    I am very sorry for your loss. Death is our great enemy. May you find hope and comfort in the words of John 5:28,29 when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…”

    We are so sorry for your loss. Doreen was a lovely lady. We found her to be a great seamstress as well – she made our daughters’ riding suits.
    God Bless. Joe and Gwenne

    Doreen was a lovely, good natured lady, with an awesome sense of humour who will be sorely missed. One of my favourite memories of her will be when she showed up to bring me a tire iron after I broke down one day about 20 years ago on the 1A Highway, driving back to Calgary after work. True to form she couldn’t have been more helpful, nicer, or more gracious. A truly good person who was always there for and took a genuine interest in others.

    Sincerest condolences to you Pat and the rest of your family. You were all so fortunate having her as your wife, mother, sister and grandmother.
