February 07, 2000

Doris Kenner-Jackson, 58, of the pop-rock group the Shirelles, whose harmonies on "Soldier Boy" and a number of other songs brought huge success in the early 1960s, died of breast cancer Friday in Sacramento, Calif.

The Shirelles, consisting of Mrs. Jackson, Shirley Alston Reeves, Beverly Lee and Addie "Micki" Harris, began their career at a high school talent show in Passaic, N.J., in 1957, singing their composition, "I Met Him on Sunday."
