Obituary of Doris Bragg

<h1>Doris Bragg</h1> 1939 – 2007 Doris died surrounded by family at her home on Sunday, August 5, 2007, at the age of 68 after many years of illness. Beloved wife of Gordon Bragg for 44 years. Loving mother of Kenneth Bragg and wife Erin Thomsen of Vancouver, Ian Bragg and wife Paula Glick of Toronto, Ross Bragg and wife Mona Gleason of Vancouver and Lynn Bragg of Vancouver. Loving grandmother of Sophie and William. Dear sister of Ian Middleton and wife Etta of Scotland and Lesley Boyd and husband Alistair Greig of England and daughter Alice with children Daisy Mae and Alfie. Doris was predeceased by her parents, William and Gertrude Middleton of Gartcosh, Scotland. In addition to her life as a homemaker and mother, Doris had an active career as a social worker, finishing as Clinical Director of K-W Counselling Services. When we remember Doris, we remember her deep appreciation of the natural world. She was never happier than when hiking up a mountain trail, canoeing the waters of Georgian Bay, or cross-country skiing. Her incredible strength remains an inspiration to her family and friends and her courage and determination was best displayed in her struggle against her failing body. More than all of this though, we remember a woman generous in love, hard working for her family, and as someone who found the utmost pleasure in the simplest things. Doris’ family will receive visitors and friends for a memorial visitation at the Erb &amp; Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King Street South in Waterloo on Wednesday, August 8 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. The memorial service to celebrate Doris’ life will be held at Trinity United Church, 74 Frederick Street, Kitchener, on Thursday, August 9, 2007 at 11 am with Rev. Jack Paleczny officiating.
