Doris and her sister Jean were always among my favorite cousins. Doris was always full of the kind of energy that was inspiring. She made the times when you could get together a special occasion. Her spirit reflected by the numerous locations where she taught and visited always made her an exceptionally interesting and informed member of the family. Whenever we would get together she would make you feel like you were the only person in the room. She was an excellent teacher being the kind that the profession needs more of. Doris will be missed however she is now in good company that I'm sure will appreciate her as much as we have. My condolences to the family and her friends.
