She later was employed as a pharmacist for Super X, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, and CVS pharmacies.
Doris was a devoted member of her community.

She was an accomplished vocalist and speaker who provided congregations and the community with delightful songs of praise and words of inspiration. For a period of time, she and a close friend hosted their own radio program, “Christmas Everyday,” on WELC as a means to share God’s Word through both song and praise. Doris later returned to school to become a pastor in the Methodist Church, and came to hold regular services at the Boyd’s Chapel, Jenkinjones, and Anawalt churches, of McDowell County.
Those left to cherish her memory include her mother, Frances Rouse Holiway, of Brushfork, W.Va.; her sister, Karen Holiway Turner and husband Joe, of Bluefield, Va.; Doris’ husband Kenneth Money, of Bluefield, Va.; her four children--her daughter Crystal Haun and her companion Joey R., of New Orleans, La.; her daughter Tabitha Haun, currently attending WVU School of Dentistry, and her companion Michael Justice, currently attending WVU; her daughter Amber Anderson, her husband Jason, and their expected daughter Hailey, of Glenville, W.Va.; and her son J.T.
