Doris served proudly as an Air Force wife for over 30 years. She loved spending time with her family, esp. her husband, children, and grandchildren. Anyone that knew her knew that she loved to go bowling, to Cripple Creek, and rooting for the Denver Broncos. She worked with children most of her adult life in daycare centers and even had one in her home. She will be remembered as a great friend, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
