Published in Fort Worth Star-Telegram on 5/10/2009 in part:

Doray always had a flair for the dramatic. She loved the ballet, Shakespeare and classical music. She aspired to be on stage and auditioned in New York City before her parents decided to move her to Houston, where she modeled, acted and married. Doray had an inquisitive nature and was surrounded by her many dictionaries. She worked for 23 years in medical records at the Federal Bureau of Prisons FCI in Fort Worth. Doray's love of animals extended to her two Salukis, Tuvara and Charity. She was a highly respected breeder with several show and field champions.
