She was an independent woman with a passion for red wine, baking, and everything chocolate. It was in the kitchen where she spent much of her time. She was known for her desserts, homemade chocolates, and her famous German Chocolate Cake. Her time away from the kitchen was spent with her family, her cats, reading a good book or magazine, feeding the birds, or watching The Ohio State Buckeyes.

Those who called her grandma will remember her for feeding the alligators, licking the beaters from the mixer, hiding the good crayons above the cabinet, special birthday cakes, homemade ice cream, and keeping the good drinks in the fridge outside.

Special thanks to the staff at Brookdale of Kettering and The Preserve at Beavercreek.

Funeral services will be held graveside, at Abbottsville Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Doris'

memory to Alzheimer's Association Miami Valley Chapter or Hospice of Dayton.
