Doris was born in Newburyport on October 4, 1932, a twin.
She was the daughter of the late Frank W. and Anna (Pomerleau) Dumont and stepdaughter of the late Marie Anne Grenier Dumont.
Doris’ love of travel drew her to the airline industry. She started with American Airlines in 1956 in New York. Doris was hired by Dean J.

Students came from Nigeria, Japan, and Scandinavia to train with Doris and eventually return to their home countries to open their own travel businesses.
She retired from the industry with Scandinavian Airlines in Boston in 1988. After retiring from the the airline industry, Doris worked for Boston Financial Data Service in Quincy and in 1999 she returned to Newburyport and worked briefly for Lombardi Oil and Alden Merrell Cheesecake Company.
Doris filled her free time with her passions of ballroom dancing, mahjong, playing piano and having conversations with friends in her French/Canadian dialect. Doris loved spending time with her family and organizing family get togethers.
She is survived by her sisters, Evelyn Jamrog, Annette Simmons, Louise Mason, and Michelle Racioppi all of Newburyport, MA; as well as several nieces and nephews.
