She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Erma Fehr and brothers, Dean and Dale Janssen.
Doris was a member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ. She was a homemaker and loved to bake and was known for her pies and cookies. She was a gardener and to the very end, she loved garden fresh vegetables. There were few things she enjoyed more than a sun ripened grown central Illinois tomato, a hamburger with a thick slice of onion, and a bouquet of gladiolas.
Doris was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She will be deeply missed.
The family wishes to thank all the nurses and staff at Heritage Manor for the excellent care that was given to their mother. She loved her nurses.
