Until 2017, Doris finally knew her correct age. Before thought she will be turning 93 in 2017, but the Associated Press found out her real age by obtaining a copy of her birth certificate from Ohio’s Office of Vital Statistics, which confirms she was born on April 3rd 1922, making her 2 years older than she thought.
