Doris was a lifetime resident of Columbia, Tennessee. After she finished school she married the love of her life Thomas Malugin March 29, 1950, before he went overseas during the Korean War. Doris worked for many years at Tennessee Knitting Mills and retired from Maury Manufacturing. After retiring Doris volunteered for over 20 years at Maury Regional Medical Center.

She is deeply loved and will be dearly missed.
