Doris Marlene Hahn was born March 2, 1937, in Midwest, Wyoming to Carl and Alice Hahn. Doris grew up in Midwest, WY where she graduated from the Midwest School System. She attended Casper Junior College for two years. She married Edward Kinion on August 5, 1956 in Edgerton Wyoming. They made their home in Casper and were blessed with two daughters, Kimberly and Karen. Doris worked at Casper Star and Casper Tribune newspaper for a few years out of college, but her most important calling in life was to be a wife and mother.
Fishing, camping and sewing were just a few of her hobbies. Doris had a strong faith and was a member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Buffalo, Wyoming. Doris moved to MN in 2016 to be closer to family. She will forever be remembered by her infectious smile and giving heart. May she rest easy in the loving arms of our Lord.
