She worked as a beautician before residing at home to take care of her children and be a homemaker. She also served with her husband in ministry as a pastor’s wife and served Jones Backhoe and Dump Truck Service as self-titled “CEO” for 30 years. Doris loved her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family, church family, and friends greatly. She was caring and a very lovable woman.

She loved to cook (she made the best homemade buttermilk waffles), have long phone calls, be with her family, attend church, and go on trips with Susan and visit Dean at his Lake house. She enjoyed sitting on the back porch at his lake house and enjoyed the view of the lake and his company.
