Doris had a lovely personality. She was very outgoing and never knew a stranger. She loved to laugh, even if that meant at herself. She never missed an episode of Wheel of Fortune. She enjoyed traveling. She traveled the United States in great depths as well as around the world to places such as Greece, Italy, Ireland, France and Russia to name a few. Doris was a woman of faith. She taught religion at St. Norbert in Florissant before becoming an active member of Immaculate Conception Dardenne Church. One of her favorite places to visit was her Country Cabin at a place called Paydown Rod and Gun Club along the Gasconade River. Above all, she lived for her family. She cherished every one of them. She found such pride and joy in her grandchildren. Doris will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all who knew her.
