She married World War II veteran Percy Denis Ouellette on April 22, 1946, who passed away in 2015 after 69 years of marriage.

Doris learned to sing by listening to the electric piano tune and from words written beside each note being played. Her love for music remained and Doris was in chorus all through Jay Grammar School and High School and St. Rose Catholic Church.

In 1995, she served as secretary for five years for the Jay-Livermore Falls Senior Citizens and was chairman three years for the American Heart Association. She was also an American Cancer Society volunteer. In later years, her hobby was raising African violets and playing the Skip-Bo card game.
