Active in the Model T world, Red restored them while Doris sewed elaborate time-appropriate costumes for countless parades across the country. After Red's death, Doris moved to Albuquerque near Deanna, Jim & his family. Active & even driving until a week before she passed, her life was full with family, church & serving others at the Storehouse charity.
