Doris was a long-time member of the Church of Pavia and supported the church, the "Angel Meal" program, and the Pavia Veterans Association. She was a long-time employee at the Department of Agriculture, Fort Detrick, Md. where she made and kept many life long friends. Doris was a loving, kind, and gentle soul so full of faith and grace.
