Doris was the daughter of a dairyman. She grew up riding horses and studying dance in the small town of Bradford. Her dance took her to New York one summer as a young girl to pursue studies in modern dance. She then attended Penn State where she became one of the first female cheerleaders as a result of the all male squad enlisting in the military during World War II. She graduated from college with a degree in Chemistry. Her career included jobs with Seagram's in Baltimore and Eli Lilly in Indianapolis. Her career was put aside after marriage and the beginnings of a family. She was the touchstone of the family. She will be missed by all.
