Doris was born August 1, 1935 on the family farm in Foster, Missouri, the daughter of Leslie and Beulah Creveling Blevins. She was born and raised on the Sand Hill Farm which was owned by her parents. She received her primary education at a country school near her home, and later attended Hume High School, a graduate of the class of 1953. After graduation she worked at the Ours Oil Company in Butler and later at Levy’s. On March 8, 1959, Doris was united in marriage with Clifford Junior Wood. Together they raised two daughters on the family farm, Connie Sue and Peggy Jo. Doris preferred to be outdoors and especially enjoyed caring for her animals. She had a special fondness for tending to the Herferd cattle and spoiling her cats and dogs. Although she did not look upon them fondly,

Doris was also known to pick up an armadillo by the tail on occasion. Other outdoor labors Doris enjoyed include growing a vegetable garden, raising fruit trees, and maintaining her flower garden. Doris’ day could always be brightened when her family indulged her insatiable love for sweet treats, especially chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate covered cherries.

Survivors include daughter Connie Sue Board (Larry), son in law David Foster, grandchildren Lori Robbins (George), Ashley Arwood, Andrew Entrikin (Andi), Alec Entrikin, and Kelli Beth Alcantara (Jeremy), great grandchildren Brihanna, Wayne Dale, Brooklynn, Keigan, Alli, Glen, Susie, Emma, Alecsus, Madi, Jameson, and Lani.
