Doreen was born and raised in Leeds, Yorkshire, England and lived there until she emigrated to Sidney in 2012 to live with her daughter Angela, and son in law Keith. She was a cherished mum to Angela (Keith), loving sister to Gladys, very special Aunty to Ann (Roger), fun Great Aunty, Great Great Aunty, “Grandma” and special friend to many. She was loving, kind, generous and loyal, with a mischievous sense of humour. She always saw the good in the world and she will be sadly missed by us all.
The family would like to say a special thank you to the staff on 3D at Oak Bay Kiwanis Pavilion for their patience, kindness and sense of humour towards Doreen over the past two months.
Flowers are gratefully declined. If so desired, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of British Columbia, Minds in Motion Programme, through which Doreen and Angela met some very special people.
A celebration of Doreen’s life will be held at Shoal Centre on Monday, February 8th (which would have been her 93rd birthday) at 2 p.m. We will wear pink and/or our best and shiniest shoes and remember this beautiful lady.
