Doris was born on September 6, 1926 in Maynard, MN to Fred and Amanda (Christianson) Uttermark. At the age of 6, she moved with her family to a farm north of Sebeka. It was there that she attended the Sebeka Public School and grew into womanhood. In 1945, she was married to James McKinnis and they were blessed with a daughter, Connie.

In 1952, she was married to Wayne Grant and they were blessed with two more daughters: Laura and Deb; and a son, Kenneth. Doris devoted herself to making a warm and loving home for her husband and daughters. She was a wonderful cook and baker who will be long remembered for her delicious homemade Christmas cookies, cakes, and candies. Each spring, she looked forward to planting a large vegetable garden which she worked hard in nurturing into fruitful abundance to preserve for her growing family. She also enjoyed raising beautiful flowers into colorful splendor for all to see and enjoy. Doris enjoyed working with her hands doing all sorts of needlework, crocheting, and quilting many gifts for her family and friends. For many years she was a faithful member of the Menahga Assembly of God Church where she enjoyed worship and fellowship. Above all, Doris will be remembered for the sacrificial and unconditional love she freely gave to her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
