Doris loved reading, blueberries & double cream and tracing her ancestors back to Canada and France. She loved all kinds of music from Big Band to Country and wrote a song at 13 for neighbor and singer Irene Daye called The Weekend Blues; but her favorite song was Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Doris loved to travel to many countries in Europe and across Canada as much as a ride to Wells Beach, ME for a lobster roll and going to Little Island Pond for a boat ride; but her favorite trip was to Hawaii for her 80th birthday.

She was predeceased by her husband, Leo Walsh, an infant son Joseph, as well as her parents and three siblings: Rita, Edward and Thelma.
