Doris was a homemaker who did everything she could do to take care of her family. She spent her spare time watching her kids play sports and working the concession stand many times. She enjoyed taking trips to Ocean City during the summer. Later in life, Doris and her husband served as Camp Host at New Germany State Park for many years. Doris also particularly enjoyed going to Westernport almost every day with her friend Kay and sister Marie to have lunch. She never missed a chance to take care of her grandchildren and loved spoiling them by taking them to get something at the Dollar Store.
