American astrologer, one of the unsung heroes in her field who never became famous but supported professional astrology with membership in AFA, June 1955, and studies in the Church of Light and contributions to the Theosophical Society and whose work touched the life of many people. Ethics were important to her and she exemplified the high ideals of astrology. In December, 1954, Doris became the first American woman to be certified by the Faculty of Astrological Studies headed by Margaret Hone and founded under the auspices of the Astrological Lodge of London. This was, for the times, a radical undertaking--a brand new and prestigious correspondence course that crossed the ocean with personal handwritten instruction from Margaret Hone and Jeffrey Mayo. One of the true pioneers who forged ahead before computers, calculators, or word processors, she fought prejudice and ignorance to promote high standards in astrology
In her family, decisions were made with astrology, from buying cars to planning marriages, and her daughter, Bette Delinger, followed her footsteps in becoming a professional astrologer.
Doris died in 11/11/1971, Aransas Pass, TX.
