Born to Charles Perkins and Freda Johnson - when she was 6 months old her mother died and her father took her older brother Milo Perkins and moved to Lansing, leaving Doris with the neighbors, George and Anna Buskirk Colson.
Her birthdate is not verified as the birth records burned. When she applied for Social Security she had to jump through hoops to prove she even existed due to this.
