     Doris joined the Caldwell First Methodist Church in 1937, and was very active in the church, working with children and youth groups and serving on many of the church boards and agencies.  She was prominent in the Methodist Women's organization, holding several offices including two times as president from 1947-1951 and 1974-1976.  She was instrumental in organizing the Caldwell Interdenominational Study Group in January of 1952.  In 1958 she helped organize and was elected the first president of Caldwell's United Church Women (now Church Women United).  She also served as the Idaho state president and on the National Board of Church Women United.  In 1968 she was honored with Special Mission Recognition for her interest and service in missions.  This group offered studies of mission work throughout the world.  In 1986, Doris was honored as a Valiant Woman by the National CWU.  She was also a member and Post Noble Grand of the Gem of the Mountains Rebekah Lodge #3.
