September 24, 1927 – October 3, 2014
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother on October 3, 2014 at Chilliwack Hospital at the age of 87.
Mom was born in Sherbrooke Quebec and raised in the Eastern Townships in Quebec where the lineage on her mother’s side went back to some of the first settlers in the area. It was in Drummondville, Quebec after WWII where she met her husband Bill Doull who was returning from overseas. They were married on April 6, 1946 and celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary together just days before he passed away. They had three children, Sandra, Norman and Murray. Family was first and foremost in Mom’s life. She took every means possible to ensure the well-being of her husband and children.
She had many close friends with whom she always stayed in contact with and was always there for them. Those of us that knew and loved Mom will always remember her as the most unselfish person we have ever known. She always put her family and friends first with very little thought to herself. She supported the United Church and a few charities that were dear to her. She was a very loving and giving woman who possessed a heart of gold.
She is lovingly remembered by her children Sandra Doull, Norman Doull and Murray Doull (Lucy); brother Ron Bullard (Lise); grandchildren Joy Sutherland, Roderick Doull, Tanya Pennington (Layne) and Cora Pilon; great grandchildren Rebecca Sutherland, Micheal Sutherland, Adam Sutherland, Kyle Pilon, Brandon Pilon, Gray Pennington and many other relatives and close friends.
A Celebration of Life Tea will be held at 2:00 pm on November 15, 2014 at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave., Chilliwack BC; Rev. Timothy Rowan officiating.
Memorial Donations in lieu of flowers may be made in Claire Doull’s name to the United Ostomy Association Vancouver, 1070 Iverson Rd., Lindell Beach BC V2R 4X5. Online condolences may be offered at
