We lost our dear sister, Doris Ann “Annie” (Sutherland) Kirk in death the morning of April 15, 2014, in Littleton, Colo.

She was best known for her fiery-red hair and high energy temperament that amazed and marveled all that came to know her. Annie was born Nov. 5, 1953, in French Camp, Calif. She won her first battle with cancer in 1968-70 and graduated with her class of 1972 from Graham High School in Graham. She attended college at Midwestern State University. 

Annie was preceded in death by her father, Thomas H. Sutherland.  

She is survived by her mother, Anna Bess Sutherland; a son, Shane Kirk; her twin brother, T. Denis Sutherland (and family Kathy, Jonathan and Brent Sutherland); a brother, Dean L. Sutherland (and family Carol, Devin and Keylee Sutherland), and sister, Dana L. Reid (and family Michael E. Branstetter and Patrick Doyal).
