Doris K. Marlow, a retired bookkeeper, died of stroke complications Sunday at Good Samaritan Hospital. The Northwood resident was 97.

Born Doris Christine Kraft in Baltimore, she was raised on Madison Avenue and later on Auchentoroly Terrace. She graduated from Western High School in 1923 and later attended a business school in downtown Baltimore.

After raising a son, she worked as a sales associate at the old Hecht Co. in the Northwood Shopping Center. She was then assistant manager for the Northwood Apartments owned by the Roland Park Company. She later worked as a bookkeeper at the company's headquarters in the 4800 block of Roland Ave.

In 1963 she became a bookkeeper at the Wallace H. Campbell Co., a real estate management firm, at its downtown office on Light Street. She retired in 1993.

Mrs. Marlow enjoyed playing cards and reading.

Services were held Wednesday.

Survivors include her son, Charles Lester Marlow of New Haven, Conn; and a sister, Jean Wallace of Baltimore. Her husband of 26 years, Charles Lester Marlow Jr., an office manager for Title Finance, died in 1952.
