DORIS MAE BRENDEL DANEKER
BORN JULY 2,1929
AT SOUTH BALTIMORE HOSPITAL

Doris' sister Margaret said "it was the hotest day of the year" 1929. It is the dead
center of the calander year. Look it up!

She lived on Light Street just South of Fort Avenue until she graduated from High
School and the family moved to Gelston Drive in West Baltimore.

At Southern, Doris (Known as "D B" on Betty Davis) participated in many school
activities, such as Yearbook Staff, Courier (News Paper) Staff, School Plays, and
the Glee Club. Out side of school she was active in her Methodist church and it's
youth fellowship. Through this group she became active in the conference MYF.
Being active in the MYF Doris met and dated several young men, one became
serious until he desided to become a Methodist Minister, then she broke off the
engagement. After she was no longer engaged we meet at a week-end retreat in
August and started dating in October. It became serious around December 1950.
We were married in October 1951. I went into the service in October and was sent
to Hawaii for basic training.

After graduation she entered the working world taking a job with the City of
Baltimore's Department of Education as a secretary in elementry school. Two of her
schools were in the inner city, Number 1 and Number 10. She worked for the
Department of Education until she married and started a family.

For the next few years Doris became a stay at home "Housewife" had a second
daughter and bought a House, until 1959. In 1959, George started in Night School
at the Collage of Commerce. Doris got a job at First National Bank on the night
shift working in the proof and lock box department. During this time, Doris' father
came to live with us. This caused the house to become too small for "five" there.
We needed more space so we built a house in Timonium. After moving to
Timonium, Doris was able to get a day job and was moved by FNB to a teller
posiition in the Towson office. After training she was placed in the drive-in on
York Road, where she contiued her employment until Dan was born in 1964. Then,
back to a housewife. By this time George had started working for Loyola Federal
S&L, completing his degree 1968

Around this time, George joined the Boumi Shrine, Doris and George started
making new friends and having a social life, going to dances and dinners with friends
and neighbors.

George, because of his position at Toyota, started attending national conferences
in Miami, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, etc. with the Financial Managers
Society. Family vacations were trips to O.C., Virginia and other places close to
home.

In 1973, we took a trip to Switzerland with Boumi Shrine. This trip started our
foreign traveling. For Doris, it was an Island or it was a destination for vacation.
We visited: Ireland, Britland, Scotland, the Chanel Islands, the Canary Islands to
mention a few. During this time, Doris joined a group neighborhood women
writing a history of the "Limestone Valley" for the Maryland Bicentennial
Commission to celebrate the Nation's 200'th birthday.

Doris became interested in the travel business and found a job in an agency to
learn the business. After twenty years, she retired as an agent at "Welcome Aboard
Travel" in Timonium. During her years with the agency, she continued to travel and
found that River Crusing was her favorite form of travel and seeing the countries.

After retiring Doris continued to travel but closer to home. She became more
interested in the life of Thomas Jefferson and his home and retreat in Virginia.
