Doris is well known for her many acts of kindness. She started the first food bank in the ’70’s out of her front yard every Saturday for many years giving out to the many people in need. Doris was very passionate about her crafts, knitting, painting, needle work and Tri-chem. She always gave away more than she ever sold. Doris loved the Lord and was passionate about her faith and would share with anybody who would listen. She was a mentor to her family, friends, and many.
