Frank Anglin (1271) and Minnie had four children, Donald (12711), a bachelor, who was in the family business; Helen (12712) who married Jack Davidson, a chartered accountant, and for a time lived in Toronto, then for some years was located in Galt with a family of two; Jean (127121) who is married and has two children, and Donald (127122).
Marion Anglin (12713), the third child of Frank and Minnie, has not married. After receiving her degree from Queen's in 1928 she trained as a teacher and taught for a short time at Cobalt H.S. She then took further training first as a social worker, then as a librarian and, for many years, she was librarian in the Mountain Branch in Hamilton.
Arthur Anglin (12714), the youngest, graduated from Queen's in mechanical engineering in 1933 and married Elizabeth Wales. Arthur, upon graduation joined the B.A. Oil Company in Toronto, working in its marketing and research and development departments. Prior to his retirement in 1975 he was active as a consultant on fuel and lubrication matters.
He returned to Kingston following his retirement and in 1979 assumed the presidency of the S. Anglin Company.
Arthur died of a heart attack in 1986 while visiting his daughter, Susan, in Europe.
Gertrude (1272) and John Anderson had one son, Sam (12721), with whom she lived until her death in 1957. Young Sam married Grace J. Embury, a 1934 nursing graduate of Kingston General Hospital, in 1942 and they had five children, two boys and three girls, living in Kingston.
Grace Embury circa 1934
Sam was a real estate agent in Kingston following his retirement in 1971 from Du Pont of Canada where he had been employed for 29 years. He was a president of the Du Pont Credit Union and the Kingston Credit Union Chapter. In addition, he was chairman of the Barbara Heck Foundation, a member of the United Church Presbytery, the Canoeing Association and the Field Naturalists.

The two older boys of Eveline and Allan Findlay, William Findlay (12751) and Francis Findlay (12752) born in 1911 and 1913, respectively, did not marry. The third, John Findlay(12753), was a doctor practising in Brandon. He was born in 1915, married Ethel Kathleen Haywood in 1940 and they had four children. The fourth, Samuel Findlay (12754) born in 1917, entered the ministry, married Mary Evelyn Whitby in 1946 and had a daughter and a son. The fifth, Allan Calder Findlay (12755), born 1919, married, 1949, Margaret Louise McPherson and they also raised four children.
The oldest child of Frances and Russell Wilson, Margaret Wilson (12761), born in 1905, attended McGill University. In 1931 she married Arthur E. Stack, a graduate of Dartmouth College, Class of 1926, and moved to Washington, DC. Arthur, an engineer, headed the creative labs of the Washington Gas Light Company for his entire career. Upon the death of President John F. Kennedy in 1963, he was called upon by the White House to quickly install a temporary gas flame, later to be made permanent, at Arlington National Cemetary. Margaret, like her mother, Fanny, became a Kindergarten teacher in Montgomery County, a suburb of Washington. Margaret earned another degree from the University of Maryland and saw all three of her children graduate from her Alma Mater. Following the family tradition, Margaret's youngest child, Melinda, earned an advanced degree and had fun for 30 years as an English and drama teacher. Melinda, in honour of her maternal grandmother, adopted the name Anglin as her professional surname and used it as a part of the surname of her twin sons, and one of them used it as part of the surname for his twin daughters. In order to honour both her Anglin heritage and her husband's Spanish heritage their children and grandchildren bear the formal surname "Anglin de los Casto" on any legal documents, although, for practical purposes and as a matter of convenience they use Anglin as their surname for everyday purposes. The older two Stack children, Arthur and Sandra, entrepreneurs both, had long careers -- Sandra (127612) as an innkeeper in Virginia, and Arthur (127611) as a furniture refinisher.
Charles Russell Wilson (12762), born in 1909, married Joan Leyland in 1939, and they had three children, born in '40, '44 and '49.

Charles Samuel Anglin and Gertrude Albright had three children. Harold Charles Anglin (12771) was born in 1911, graduated from Queen's in 1933, went into the S. Anglin Co. business with his father and was a tremendously civic-minded citizen. He was an elder in Sydenham St. United Church, and a member of the Masonic Order and The Shrine Club, in addition to the many contributions outlined below by The Kingston Whig Standard on the occasion of the establishment of a Kingston Business Hall of Fame in 2006. Harold was one of the inaugural inductees into the Hall, along with Harry Abramsky, Brit Smith, Phil Quattrochi, and Zal and Rose Yanovsky. A special supplement to the May 4, 2006 Kingston Whig Standard1 gave the following in its tribute to Harold's many contributions to Kingston's business community:
Harold Anglin1 (12771), 1911 - 1979
"Throughout his life, businessman Harold Anglin continuously contributed to the vibrancy of Kingston through his business efforts and tireless spirit.
"Harold joined the family business, S. Anglin Company Ltd., after graduating from Queen's University in 1933 with a bachelor's degree in archeology. He worked side by side with his father, sharing an office and growing the family business from what originally started out in 1865 as a lumber and building materials supply company to a large heating and industrial coal supply operation and carpentry shop.
"The company's lumberyard and mill offices were located at the foot of Bay and Wellington streets on the Cataraqui River in an area that was later named Anglin Bay. There, the firm received shipments of lumber and coal, and later, fuel oil.
S. Anglin Co., Ltd Lumberyard
and Millwork buildings1, circa 1950
"A few years after becoming involved in the business, Harold married Jean Taylor. Together the couple raised four children.
"After Charles retired, Harold was instrumental in the success of the business, which at the peak of its operation provided many jobs for Kingstonians.
"The big switch to oil from coal as the most acceptable heating fuel began in the early 1950s, and Harold led the company through this important change. The S. Anglin Company Ltd. became one of the largest oil and petroleum product suppliers in the region.
"Not only was Harold one of the most influential businessmen in the city, but he was also very active in the community. He had a keen interest in sports and was a member of many clubs and boards.
"'He helped to build Kingston. I just couldn't figure out how he had the time to do everything,' says Ron Anglin, Harold's son. 'Besides running the business and being a member in many organizations, he was also an avid golfer, swimmer, curler and played water polo.'
"Over the years, Harold served as president/chairman of the Cataraqui Golf and Country Cllub, the Kingston Ad and Sales Club, the Kingston District Chamber of Commerce, the Eastern Ontario Division of the Ontario Motor League, Kingston Kinsmen Club, Kingston Rotary Club, and the Kingston Curling Club. He also found time to sit on the board for the Kingston General Hospital and the Canadian National Institute of the Blind advisory board.
"Harold Anglin passed away in 1979 at the age of 67, but his name lives on as a leader who laid a solid business foundation in the city. After servicing the Kingston region for well over a century, the Anglin company was sold in 1997, but is still locally owned and operated under the name of TriHeat Anglin Energy Supply company."
Harold died suddenly on May 1, 1979 of a heart attack while swimming at the Kingston YM-YWCA.
Doris Gertrude Anglin (12772) was born in 1915, just as her parents were about to move into their newly built, beautiful brick home at 35 Wellington St in Kingston. Doris grew up in that home, completing her high school at Kingston Collegiate and then on to Queen's, graduating in 1937. A move to the University of Toronto led to a BA degree in Household Science, qualifying her to be a dietician. She interned at the Ottawa General Hospital and then took a Head Dietician position in the Pembroke Hospital, then to the same position in the Collingwood Hospital, and then Toronto Wellesley Hospital, followed by the Head Dietician position in the Toronto General Hospital. She retired in 1981 and, in 1986, like many Kingstonians, returned to Kingston for her retirement years. She was one of the first residents in The Barriefield, a condominium in Barriefield, just east of and above the Cataraqui River. She was a long-time supporter of the regular Anglin Family reunions, helping to provide snacks and treats for those who attended. A 2005 birthday party for her 90th birthday recognized her long life and many contributions to the welfare of patients in the hospitals in which she worked. As Doris required greater support services she moved from The Barriefield to Fairfield Manor, East retirement home in Kingston where she passed away on September 5, 2011.
Eileen (Anglin) Sinclair (12773)
Eileen Mabel Anglin (12773), the youngest child of Charles and Gertrude, was born in 1920, attended Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute and then graduated from Queen's in 1940. Following graduation she went to Kingston Business College then became a secretary to the Manager of the Royal Bank, followed by a secretary's job with Alcan. In 1943 she married Mac Sinclair, a graduate of RMC who later became a long-time employee of the Frontenac County Board of Education as the Superintendent of Business, retiring from the Board in 1986. At the 2005 gathering of the Clan Sinclair Association of Canada2, the clan's Medal of Service was awarded to Mac, who, at that time was the Clan's Honorary President.
Mac's biography, provided to those attending his funeral at Sydenham St United Church in Kingston on April 1, 2006, gave the following information about him:"Mac Sinclair passed peacefully away on March 29, 2006 at Kingston, having led a full and joyous life. While Mac had a busy and productive lifetime, family, friends and other people were most important to him.
"Mac was born in 1921 and raised in Tillsonburg, Ontario, the youngest of four children of high school teacher and athletics coach, Robert John Sinclair, and his wife, Isabella. During the Second World War, Mac entered the Class of 1940 at Royal Military College, graduating in two years when wartime service beckoned its Cadets. In 1994, he was honoured with the degree of Bachelor of Science (Military) from RMC, and served as President of the RMC Club, Kingston Branch. He served overseas in WWII, in the Aleutians, England, and Northwest Europe, and as a Major in the post-war Reserves.
"His graduation from RMC was surpassed by his falling in love with his soulmate and life partner, Eileen (nee Anglin). They were married in Sydenham Street United Church in 1943, and have participated fully in the Church's life most of their married life. Mac served as Chair of the congregation, Chair of Executive, Clerk of the Session, and Elder, and as a Sunday School teacher.
Mac Sinclair (12773), 1921 - 2006
"Following the War, he earned a Bachelor's degree in Commerce from Queen's University while raising his two elder children. In Mac's business life, mostly in Kingston, he held management positions with London and Confederation Life insurance companies. Latterly, Mac was Business Administrator and Secretary-Treasurer of the Frontenac County (now, Limestone District) Board of Education.
"Mac had an active retirement. He served as Newsletter Editor, President and de facto membership enroller, and then Life Honourary President of Clan Sinclair Association of Canada. In 2005 he was awarded the Clan's Medal of Service by the Earl of Caithness.
"Before Mac was challenged personally by his terminal battle with leukemia, he embraced a passion of his daughter, Nancy, who died tragically from cancer at age 39, becoming President of Hospice Kingston. He also served as Chair of the Angada Children's Hospital Committee of KGH and was a life member of St. John's Ambulance Association. Mac survived a stroke at age 71 by adapting to a new dominant hand and by teaching remedial reading to young students at Welborne Avenue Public School.
"Mac Sinclair is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Eileen, three children, six grandchildren, one great granddaughter, his sister Jean, and many other relatives and firends."
Eileen, after her job at Alcan, joined the S. Anglin Co. (the business begun by her grandfather, Samuel, in 1865) working in the Company's offices on Bay St. Following her father's death in 1964 she joined the Board of Directors of the Company and, in 1993 became the president of the Company, its seventh, and the first female in a line of Anglins to head the business.
She has been a lifetime member of Sydenham St. United Church, which her grandfather helped start, and in which her father was an elder and superintendent of the Sunday School and her mother taught Sunday School. In addition, she has been a very active volunteer: as an elder of the Church, a president of the Women's Missionary Society, on the Presbytery of the United Church Women, and on the board and president of the Sunnyside Children's Centre.
She was a member of the Board of Governors of the Ongwanada Resource Centre from 1975 and its President from 1988 to 1992. She remaiined on the Board following her presidency, receiving her 25-year service recognition pin in 2001 and retiring from the Board in 2005. As further recognition of her contribution to the organization she was made an Honorary Live Governor of the Board in 2008.
On Apri 13, 2010 a gathering of about 100 of Eileen's friends and relatives was held at the Cataraqui Golf and Curling Club in Kingston to recognize her 90th birthday. Among the celebrants bringing greetins were the Honourable Peter Milliken, member of parliament for Kingston and the Islands from 1988 and Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons from 2001, and Kingston and the Islands MPP since 1995 John Gerretsen who was, at that time, a cabinet minister in the Ontario Government.
Jennie Mabel (1278) and Hugh Donald McCuaig had five children, Harriet Jean McCuaig (12781) born in 1912, Frances Anglin McCuaig (12782) in 1913, Donald Samuel McCuaig (12783) in 1914, Allan Hayes McCuaig (12784) in 1922, and Hugh Phillips McCuaig (12785) in 1924.
Frances' death notice in The Kingston Whig Standard 3 of August 2, 2006 indicated that," . . . Frances was a dedicated teacher both by profession and by nature. Her love of God, family, nature, reading and Eagle Lake were augmented by her never-satisfied love of learning. Frances originally began her teaching career with a stint in Fort Erie and then returned home to teach at Sydenham High, Frontenac High, and The South Cottage School. Her contagious love of books and dedicated tutoring helped many young students improve their life opportunities. . . Fran was blessed by the best of friends and neighbours one could ask for and we thank them for their invaluable contributions to both her spiritual and health care needs. . . ."

Their second son was Thomas Gill Anglin (15342), born in 1919 and raised in Montreal, to which his father had come from Toronto in the 1930s. In 1947 he married Millicent Ann Lindsay and had four children. They lived in a house at 3170 St. Sulpice Road in Montreal which he designed and had built about 1953. It became the family's home and they retained it until its sale in 1992. Following Ann's death in 1961, Thomas married Elizabeth Fulcher in 1963 and had three daughters, Josephine (Josie), Sherron and Christina.

He was quite popular at McGill parties for his side interest in hypnotism, and it was said that some parents worried about their daughters' 'safety' at his hands. He also dabbled in mental telepathy and he and his brother, Bill tried to communicate with one another during the Second World War. They were members of the Rosicrucians, who explore such matters. He was a pacifist and a lifelong student of Esperanto, in the hopes that someday we might all have the same second language and be better able to communicate with one another. He was also a yoga enthusiast, long before it was popular, and was into health foods, too.
Mary (15351) and Herb (15352) Horsey
at the 1993 ANGLIN FAMILY REUNION
at LANDON'S BAY, GANANOQUE
The oldest child of Ruth and Richard Horsey was Mary Elizabeth Horsey (15351) who was born at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal on November 27, 1932. She graduated from Montreal West High School in 1949, then studied music for the next five years, mainly at McGill, where she received diplomas in Piano Teaching and School Music Teaching. After that she obtained a BA from McGill in 1958, including her pre-med subjects, then went to Queen's in Kingston and put herself through Medicine, receiving her MD in 1963. She had various positions in Edmonton, where she did a residency in psychiatry, and elsewhere in Alberta, followed by a period in London, England, during which she had various jobs in the National Health Service and became a consultant in Psychiatry. She obtained the British R. C. Psych qualifications and also the Canadian Fellowship in Psychiatry. She returned to Canada, after being in England from 1968 to 1981, and is now a dual citizen of the two countries. She spent about two years following her return to Canada working at a Mental Hospital in St. Thomas. She has been in Barrie since 1983 and has a private practice and is on the staff of the Royal Victoria Hospital there.
Her brother, Herbert Anglin Horsey (15352), was born on April 7, 1935, also in Montreal. He, too, graduated from Montreal West High School, followed by a five year apprentice program in Mechanical Engineering, during which time he also obtained some University credits. However, at the end of his fourth year, he changed his orientation and enrolled at McGill where he obtained a BSc in 1958, including pre-theological studies. He also pursued his life-long musical interests, singing in particular, with the male lead in some of the McGill musicals. His interest in singing has continued throughout his career and he is currently (2003) in the Kitchener-Waterloo Philharmonic Choir.
He went on to study Theology at the University of Western Ontario, became an Anglican priest, and was ordained in 1963, the year that Mary obtained her medical degree. He also married in June of that year, to the former Judith Judson. Herb and Judy have two children, Susan, born in 1964 and John, born in 1966. As his career progressed he once more changed directions, taking a position at comunity colleges teaching adults with both learning and emotional problems. He retired from teaching a few years ago and now, in his retirement, is living in Waterloo and is still affiliated with a church there.
Arthur Anglin (1541) and Emma had a daughter, Mary Ives Anglin (15411), born in 1926, who married Colin Mackay in 1980. Following her death on November 5, 2001, The Globe and Mail, in its regular column 'Lives Lived'6 paid tribute to her long and fulfilled life with the following:
Mary Ives Anglin (15411), 1926 - 2001
"Mary Ives Anglin was born into a prominent Saint John, N.B. family (her father was a member of the legislative assembly and later a judge). She attended the fine private girls' school, Netherwood Collegiate, before finishing her secondary education at Havergal. In the process, she learned to golf, garden, and paint -- avocations she would pursue with passion and pleasure for the rest of her life.
"The Second World War offered her an opportunity for adventure and she took it. She joined the WRENS as soon as she was of age, and spent what was left of the war in Halifax, driving for the Red Cross. The war over, she was called home to do what so many only-daughters assumed was their duty: looking after an aging parent. Her mother had died and, with her brother training to be a doctor, she became caregiver for her father.
"What Mary might have done had this responsibility not devolved on her is impossible to say, but that she would have made herself an interesting and successful career seems a good bet. Besides the talents that she displayed in her painting, her golf, and her prize-winning gardening, there were endearing gifts of mind and personality combined wtih a forthrightness that inspired trust. You never had to wonder very long what Mary was thinking; she was seldom coy and never dissimulating. To some, it may have seemed a rough edge; to those who knew her better it was the mark of a person confident of her own intelligence.
"One of those who knew her better was the man she married in 1980, Dr. Colin B. Mackay, former president of the University of New Brunswick, by then working for the Canadian International Development Agency. Together they divided their time among Rothesay, Ottawa, and wherever Colin's travel schedule might take them, but always, it seemed, arriving back home just in time for ceremonial occasions at UNB, where they were welcomed with affection.
"Her husband's illnesses in recent years cast Mary once again into the role of caregiver, which she accepted selflessly, even courageously, as she struggled against the cancer that would take her own life. Her last act was to make arrangements for Colin and her to move from their lovely but unmanageable home into a seniors' complex where Colin would be cared for when she was no longer able to do it herself."
Colin was the president of the University of New Brunswick from 1953 to 1969, the youngest university president in Canada at that time. On his death in November, 2003 The Globe and Mail in his obituary7 gave the following:
"He later served on several Canadian delegations to the United Nations and worked as an adviser to the Canadian International Development Agency. He was closely involved with the development of a number of universities in Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and Kenya. Over the years, he made as many as 30 trips to Africa, sending post cards filled with fascinating stories home to relatives. Known for his quick mind and endless energy, Mr. Mackay could frequently be spotted riding his motor scooter to his camp on the St. John River. There he enjoyed entertaining family and took great pleasure in teaching the younger generations about the long, proud history of their ancestors in the Maritimes."
John Vickers Arthur (J.V.) Anglin (15412), was born in 1928 and married Gwendylen Mary Hughes, born in 1932, in 1953. J.V. graduated in medicine at McGill in 1953 and took an advanced course in surgery in Detroit.
(l to r) Dennis, Jamie, Patricia, Doreen,
David and Gerald Anglin,
Gerald Anglin (1542) and Doreen had four children. Doreen Patricia Anglin (15421) born in 1927, married John Morrison Gandy in 1953, and has a son John (154211) and a daughter Julia (154212).
The second child was James Gerald 'Jamie' Anglin (15422), born in New Brunswick in 1930, married to Robin McMackin in 1956, and moved to Vancouver in the late 50s. He was Editor of 'Canada Pulp and Paper Journal' in Vancouver until August, 1958. He worked for B.C. Packers for several years.
Jamie's life always revolved around his love of the sea; as a businessman in the fishing industry, and as the owner of several sailboats in which he, his wife, Jennie, whom he married in 1969, and his three children both raced and cruised. Jamie's summers were spent on the water with his family, and there were few cruising waters that they did not visit.
His last and perhaps most ambitious trip was made in the summer of 1993 when they made the voyage to Bella Coola to mark the 200th anniversary of Alexander MacKenzie's trip to the Pacific.
In 1993, the year of his death, Jamie was Commodore of the West Vancouver Yacht Club.
Number three in this family, David Gerald McAvity Anglin (15423) born in 1932, was with Milner, Steer, Langdon & Parke, Barristers, Anglo American Bldg., Calgary.
Last in the family, Dennis Gerald Anglin (15424) was an accountant in the Royal Bank at Montreal Airport, Dorval.
The Fifth Generation: William's (21) Great Grandchildren
Walter Anglin (21423), born in Windsor, Nova Scotia, was a maritimer who became a dentist and a career Lieutenant Colonel in the Canadian Dental Corps. He retired from his dental practice and settled with his wife, Goldie, in Belleville, Ontario in 1968. They raised their three sons there, attending Eastminister United Church, until 2007, when they moved to Toronto to be closer to their sons and their families. He and Goldie died just 12 days apart in January, 2010.
Dr Ruby Jackson8 (21432), after obtaining a B.A., was discouraged from applying to Harvard Medical School by the attitude of some of the faculty -- in 1945 ! ! ! However, she was welcomed at McGill and followed this by becoming the first female hospital resident in obstetrics and gynecology in Boston. She went on to have a successful practice there in that field.
In a letter9 to Bill Anglin giving family up-dates Ruby makes the following reference to the death of John F. Kennedy, Jr, along with his wife Carolyn and her sister, Lauren Bessette, in the July 16, 1999 crash of his private aircraft in the Atlantic Ocean as they approached Martha's Vineyard, MA on their way to a weekend wedding:"The latest Kennedy tragedy has struck us all like a rocket - a somber weekend, indeed. Though [I am] far from being a Kennedy fan, John, Jr. and his sister Caroline were (wisely) brought up by Jackie to have as little as possible to do with the Kennedy families and turned out quite differently, fortunately. And to think it was an avoidable tragedy, had wisdom prevailed. How very uncertain life is!"
Dr Crawford Anglin (21441) served as Medical Officer on Canadian destroyers on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during thhe Second World War. He subsequently served on the staff of the Hospital for Sick Children and is a respected and popular pediatrician inToronto. He is considered especially kind and considerate of his patients. People greatly appreciated his calling, some months after the tragic death of a child, even though the child was not one of his regular patients.
He has been very active in charitable activities, usually connected with his church. At age 73, in 1993, he is still enjoying his practice.
Douglas Anglin (21462), who attended Forest Hill SS in Toronto and was a student of philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Toronto, was a hhodes Scholar in 1946 and a professor of political science specializing in African studies. He served on minesweepers in World War Two, and was on one of the first ships of hundreds in the Normandy invasion. He was the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of Zambia for four years. He still has periodic responsibilities in various countries in southern Africa. Currently, (May 1995), he is a professor emeritus of political science at Carleton University in Ottawa.
Bob Anglin (21464) was born in Toronto in June of 1929 and attended elementary school and Forest Hill Collegiate, all in the same building. He took Actuarial Science at the University of Toronto, met his wife Margaret while at the U. of T., and married in 1954 in Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay). After graduatiion he was hired by Excelsior Life (later Aetna of Canada) as an actuarial clerk, later to become Manager of the Securities Department at the time of Aetna's purchase of the Company. Bob was one of the graduates of the first set of Chartered Financial Analyst examinations. After retirement, he took the exams and became a Certified Financial Planner and formed a small financial consulting company.
He and Margaret have travelled extensively -- Hong Kong, China, Singapore, India, Thailand, Switzerland, the South Sea islands, Australia and New Zealand -- along with canoeing, camping, skydiving (just Bob, though) and sailing. He has been very active in the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron and he and Margaret have sailed extensively in Ontario and to Bermuda, the Virgin Islands, the Grand Turks Islands and the Bahamas.
With what must have been very little available time Bob and Margaret also managed to have four children to whom they are devoted.
Bob has been instrumental in adding significantly to the content of this website with his research on the descendants of his great-great-grandfather, Samuel Anglin (2), some of whom emigrated to Australia and some to Canada.
Stanley Williamson (21641) was awarded the coveted Distinguished Flying Medal in 1940. He was one of the 'few' recognized by Winston Churchill in his famous quote about the men involved in the Battle of Britain, "Never in the history of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
He was the navigator in the lead aircraft in an attack on a new aerodrome in Norway and on the battle cruiser 'Scharnhorst'. Sometimes called a battleship, this was the third largest warship in the German navy and carried at least 38 anti-aircraft guns. It was obviously also heavily protected by fighter planes, other ships and land-based guns. His two best friends were killed on one raid.

He sold his farm in 1964 and went to work as the Service Manager for a John Deere farm implement franchise in Carlisle, PA, from which he retired in 1986. Doris is retired from her job as a telephone company employee. Together they supported all three of their children through college.
