The daughter of Lyman W. and Claudia (Rake) Worthington, she was born March 27, 1929, in Cumberland, Iowa. She graduated from Atlantic High School in 1947. Doris met Lloyd B. "Bud" Lindeman when they were children in Sunday School. When she was a freshmen, they began dating and were high school sweethearts.

They attended Atlantic Gospel Chapel where she taught Preschool Sunday School for over 40 years. In recent years, she was actively involved in a telephone and prayer ministry. Doris loved Jesus and spent her life living out her faith and trust in Him. One of her final comments was, "Jesus Paid It All." She also loved her family and poured her heart into caring for them. In her quiet moments, she loved fishing, reading and watching classic movies.
