Doris was born August 8, 1920, in the Flowery Branch community of Hall County, to Millard Williams and Bonnie Stovall Williams. The family moved to the Coal Mountain community when Doris was a child, and she would spend the majority of her life there on Spot Road. In 1942 she married Harvey Graham of Townville, S.C., but just six years into their marriage would become a widow with two young daughters. Hardworking and devoted to her children, Doris would go on to raise the girls to adulthood as a single mother.

In 1980, Doris married childhood friend Doyle Terry and until his death in 1998, they enjoyed traveling all over the U.S. and abroad. Doris loved her family and friends.
