Douglas was born to Mary & Cecil Clements in Barrhead Alberta and was the youngest of 6 children, Buck (predeceased), Gerri (predeceased), Joyce, Terry & Russell.
Douglas planted his roots in Barrhead and fathered 4 children; Pam, Geoff, Cecile & Paula, all of whom have successful careers and gave their father 6 beautiful grandchildren; Madison, Hope, Taylor, Hunter, Makai & Jillian.
Douglas later moved out west and met and married Jean who has 5 children; Todd, Kara, Alison, Clay & Sheldon; and was the proud grandfather to Jennifer, Nicholas & Maleyna.
His friends and family knew Doug to be a Jack-of-all-trades. There was no one he wouldn’t help and nothing he couldn’t fix. Doug and Jean became active in fostering under privileged children. The list of names of the children’s lives he touched would be too extensive to list.
Doug we thank you for the memories and we will miss you very much.

MURIEL DAVY (nee Nickel)
January 21, 1929 - May 7, 2008
Muriel Davy of Kamloops passed away on May 7, 2008 at the age of 79 years.
She is survived by her four children Stanley Allan (Mary-Ann) Davy, James Robert (Ashly) Davy, Patricia Ann (Jospeh) Wielgoz, and Lynda (Gene) Davy; eleven grandchildren, Robert James Wielgoz, Jennifer Lynda Wielgoz, Donnelle Kym Davy, Michelle Lynn Davy, Sara Ashley Lynne Davy, Jesse Taylor Davy-Powell, Stephen Joseph Davy, Victoria Muriel Davy, Marshal Catlin McCallum, Duckham James Davy, and William Allen Leslie Davy; three great grandchildren, Ripley Oliver Martin, Adam Alexander Wielgoz, and Braden Matthew Wielgoz; five brothers, Bud (Shirley) Karst, Harold (Alice) Karst, Brock (Jean) Karst, Norman (Linda) Karst, and Robert (Ruth) Nickel.
She was predeceased by her granddaughter Rebecca Ann Davy (July 1985), and by her husband James Milford Davy (July 1998).
Muriel was born on January 21, 1929 in Saskatoon Saskatchewan to mother Edna Archibald and father Tommy Haycock. She was adopted by Abram A. and Martha Nickel. From southern Saskatchewan they moved to Abbotsford BC in the mid 1930s. She was raised on a dairy farm and graduated from Normal School in 1949. Muriel taught school at Mara BC to raise money for her education and met James Milford Davy, her husband to be, and her life plans changed. She taught school throughout the southern interior of BC for many years, mostly in the Kamloops area. She touched many children’s lives as they passed through her classrooms. She was always willing to go the extra mile to help someone in need, especially children who were eager to learn and others who didn’t know they were so eager.
Muriel was a wife, a mother, a teacher, a grandmother, a great grandmother, and, above all, a friend to all who knew her. As we mourn her passing, we must remember that she is now with her sweetheart whom she has missed dearly these past ten years.
She will be truly missed by all whose lives she has touched
but she will live on in the memories and the lessons that she has left here with us.
Muriel and family would like to thank Ponderosa Day Services and handyDart for their loving, compassionate care and services.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 am on Sunday, May 18, 2008 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive.
Donations may be made in Muriel’s memory to the Chris Rose Society, 1111 Tranquille Road, Kamloops BC in lieu of flowers.
