She was born to Charles and Mary Seiler Grout, Winterset, Iowa, May 4, 1918, the oldest of 5 children. \n\nHer childhood years were spent in Winterset, Iowa. Before she married, she was a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse. On June 1, 1940, she married her childhood sweetheart, Dale Schirm, and settled in Denver, Colorado. In 1962, Doris and Dale, along with their daughters Marcia and Melodee, moved to Murray, Utah. Throughout their 67-year marriage, she and her husband enjoyed square dancing, fishing, and spending time with family at their cabin in Fruitland. \n\nAfter Dale’s retirement in 1978, their winter home-base was in Mesa, Arizona, while traveling in their motor home throughout Mexico with their friends. Doris enjoyed crossword puzzles, good friends, and most of all, her family. She was always anxious to get back to Murray in the spring to watch her grandsons play baseball.
