Her greatest joy was her family which includes her husband of 63 years Richard Ott, two children Darryl (Marc Turman) Ott, and Brenda (Todd) Devaney; granddaughter Christina (Rick) Nelson and two great grandchildren Theodore and Nora Nelson; and two sisters-in-law Betty and Ruth Mueller.  Doris passed away on November 28, 2022, in McAllen, Texas.  She is preceded in death by her parents; brothers Arnold (Edna) Mueller, Eric (Kathryn) Mueller, Werner (Maxine) Mueller, Lloyd (Phyllis) Mueller, Arthur Mueller, Lawrence Mueller; sisters Alice (Ed) Winter, Agnes (Wilbur) Steinert, and Paula (Warren) Fike.
