Doris was employed at the Charles City Community Schools in food service for 27 years. She carried the joy of baking over to her home, where she baked breads, Christmas candy, desserts and loved to look at cookbooks.

Doris and Don enjoyed playing 500 in various card clubs from 1959 to 2009. Her next favorite thing was traveling to country music festivals throughout the Midwest. Texas winter music festivals were a favorite activity for many years where Doris managed the merchandise table for Terry Smith and met many country music friends.
