She attended Clarks Chapel Primary School and graduated from Bel Air High School. After high school, Doris married Willard (Bus) Cevis and had 6 children. Doris was an entrepreneur, housewife and babysitter. A multi-tasker, Doris managed the Cevis Diner while being a housewife and babysitter.

After raising her children, Doris later became employed by the State of Maryland as a toll collector and retired after working over 30 years. An avid world traveler, Doris visited Paris, Belgium, Germany, Hawaii, and Barbados. A compassionate, lovable and quiet spirit, she became the peacemaker between her younger siblings. According to her grandchildren, she was the kindest and most genuine person. She had a gentle and meek spirit and was very protective of family and friends.

One of her favorite pastimes was sitting on her back deck listening to the radio station 95.9.
