She also has one brother, Paul (Jean) Mast, one sister-in-law, Pat Mast, both of Champaign, and several nieces and nephews.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents; mother- and father-in-law; husband, Walter G. Boring; one brother, Neal Mast; one great-granddaughter, Samantha Konopa; and sister-in-law, Agnes Boring, with whom she was very close.
