COULSON, Doris Janet

August 28, 1965 – Esterhazy, Saskatchewan
February 12, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Doris, beloved wife of Derek Coulson of Calgary, AB, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2017 at the age of 51 years.

Doris was born August 28th, 1965 in Esterhazy, Saskatchewan. At a young age she moved to Powell River, BC for a few years before the family moved to Calgary, Alberta where she made her home. After graduating high school, she went to work for Economical Insurance where she built a 30 year long career. When the company downsized she left to work for Wawanesa where she quickly became a respected supervisor.

Doris loved her family more than anything else. Her little grand daughter was the light of her life. They spent many days together playing princesses and reading stories.  She is forever loved and deeply missed. In both life and death Doris has touched the lives of family and friends.

Doris is survived by her loving husband Derek Coulson; daughters and sons-in-law, Angela Coulson and Tyler Willson and Maddison Coulson and Jeff Linantud; granddaughter Alivia; sister Marion and her partner Mike; brother Calvin and his wife Monica; sister January, as well as numerous aunts and uncles.  She was predeceased by her mother Mary-Jane Zinman and father Morgan Anderson. May their spirits happily reunite.

Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th Street S.E.) on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  8. So sorry for the loss of such an amazing person. Doris was loved by many and will be missed. The love for her husband and her daughters and granddaughter showed through everyday. All you needed to do was walk by her desk to see the family that she brought with her everyday in her thoughts. She was so proud of all of you.
    She was always so willing to help and listen to others with a kind word, a huge smile, and a gentle hug and seemed to be able to figure out just what was needed at each moment. I am so grateful that I got to know her and call her not only my co-worker, but also my friend.

    My thoughts, prayers and hugs go out to all the family.

  31. My condolences to Derek, Angela, Madison and Alivia on the loss of Doris, as wife, mother and grandmother. Having been a friend and co-worker of Doris for the past few years, I feel blessed to have known Doris, even for such a short period of time as she was a very rare and special person.

  37. Arlene Coulson :

    Doris was lovely. From the moment we met her we felt comfortable in her presence and knew exactly she was a treasure of a woman, wife, mother, family member and friend . We had some good times in the company of Derek and Doris and knew their priority in life was their family and friends. Doris was a fun person to be with but could be a listening ear and empathetic to others. What could anyone ask for more than that? Forever missed but never forgotten. Lots of love xxxx
