Doris loved her family, enjoying their times together. Doris graduated from Trenton High School and Butler County Business School. Before she became a stay-at-home mother, she was employed as a secretary at The Ohio Casualty Insurance Company, and later at Hamilton's Citizens Bank. She lived in her 1830 home 72 years, originally a two-story log cabin which was later updated when her family purchased it. Doris loved her home which complimented her love for history, especially the history of Trenton. She was a lifelong member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church; a member and co-curator of the Trenton Historical Society Museum; a member of The Butler County Historical Society; and CHAPS. Doris served ten years as secretary on the Friends of Chrisholm Board, a Butler County Metropark. On Doris' 100th birthday she was honored by the Chrisholm Board by naming their office at Chrisholm "The Doris L. Page Research Room". She was the author of five books on local history and was called upon to present talks for historical societies and local clubs. She enjoyed the many friends she met through researching Trenton history as well as genealogy projects for many people. Doris also had a chair caning business.
