She married Russell on July 31st, 1953 and moved from Edmonton, AB to Red Lake, ON before settling in Lakeland permanently, where they raised their children.

Doris’ first passion was her family to whom she devoted her life. Her children and her grandchildren were everything to her, as she sewed and knit and baked for them, and taught them to sew and knit and bake for themselves. She also shared her love of gardening with them, reaping the harvest from her vegetable patch and her fruit trees, always sharing her bounty with family and friends. Her lovely flower-filled yard was the setting of many family picnics.

When the children were grown and gone, Doris and Russell toured North America in their RV. Doris loved to travel and their trips took them north to Alaska, south to Louisiana and numerous states and provinces in between. She also loved to fish and her and Russell spent hours in their boat trolling for the big one.

Doris was an active community member, affiliated with the Royal Purple for many years. She was always ready to lend a hand serving or baking for various community functions. She enjoyed curling, taking part in many local bonspiels; she coached a baseball team which her daughters played on, and in later years you could find her walking down their gravel road with her faithful companion Elie.

A memorial service was held on Wednesday, August 1, in the Langruth Community Hall at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Phyllis Thordarson officiating. Interment followed in the Lakeland cemetery.

Should friends desire, donations may be made in Doris’ memory to the Alzheimer’s Society, in support of ongoing research.
