Doris was born October 3, 1931 in Chicago (Oak Park), Illinois to Robert Glenn, Sr. and Mary Marie (Kusterer) Castanien.  In 1936, Robert and Mary, with their family of 4 children moved to Tiffin, Ohio where they lived until 1940, when they moved to Canton (East Sparta), Ohio.  Doris graduated from Canton South High School in 1949, attended Heidelberg College for two years before marrying the love of her life, David Lewis Stahl, in 1952.  She graduated from Malone College in 1970, and later earned a Master of Education degree from Kent State University.  She taught for 23 years in the Canton Local School District before retiring in 1993.  She and her husband, Dave, enjoyed ministering in mission service both internationally (Bolivia, Honduras, and Kenya) and domestically (Arizona, Florida, North Carolina),  mostly with World Gospel Mission.  Doris was a member of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Canton, Ohio, and then later Little Country Church in Waynesburg, Ohio.  In October 2005, following the death of her husband, Dave, she moved to Copeland Oaks Retirement Village in Sebring, Ohio. While there she regularly attended Union Avenue United Methodist Church in Alliance, Ohio.  She especially enjoyed time with family, card games with friends, and assisting in the Acorn Gift Shop and Library at Copeland Oaks.
