July 9, 1930 ~ Sept. 14, 2022
On September 14th, with the same intention and grace she gave to all things, Doreen waived goodbye. Over her 92 years, she cultivated a love of gardening, good design, great books, fine music, intelligent conversation and a wicked sense of humour. Doreen loved deeply her husband George, her brothers and their families and the many friendships made, on Salt Spring and afar.
Doreen wished to thank Dr. Gummeson, and all the nurses and caregivers who provided care and kindness. Her heartfelt thanks to Dr. Slakov who walked with her in her last hours.
Ram Dass says that we are ultimately walking each other home. Auntie Doreen, thank you for letting us walk with you.
