Doris I. Hallock, a retired Baltimore pharmacist who was a patron of the arts, died Nov. 6 at Union Memorial Hospital of complications of a fall. She was 90.

The daughter of Leon Imber, a poultry dealer, and Pauline Imber, a homemaker, Doris Imber was born in Baltimore and raised in Reisterstown.

She was a 1940 graduate of Franklin High School and earned her pharmacy degree from the University of Maryland during the 1940s.

As a third-year pharmacy student, Mrs. Hallock told The Baltimore Sun in 1943 that it was her dream to have her own drugstore. "A real professional pharmacy without the usual lunch-counter and soda fountain," she said.

"She worked for years until retiring in 1991 for small Baltimore pharmacies. She never worked for any of the big chains," said her husband of 18 years, Tom Hallock, a retired steamship and tugboat captain.

The longtime West University Parkway resident enjoyed supporting the arts, especially the theater and music, and also supported local craftsmen, her husband said. She was also interested in the plight of veterans.

She practiced holistic medicine and was an accomplished cook and seamstress. She was a world traveler and liked traveling across country in a recreational vehicle that she and her husband owned.

Mrs. Hallock was cremated and her ashes will be buried at sea next spring, her husband said.
