She was always very small for her age with blonde almost white hair and the boys loved her., Doris continued thru the 9th grade and only missed one day in all her years of school. High school at Hartwell was good in the 10th and she started in the 11th but quit shortly after to marry her one and only real boyfriend, James Hubert Moorhead on September 24th, 1938. She was 15 and he was 18, Hubert and his father were cotton farmers but his father died and the newlyweds moved in the house with his mother. In 1940 they decided that Doris would get a job at a new company in Hartwell sewing. She was only 17 and you had to be 18 to be employed so Doris told a little white lie so she would get hired, On September 11,1943 a son was born to Doris and Hubert.

Doris missed her sweetheart but as in years past was such a strong, loving Christian woman whos answer to any situation was Lets just pray about it Remarkable is a great word to describe her life, In 1998 she was hired by Wal-Mart as a greeter after the closing of the sewing plant. In 2008 she retired but still enjoyed life with a fun spirit and hearty laugh.
All three of her granddaughters married and built a house on land she and Pop gave them. She loved helping out with her great grands. Who made the Moorhead clan grow even more.
Deedra Osborne, Noah Osborne, Brittany Peeples, Bryson Peeples, T.J. Lovelace, Toby Lovelace and Kalen Fleming were of great joy to her.
