     Her family moved to Weed, Calif. in 1928. Doris attended Sacramento State University where she was a member of the Phi Gamma Nu sorority. She then attended Biola University to obtain her degree in Bible and Christian Education.

Pastor and Mrs. Goltz were involved in organizing the planting of 17 churches and they personally started and pastored the Torrington Berean and Scottsbluff Berean Churches. They then ministered at the North Platte Berean Church for 21 years.
     Mrs. Goltz made contributions to many lives through her passion for children’s, youth, and ladies’ ministries, and worldwide missions. She served as Sunday school superintendent of the Primary Departments in all her churches for over 50 years. While in Scottsbluff, she was president of the Women’s Auxillary and a primary fundraiser for Regional West Medical Center.
