Doris Mae Jacob was born in Marshalltown, Iowa, daughter of John and Rennatta (Fricke) Jacob.  On February 24, 1951, she was united in marriage to William Earl Schnur at St. John’s Lutheran Church in State Center, Iowa.  Doris was a social person who liked to sit and visit with neighbors on her porch.  She was often seen riding her bicycle around town, and stopping by to say “hello” to family and friends.  Doris was notorious for her long goodbye when company was leaving.  She liked to cook, clean, play solitaire, and watch “The Price is Right.”  In the winters Doris and Earl would drive their 5th wheel south for warmer weather.  She enjoyed growing flowers, especially red geraniums, and watching hummingbirds flit from flower to flower.
