Doris was born October 9, 1933, in Springfield, Minnesota to Alfred and Esther (Wendt) Renner. They lived on the family farm in Springfield until Doris was 7 years old. The family then moved to a farm in Brunswick, Minnesota. Doris attended Lewis Lake Country School near Brunswick until the family moved to a farm north of Ann Lake where she attended Riverside Country School. She attended Ogilvie High School for approximately two years. At age 16, she moved to the Twin Cities for employment as a nanny and housekeeper.
