She worked in the kitchen at church for several years until she retired. Doris was known for her homemade cinnamon rolls and would continue to make them until her health prevented her from doing very much cooking. She loved to eat out at fast food places, with Wendy’s, Taco Villa and Dairy Queen as her favorites. Doris had a sweet tooth loved her chocolate candy, especially from See’s. Her children would try to keep her supplied with her junk food.
