Upon retirement, she devoted herself to caring for her father, showcasing her nurturing nature.

Her affection extended to Braden's loyal companion, Kevin Brown, with whom she shared a deep bond of mutual care and companionship. Dorislea was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
