Doris was born in Hartford, CT to Rose and Louis Faucher on June 23rd, 1932. She moved to Biddeford and attended St. Mary’s Catholic School of Biddeford and graduated from Biddeford High School in 1950. At the age of 16 she met the love of her life, Donald Plante of Biddeford and wed December 30th, 1950.
Together they raised 9 children and after retirement helped care for their youngest grandchildren: Justin Perron, Benjamin, Andrew and Nathan Plante.
Doris went to work at Pepperrell Mill/Biddeford Textile in 1962 as a weaver for nearly 30 years.
Doris loved playing the organ and accordion and had a beautiful voice. Her life always revolved around her family and maintaining a comfortable home; a fun place to be for her children and grandchildren. She and our Dad were happiest when we all gathered on Sundays and enjoyed the famous Daigneault Soup.
