The family moved several times over the next few years to posts where her father was stationed with the U.S. Army during WWII. She attended school in Georgia and California and finally back to St. Paul, Minnesota. The family then returned to Luverne and Doris graduated from Luverne High School in 1949. She received her 2 year degree from Worthington Jr. College in 1951 and moved to California where she received a BA degree from Sacramento State College in 1959. Doris trained as a vocational nurse and worked in various medical practices before beginning her career with the County of Sacramento as a clerical worker and computer operator. She retired in 1985 and returned to Luverne in 1990. In December 2018, Doris moved into Poplar Creek assisted living facility.
