Doris graduated from Crosby High School in 1940 and went on to Kennebec Valley Vocational and Tech Institute for her CNA diploma in 1976. She also was a member of “The National Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry” for more than 25 continuous years.

She assisted her husband in one of largest poultry farms in Maine for 30, plus a few, years along with being a Waldo County Deputy and was very proud to be tax collector for the town of Morrill.

She was predeceased by her loving husband of 77 years, Howard Herbert, her high school sweetheart; by son Danny Herbert; brother Arthur Blood; and sisters Barbara Symes and Iva Jackson.

Surviving are her son Dennis Herbert; her sister Florence Bidder; and her grandchildren, Scott Herbert, Stephen Herbert, Joshua Herbert and Roseanna Herbert; many great-grandchildren and great-great-children.
