Doris had many interests and pastimes. She was proud to say she was a member of the Lafayette Missionary Baptist Church in Lafayette, Ohio. She constantly bragged about her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

Her pastimes were varied. She and her husband enjoyed camping. She thoroughly enjoyed shopping, collecting dolls, sewing, and quilting. Many of her quilts were given to family members and friends. In the 1950’s she and her husband began jitter-bugging, which became one of her favorite activities.
