Doris Ann lived her life with inimitable style, expressed through her carefully chosen words and pictures, her signature quirky/funky attire, and her ever-present bright red "Lady Danger" lipstick. She painted that sparkle and color everywhere she went. and she wanted to go everywhere!

An adventurer from childhood, Doris Ann started out as a young gymnast and diver; she continued her lifelong adventures with her best friend and partner of 49+ years, husband Aaron. Her 2006 metastatic breast cancer diagnosis didn't slow her down; in recent years, she traveled to Portugal with Aaron, attended a Breast Cancer walk in Israel, and was honored with the National Patient Advocate Courage and Dedication Award in 2016.

Among her numerous professional achievements, Doris Ann was most proud to be a patient advocate and METAvivor Board Member. A talented writer and artist, Doris Ann seized every opportunity to "let her freak flag fly," encouraging others to embrace and to savor their own individual strengths.

Most of all, Doris Ann was a beloved and irreplaceable wife, mother, and friend. She is survived by her devoted husband Aaron and her children, Roger and Sharon.

In honor of her work and wishes, the family requests donations in lieu of flowers to METAvivor, the metastatic breast cancer organization she served and cherished.

Her funeral is 11am Sunday, May 7, 2017, at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home on Millbrook Road.
