Doris was a homemaker who groomed poodles out of her home-based shop for 25 years. She loved her family, ball room dancing, traveling the world, and her many pets over the years.
Surviving in addition to her husband are three children: David F. Hoffman, husband of Helene E. Hoffman of Elizabethtown; Michael L. Hoffman, husband of Cynthia Hoffman of Akron; and Barbara A. Hoffmann, wife of Eric J. Hoffmann of Ephrata; three grandchildren: Lori M. Hunter, Barbara A. Murphy and Jason M. Long; and three great-grandchildren. Doris was predeceased by her only sister Carol Tallar of Wisconsin and grandsons Steven L. Long and Patrick M. Hoffman.
