Doris graduated from North Emery High School in Huntington. She continued her undergraduate education at College of Southern Utah (now Southern Utah University, SUU).

Doris taught junior high school in the Salt Lake City and Granite school districts. She began her collegiate teaching at Idaho State University, then finished at Southern Utah University. She taught for a total of 41 years plus many summers, retiring in 2002.

Doris received many awards related to her teaching and community service. She was most proud of receiving the SUU Distinguished Educator Award, Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Educator Award and Western Business and Information Technology Education (WBITE) Outstanding Post-Secondary Educator Award. She was president of the SUU Faculty Senate and served on the emeriti board (in charge of the newsletter) after she retired.

Dedicated to what would help her students, Doris was committed to the Professional Business Leaders (PBL) and actively supported their work for decades.

A devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she was a member of the 10th LDS Ward. She was responsible for the weekly ward bulletin for over 10 years. Doris held many church callings in the Young Women, Sunday School, and Relief Society.

Skilled at handicrafts, she could sew, quilt, knit and was clever at seasonal decorating, both at home, in church, and at work.

She knitted 180 caps for the Relief Society and their humanitarian distribution wherever they were needed. She won a sweepstakes prize at the Iron County Fair for a bedroom ensemble she quilted.

She quietly contributed to many projects for the development of young people. She loved SUU sports, contributing to various athletic teams, especially to women's gymnastics.

Doris strongly supported any efforts for the development of students, particularly those in business education. She ultimately established an endowment fund to ensure that financial help would be available to those in need.

A loving pet owner, she always had dogs. She was especially fond of her poodles, Shadow, Brandy and Muffin, and recently, her pomeranian, Toby.

Doris loved her mother very much and was extremely devoted to her. She was her caregiver during the last several years. Her mother recently passed away at the age of 90. Her father also preceded her in death.
