In 1964, Doris received a degree in math and physics from St Rose College in Albany. When her family moved to California in 1978, Doris transferred to the Los Angeles Province where she taught at St Bernard’s and St Mary’s Academy. She was a woman dedicated to the Congregation and adjusted easily to transferring to the Los Angeles Province after 29 years of teaching in New York.
