Doreen is survived by her children; Jonathan (Patricia) of Louisville, Kentucky, Florence Chambers (Edmund) of Omaha, Nebraska and Kenneth (Monica) of Milton, Ontario.  She will also be missed by 10 grandchildren; Krista Crowell from Louisville, Kentucky, William Allerton, Heather Allerton, Kenneth Allerton from Omaha, Nebraska.

Doreen came to Canada as a war bride on June 6th 1946.  She worked for many years at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and retired in 1992. She also was a lifetime member of the Canadian Legion and was a lifetime member of St. Matthew/St Paul’s Anglican/United Church.

Doreen enjoyed, walking, knitting, cooking, baking, visiting with friends and along with being the most wonderful mother and friend, she would go out of her way to help others. We know that the last 14 years were the happiest because of the love she had for Erwin Beger.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Foyer des Pionnier’s nursing home in Hearst for the care given to Doreen.  Doreen touched many lives in her life and in her death will always be remembered.  She will be missed and leaves a great imprint in the hearts of all who crossed her path.
