Doris was born in Yonkers, NY, to John and Mary Hvisch. After graduating from a Catholic boarding school, she pursued a career as a stenographer in the Empire State Building. Inspired by her love for the west, she moved to San Francisco with a friend and started work for Time Magazine before working as a clerk for the Department of Forestry, Goose Valley Station. Doris first met Syd Neuhausen at a party in Ramona. The two fell in love and married on March 19, 1950, then settled in Ramona, where they started a family. Doris remained in Ramona with her husband, Syd and their three children for the rest of her life.Doris was a gentle spirit, always loved by animals for her kind nature. She was a wonderful botanist with a passion for nurturing plants, many that she started by "slips." Local artists would sometimes ask permission to take photos of her flowers to use as inspiration for their paintings.Doris is preceded in death by her parents; and husband, Syd. She is survived by her brother, John Hvisch, Yonkers, NY; children, Melody Neuhausen, Kit Neuhausen and Diana Van Zandt; and her husband Don Van Zandt; all of her grandchildren, Donny Van Zandt (Annie), Justin Van Zandt (Gena) and Afton Van Zandt (Cameron).
