Doris Maxine Krenos, age 80, of Yankton, passed away November 25, 2016 at Avera Sister James Care Center, Yankton, South Dakota.

Doris was born May 31, 1936 to C. Melvin Anderson and Clara (Loe) Anderson, the eleventh of twelve children. She lived in Hudson, Lennox and Canton with her family, and graduated from Canton High School.

Doris married Donald Angelo Krenos on May 27, 1956 in Sioux Falls, was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, and a resident of Yankton since 1964.

Although Doris concentrated on raising her children, as they got older she held various jobs in Yankton, and was a member of the American Legion Women's Auxiliary and the VFW Women's Auxiliary, all of which she loved. She also enjoyed visiting with family and friends, gardening, and listening to music. She devoted her life to caring for her family; and she adored and cherished her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Doris is survived by her six children, Cheryl (Paul) Mackrell of Green River, Wyoming; Karen Peterson of Normal, Illinois; Cyndee Krenos (Steven Kasper) of Cedar, Minnesota; Kevin (Rhonda) Krenos of Chaska, Minnesota; Kristi Krenos of Green River, Wyoming; Cathy Wilber of Edmond, Oklahoma; sister Nila (George "Bob") Krenos of Marinette, Wisconsin; her twin sister Delores (Robert) Gwinn of Yankton, South Dakota; six grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents, husband, five brothers, and four sisters.

A private memorial service will be held at the Opsahl-Kostel Funeral Home in Yankton.
