Doreen was born in Zealandia, Saskatchewan and moved to Ontario as a teenager. She became a Cub leader where she met Jack, who was a Scout leader, and their everlasting romance continued for 67 wonderful years. Doreen loved playing Scrabble, Bridge, and would do her daily crosswords in the KW Record. She never missed the curling tournaments on TV and always cheered for the Toronto Blue Jays. She often spoke of her beloved friends, the Acorns, was a loyal supporter of the church and the church choir, and enjoyed travelling with her family and with the Probus group. Her beautifully handwritten letters will be remembered by many.
Doreen will be missed dearly by her family, but will be at peace resting with her beloved husband.
