She lived in Limestone County most of her life and was a graduate of Coolidge High School. Doris began her working career at the Forest Glade School, after it closed; she transferred to the Mexia ISD Food Service Department where she retired after many years of devoted service. Doris had an outgoing personality and loved being around people. She enjoyed going out to eat, playing 42, reading, embroidering, cross stitching and traveling; made several trips to Branson, one to New Jersey to visit great-grandchildren, as well as other places of interest. Some of her favorite time was spent fellowshipping with her friends at the Mexia Senior Citizens Center. Her love and obsession of mowing her yard caused enough concern for her children to hide the lawn mower keys, in recent years. Doris life was filled with her love for the Lord and family. She loved family gatherings, especially during the holiday seasons. She was a charter member of Forest Glade Baptist Church as well as a very active member; she taught Sunday school for numerous years and was a member of the choir. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Felix Ghip Freeman (1999); and brothers, James Marshall and Roy O'Conner Brooks.

Keys and wife, Elizabeth of Waxahachie, Brad Freeman of Groesbeck and Clay Freeman of Mexia; six great-grandchildren; and numerous friends.
