Doris was a major role in the Indiana District of Kiwanis International. She was the rock that held it together. We will miss her and all that she did for Kiwanis.

I loved Doris and was glad to know her for the short time I knew her. She was the first person to show me how to wrap the silverware at Occasions. She was a good person with a big heart. She laughed a lot. I know she is missed. I am sorry for your loss

Much Love,
