Doris was a 1942 graduate of Esbon High School, upon graduation she started teaching in a one room county school after she passed a state required test. This was during WWII and there were not enough teachers to supply the demand. She taught two years in the one room school house and then moved to a small town elementary school where she taught for four more years. It was here she met her husband, Charles who was just starting to teach after returning to the states after serving in WWII. Doris graduated from Huntington College Mag-Cum-Laude with a BS degree in physical education and biology.
