Doris Marie Cameron was born on November 4, 1931, in Wilmot, to Alfred and Rosa (Gubka) Nielsen.

On October 20, 1950, Doris was united in marriage with Kenneth Charles Cameron in Wilmot. To this union, they had four children.
Primarily a homemaker, Doris enjoyed raising her family but also spent time with her brother, Jim, operating a wood-staining, painting, and papering business in Minnesota and South Dakota. She was a spectacular cook and was famous for her homemade buns and cookies. Doris enjoyed nurturing her flower gardens, sewing for her grandchildren and others in the community, and oil painting. She had a beautiful singing voice and was honored to share this gift with others. Most important to Doris was her family and she cherished every moment spent as a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Doris was an active member of the Zion Community Church in Wilmot.
