She also worked on the election board for many years and participated in other civic organizations. She was active in PTA, serving at the local, district and state level. She served as a Cub Scout and Girl Scout leader.
Doris enjoyed being outside, planting flowers and feeding the birds. She was an avid Husker football fan and collected Husker memorabilia. She loved the holidays and delivered trays of Christmas cookies to all her friends. She loved spending time with family and enjoyed watching her great-grandbabies grow and play.
