Doreen WEITZEL

Weitzel, Doreen June. April 22, 1933 – January 18, 2014. It is with great sadness that the family share the passing of Doreen J. Weitzel (Whitfield) after her diagnosis of cancer 2 years ago. She spent her last several days in the wonderful care of the Kamloops Hospice (Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial.) She is survived by her brother Bill Whitfield (Mary Lou), children Danny (Lorraine), Tina (Ken) and Shannon (LeeAnne), 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She lived her life fully, tirelessly raising 3 children and touching the hearts of many people by being involved in the community as the Director of The Merritt Longhorns Drum Corp from 1968-1980, and a Foster Parent close to 30 years. She will be loved and missed by many, but we will all have our fond memories. Condolences can be expressed by emailing kamloops@myalternatives.ca as well there will be a Celebration of Life May 16 at 1926 Houston St., Merritt, B.C. from 2-6pm. The family would like to thank Home Support Services, Royal Inland Hospital, Ponderosa Lodge, The Kamloops Hospice and Dr. Dong for their part in her quality of life. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to any of the 4 services above.
