Doris was a caring, nurturing person who cared for many children during her 30 years as a daycare provider. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Doris looked forward to spending nights on her porch visiting with friends and neighbors. Doris loved playing games and anyone who knew her fell victim to her competitive nature.
