Doris I. Hoover (Bingham), age 93, of Quincy Village in Waynesboro, PA, and formerly of Liberty Street in Chambersburg, PA, passed away Friday, April 27, 2018. Doris was born on October 15, 1924, in Altoona, PA, and graduated in the class of 1942 from Altoona High School. She was the daughter of the late Charles Edgar and Izetta (Stombaugh) Bingham. Her husband, Ralph Leroy Hoover, preceded her in death on September 25, 1987. Doris was a nurse at the Chambersburg Hospital in Pediatrics and at Mt. Alto Hospital from 1954 to 1959, and later she was employed by the J. Schoeneman Co. (Stanley Co.) for nineteen years. She took early retirement to care for and spend time with her ailing husband. Doris loved to listen to country music and watch cowboy movies on the television.
