Doris Mae Napoli, a Rockville homemaker and volunteer at the Rockville Senior Center, died Jan. 22 at her home in Rockville. She was 92.

The cause was cancer, her daughter Lisa M. Napoli said.

Doris Mae Waters was born in Morgantown, W.Va., and raised in Washington, where she graduated from the old Central High School in 1940.

She was a cryptographer with the War Department before joining the Marine Corps in 1944. After the war, she was a civilian clerk-typist for the Marines, then a correspondence secretary for the Kiplinger business and finance agency. She left in 1949 to marry.

Her husband, Joseph I. Napoli, died in 2005. Survivors include three children, Brad Napoli of Urbana, Md., Margo Cook of Brookeville, Md., and Lisa M. Napoli of Grasonville, Md.; three grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
