Always cheerful and involved, Doris kept up with her passion for learning by participating in lifelong learning classes and various lectures. She enjoyed volunteering in school and in the community, playing bridge, water aerobics, managing her family’s investments and being with friends. Doris was currently a member of Denbigh United Presbyterian Church in Newport News.
