Doris Douglas

Doris Douglas passed away on December 12, 2011 at the Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island in her 97th year.  She was born in Dublin, served as a Wren in the Royal Navy in WW II and came to Canada in 1953.  She lived across the country, including Inuvik, settling into her lovely Salt Spring home in 1989.  There, she lovingly landscaped the entire garden and kept an immaculate home.  She was fiercely independent to the end, an avid gardner and voracious reader, a gracious hostess, and a wonderful friend.  She will be deeply missed by her daughter Marion Allan (Bruce Preston), her grand-daughter Michelle Toews (Terrance), her great grand-daughter Emily Rebecca, and her nieces Jeanette Turk (Buzz) and Gillian Donovan.

Marion and Bruce wish to thank Dr. Beaver and the hospital staff for their loving care of Doris, the amazing volunteers of the Salt Spring Hospice Foundation for their vigil and support, and dear friends Margaret, Bill, and Thomas Wakefield for their endless support.
