March 13, 1932-April 7, 2011
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Doreen Smith at Royal Jubilee Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born at Sumas Mountain, she resided in Chilliwack until 2003 and then relocated to Campbell River with her loving husband of 61½ years, Alfred, to be close to family. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Alfred, daughter Lauri Collins, son-in-law Ron, grandson Ross Keller and great-grandson Tre, as well as her dog and walking companion Pheobe, sisters; Margaret (Engstrom), Norma (Bailey), Lorraine (Manning) and brother (Clarence) Sam Tolmie and “just like a brother”, Bud Wright, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Doreen was predeceased by her parents Andrew & Bertha Tolmie, stepfather Ernie Bowden; sisters Eileen Pinkerton, Dorothy Gregory and Helen and brothers; William (Bill), John (Jack), Marvin, James, Joseph and Kenny.
As a long standing member of Tops in both Chilliwack and Campbell River, she had many friends she was proud to know.
No service will be held by request. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Canuck Place for Kids with appreciation.
“GG” you will be forever missed.
