She was united in marriage to Richard "Dick" Condon on May 11, 1957, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Osage. Doris was a loving wife and moved with her husband to the Iowa cities of Maquoketa, Decorah and Ottumwa, Bismarck, North Dakota, Pierre, South Dakota, and Lakewood, Colorado, even though a big part of her always stayed home on the family farm. After Dick retired from the Federal Highway Administration, they moved to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands for two years. After their return to the states, they spent their summers on the family farm in Orchard and winters in Chandler, Arizona. In 2014, Dick and Doris moved to Valley Center, California. Doris was a homemaker and devoted mother. She volunteered and was president of the Pierre Hospital Auxiliary. Doris was always active in her children's lives, whether it was as their Girl Scout Leader, room mom or transportation provider to various sports and musical events, she was always in attendance. In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Doris was a committed shopper, always hunting for the best deals, no matter where life took her. Her smiling face and happy disposition will be missed by all that loved her.
