May 22, 1937 – September 7, 2011

The family of Doreen Ann (Dean) Jamieson are sad to announce her passing on September 7, 2011 at Valley Haven Guest Home. Dean was born in Chilliwack and was a lifelong resident, with the exception of several years spent in logging camps on the B.C. coast in the late 1950’s with her husband Jim and two of their daughters. The family returned to Chilliwack, bought a business and were self employed until retirement. Dean and Jim spent many wonderful years fishing, camping and travelling with their Travelall and trailer, until his death on September 6, 1986.

Dean is survived by her four daughters, Sharron (Paul) Wonnacott, Diane (Keith) Surran, Vale Martens and Dell Burke. She had many loved grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her infant son, Billy; her husband, Jim; parents, James and Sophia Ector, her sisters, Marian McKee and Edith Webster and her sons in law, Rudy Martens and Harry Burke.

The family would like to give special thanks to the staff at Cheam Centre in Agassiz and Valley Haven in Chilliwack for their excellent care.

At Dean’s request there will be no service. The family will have a private celebration of her life at a later date, as she wanted.
