and play bridge.
