Doris was a member of the Elks Club, the VFW and the Eagles Club. She enjoyed cooking, riding her motorcycle, her snowmobile, and her four wheeler. Doris was also a hunter, and in 2006, she was successful in shooting a moose. But her favorite pastime was spending time with her family.
Survivors besides her husband include; one daughter, Christy Bigart and her companion Steven Gore of Bennington. Her step-son Carson Lemieux of Boston, MA. Two grandchildren whom she adored and cherished; Zava Ann Gore and Zaric Todd Gore, both of Bennington.
