Doris had a great love for her church and was a very active member of the congregation where she served on the Ladies Aide. She was also a YMCA member and had participated with water aerobics until she was 79.
Doris had a generous heart and a quick wit. She had a great love for her family and especially loved cooking for them. Her family would rave that her cookies, homemade pickles, ground bologna and strawberry jam was the best they ever tasted. Doris also had quite a green thumb, and truly enjoyed being out in nature. She especially loved to vacation at the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glenn Lake and their cottage in Rose City. Doris was very appreciative of everything and everyone that came into her life.
