Doris was born in Manchester on July 6, 1925 to Harry and Florence (Fournier) Riley. She was raised and educated in Bedford and married Hubert F. O'Toole at St. Raphael Church in 1947. Doris spent most of her life as a homemaker lovingly caring for her family.

She was also a lifetime member of the American Legion Women's Auxiliary, Past President of the Women's Auxiliary, and a member of Forty & Eight for over fifty years. During her life she was a parishioner of St. Raphael's and St. Elizabeth Seton.
