Doris was a veteran of WWII having served in the Royal Canadian Air Force where she met and married Doug. They were members of the Air Force Club #416 and the R.C.L. Br. #143. Doris enjoyed many years working at Sears (Division 96) developing lifelong friendships. Doris and Doug enjoyed a rich retirement that included travelling with family and friends. Doris loved her home and her gardens, tending to both until her passing. A heartfelt thank you to the wonderful friends and neighbours who supported her. She was a lucky gal during her trips to the Casino and in life generally. Cremation has taken place.
