Doris Walker Appleman

Doris Walker Appleman was born in 1910 and grew up on a farm near Burlington Jct., Missouri. Her father believed in a college education for women, and Doris’s three younger sisters were able to graduate from Northwest Missouri State University – then titled Northwest Missouri State Teachers College. Although she had received a scholarship to attend Maryville High School, finances did not allow Doris to go to college. She was particularly interested in commercial activity and was known by all for a lifetime of hard work and wise investing. She continued to read business publications until her death at age 93. Doris maintained a deep interest in young people and conveyed to her grandchildren the importance of integrity and honesty in all walks of life. “Be kind,” she said, “and to thine own self be true.”
