Doris Sylvester is portrayed by actress Carol Burnett.
Doris Sylvester was first mentioned in the episode by Sue who made a comment about euthanizing her. Obviously, this was one of Sue's many lies, to intentionally horrify Will Schuester.
Later, it is mentioned by Sue in the episode The Power of Madonna that Doris and her husband were actually famous Nazi-hunters and weren't present for much of Sue's childhood, which appears to have left Sue with a great deal of resentment towards both her parents, but Doris in particular. As a result of their absence, Sue and Jean were often left with little money and little attention during their childhood.
After attempting her hand at online dating, Sue discovers that the only person she is capable of marrying is herself, which leads to her doing just that. As a result she and her student assistant Becky Jackson, plan out the wedding and send out invitations, one of them reaching Doris. And so as Sue proceeds to fire her wedding planner, she is shocked and horrified to see that her mother has arrived for the wedding. Doris wastes no time insulting and belittling Sue (in a manner similar to how Sue treats other people), and voicing her disapproval of Sue's intent to marry herself. Sue meanwhile grows angry at the fact that Doris has made not a sinlge attempt at visiting her other daughter Jean in the assisted living home that she resides in. Despite her dislike of Sue's self-marriage, she still makes the intention to stay, wanting to have her 'moment' with the girls, and intends to walk Sue down the aisle. Sue however rejects the offer, and but reluctantly agrees to let Doris sing at her wedding.
Doris later gets Brad to accompany her as she forces Sue to sing Ohio with her in the auditorium. Sue shows obviously anger and discomfort, but oddly enough controls her bubbling temper. When the day of Sue's wedding finally arrives, Doris makes awkward and very uncomfortable conversations with Jean, while at the same time loudly stating how she disapproves of the wedding; when Sue begins to perform the ceremony for herself, her mother's behavior becomes too much, particular when Doris begins to claim wanting to have her moment with the girls again. Sue angrily counters that she had her chance, but chose instead to abandon her daughters to hunt Nazis. Doris weakly tries to justify the actions of her husband and herself, but Sue has none of it, and calls her a bully for how she's always treated Jean and herself. She then disinvites Doris from the wedding, and perhaps out of the lives of Jean and Sue. This is the last time Doris is seen in Season Two and on Glee so far. It is unknown if she will appear on Glee again, as she was not seen in Season Three.
She was mentioned in Funeral when Jean dies with Sue stating, "She said her goodbye years ago". She was not informed of Jean's death.
