Mom passed away peacefully, with family by
her side. She is survived by her four daughters,
Linda Goodair (Bud) of Mission, BC; Edith
Palumbo (Dan) of Prince George; Kathy Powell (Brad) of
Nanaimo and Elizabeth (Ken) of Vancouver. Doreen has 8
grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren and many nieces and
nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Thomas James
(Tom) in 2003.
Mom was born in Tuberose, Saskatchewan, and lived on the
family farm, where she spent much of her time with her horse
She eventually moved to Saskatoon to begin her career and it
was there she met her husband. Mom and Dad were married
in Saskatoon in 1951 and then moved to Prince George, where
Dad worked for the CN for 35 years, Mom was a homemaker
and where they raised their family.
Mom moved into the Prince George Chateau in 2004, being
one of the fi rst residents, and was lucky enough to have spent
8+ years there. Due to declining health, she was moved to
Parkside Care Facility in April of 2013, and was cared for by
many wonderful people.
We will always remember Mom’s beautiful smile!
There will be no service by request. Our family will gather at a
later date, for a Celebration of Mom’s Life.
If desired, and in lieu of fl owers, donations may be made to
the Alzheimer’s Society, or a charity of your choice.
