After marrying, she relocated to Los Angeles where her first daughter, Lana, was born. A few years later, the family moved to Cape Cod, MA where Lyn was born. Doris was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 29. Though she endured a lot throughout the years, she never once allowed her diagnosis to slow her down. Doris was fortunate to meet her companion Roger while living on Cape Cod. Doris and Roger enjoyed fishing together and taking regular trips to Florida throughout the years. She loved to travel and was always ready to go. She parasailed and ziplined at the age of 80, she was an amazing woman. Doris was a mother to many. She had a great love for all of her animals. She enjoyed shopping, keeping up with the latest fashions, and getting her nails done.
