She was united in marriage to Ted Quick on June 12, 1955, at the First Baptist Church of Keytesville. In the years between high school and becoming a mother, Doris remembered with pride, a working career at Wahlbrink Implement and the University of Missouri Extension Office, both in Keytesville. In her early adult years, she enjoyed bridge club and square dancing. Watching basketball and golf were two of her favorite past times. She was an avid cook, loved baking and candy making. Above all, Doris’ true passions were her family and her faith. Doris hosted family events multiple times per year. She shared 65 years of marriage with her husband Ted.
