She was preceded in death by her parents and husband of seventy-five years, James Fredrick Schmiechen. Also preceding her in death are her sons John W. Schmiechen, Martin J. Schmiechen, daughter Mary S. Wallace, and granddaughter Kendra Schmiechen. Doris and Jim raised four boys and adopted one girl.

Upon the hospitalization and death of her husband in July, 2020, Doris moved to Lakeshore Assisted Living facility in Lake Tomahawk where she received excellent care and resided until her death. Doris was a devout Catholic, who loved children and nurturing others. She loved to give out $2 bills to others, particularly children. She thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife up north, especially the deer and birds. She would have as many as fifteen deer at her feeder at one time. The humming birds and grosbeaks were a delight and “oh, and don’t forget to put a little bird seed on the ground for the squirrels.” Doris is survived by her brother Tony (Anthony) Caucutt of Destin, Florida and sons Robert L. Schmiechen (Karen nee Grim) of Waukesha, Wisconsin, and James A. Schmiechen of Broomfield, Colorado.
