After graduating from high school, Doris graduated from Bloomsburg State Teachers College. She began her teaching career in Halifax, PA in a one room schoolhouse. In 1940, she and her husband Cy moved to Penns Grove to work for Endicott Johnson Shoe Store. As her two girls, Charlotte and Betsy, got older she decided it was time to go back to teaching. She started at West Harmony as a substitute but soon there after was hired full time. She began teaching first grade at Field Street in 1956 and would be there for the next twenty plus years. While she was teaching at Field Street, she graduated from Glassboro State having earned her N.J. credentials. She was a member of the N.J. Education Association and the N.J. Retired Educators. Big on volunteering, she helped out with the Brownies, Girl Scouts and was a member of the Keenagers. Over the years Doris was also a very active and devoted member of the Emmanuel UMC Church.
