Doris was a hard worker who enjoyed indoor gardening and gatherings of her family and friends.  Doris and her first husband, Ray, operated Hudson's Pavilion on the Isle of  Palms for eight years.  Hudson's was "home-away-from-home" for many young submariners and Navy personnel.  During the winter months, Hudson's was a gathering place for Doris and Ray's friends, where they enjoyed holiday parties and get-togethers.  Doris and Ray also owned and operated Buccaneer Cottages on the Isle of Palms.  In the later years, the Cottages became known as "Swainland."   Doris and Ray were married for twenty-five years until Ray's death in February 1979.

In 1981 Doris wed Lawrence "Mike" Hazen.  Together they enjoyed sailing, traveling, and Mike's children, Doris' step-children Lawrence Michael Hazen of Brandon, MS and Lynn Michelle Harrison of Summerville, SC.  Doris and Mike were married for twenty-five years, until his death in October 2006.
