The 'Calamity Jane' actress - who passed away this week from pneumonia - didn't like thinking about what life would be like for her animals without her around because she found it morbid and struggled to accept she wouldn't live forever.

Doris' manager and close friend Bob Bashara told PEOPLE: "She didn't like death, and she couldn't be with her animals if they had to be put down. She had difficulty accepting death. I'd say we need to provide for her dogs [after she died], and she'd say: 'I don't want to think about it' and she said: 'Well, you just take care of them.' She had several when her will was written, and she wanted to be sure they were taken care of. She didn't like to talk about the dogs dying."
