Passed away peacefully in her sleep, on October 18, 2013, after a full and adventurous life of more than 95 years. Doris was born and raised in England, and came to Canada as a young war bride. She enjoyed forty years with her husband William (Bill) A. Thomas, traveling and living throughout Canada. Together with Bill and her son Roy, Doris paddled a canoe down the Mackenzie River in the NWT, and hiked the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island. Doris loved her garden, and was a proud member of her local garden club for many years. She cherished three successive dogs and one stray cat, cooked and baked tirelessly for family and friends. Doris will be sadly missed, and fondly remembered, by her son Roy and daughter-in-law Suzanne, her two grand-daughters Christen and Breanne, her sister Joan, her many nieces and nephews, and by dear friends everywhere she lived. Celebration of Life at Shirley Hall, West Coast Road, Saturday Nov. 2, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please join Doris' family, friends and neighbours for lunch and an opportunity to share your memories of Doris' long and happy life on Seaside Drive.
