She enjoyed listening to live music and entertainment, dancing with her husband and trips to the casino to play nickel Deuces Wild. Doris loved living in the Northwoods and her place on Round Lake watching the deer, loons, ducks and eagles. Doris was a devout Catholic and a faithful member of the St. Joseph Parish in Hayward.

She is survived by her children, Carol (David) Ackley of Hayward, WI and Tom (Pat) Wichert of Milwaukee, WI; four grandsons; six great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
