Doris was known for her delicious Puerto Rican cuisine, her pumpkin fritas were a favorite of all her grandchildren. She loved dancing to salsa while she cooked, trips to Foxwoods Casino and taking care of her mini garden at home. Doris often took daily walks to play her numbers.  Whenever anyone visited her you could look up and see her waving from her 6th floor window.
