Dori worked for R Kids Rock as a home health nurse to children throughout the area. She loved her patients just as if they were family. Dori enjoyed making her own beaded jewelry so much that she started her own jewelry business, Dream Shadow Designs. Dori had a lively spirit and made people smile wherever she went. She was always ready to tell or listen to a good joke or talk about the latest alien conspiracy theory on the web. She had a givers heart and would never turn anyone away who needed her help.

Dori is preceded in death by her parents John and Vera.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her 3 children Tiffany Black of Maryland, Arthur (A.J.) Benner Jr. of Belton and Travis Benner of Temple as well as her 5 grandchildren Alyssia, Medrick, Tehya, Markayla and Carlyce all of Maryland.
