Doris held many positions during her working years which included working at Wayne Memorial Hospital with Dr. Propst in the Emergency Room. She later worked at Chroma Tube for many years. Doris retired in 1986 from Wayne Highlands School District where she was the fist woman custodian. She loved working in the school and enjoyed being around the students.

A talented cook and baker, she was well known for her famous apple pies that she would bake in bulk for family and friends. In recent years, Doris enjoyed volunteering at the Wayne County Area on Aging where she was able to spend time with friends and help others.
