Doranna was born August 24, 1949 in Columbus, Ohio and was adopted at birth by her mother and father.

Doranna met her husband, Joel, when they both ventured to the 60th Rose Bowl in 1974 and were married in Columbus, Ohio on December 27, 1975. After their union, they built a house on the Berry family farm located just north of Shreve where they welcomed and raised their two children. Doranna was a loving mother that much of her time volunteering at the school and baking intricate birthday cakes and pies. Joel and Doranna were co-owners of the Twinsberry Tree Farm and active in the Ohio Christmas Tree Association. Later in life, throughout her extended battle with Parkinson’s, Doranna was a loving and caring grandmother that enjoyed reading and spending time with her two young grandchildren.
