Doris was born in Harmony, on August 30, 1915, to Herman and Clara Serfling. Doris and her twin brother, Donald, attended school at the Daisy Valley School in rural Harmony where her aunt was the teacher. Then she worked as domestic help in the Preston area for several years.

In 1986, she moved to the Shady Knoll Residence in Grantsburg, MN until 1991 when she joined her daughter’s family on a farm near Cushing, MN.
