Born in Salamanca, New York, Doris was a graduate of Olean High School. She met her husband, Lester, in Olean while he was playing professional baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers. After his playing career, Les and Doris moved to St. Louis, where they raised four children. A true stay-at-home mom, Doris loved spending time in her yard, talking with friends and neighbors, tending to her flowers, and birdwatching. She was most proud of her handsome husband and her family. She gave us much love. Her greatest joy was the time spent with her family and friends. We will miss her kindness, strength, warmth, giving, acceptance, and love for the rest of our lives.
Services: A funeral service and interment will be held on Monday, May 23 at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery at 10:15 a.m.
