She was a member of Our Lady of Peace church. Doreen loved reading, spending time at the family cottage, baking at Christmas, making wonderful dinners for family and friends; but most of all helping to raise her triplet grandchildren Trevor, Mia, and Kallee. They were her pride and joy.

The family would especially like to thank the staff and Doctors at St. Joseph’s Hospital that cared for Doreen during her illness. The care, compassion, and support shown by everyone at the hospital was truly apricated. Thank you.
