December 13, 1947 – Montreal, QC
July 8, 2013 – Calgary, AB

Doreen Leggett of Calgary passed away on Monday, July 8, 2013 at the age of 65 years.

Doreen was born in Montreal in 1947. She moved to Edmonton in 1969 and worked for Imperial Oil. It was there she met and married Robert Leggett. They later moved to Calgary and in 1987 she gave birth to her only son, Jason William Leggett, the light of her life. Doreen was one of the founding members of the Calgary South West United Soccer Association (CSWU) and dedicated a significant portion of her time to providing the youth of Calgary an opportunity to play, develop and excel in soccer. Doreen was involved in community soccer for over twenty years, as a parent/team manager, cheering on her son Jason and his teammates, as a volunteer organizing local events, at the board level (Shaw-nee Soccer) and as a valuable member of the CSWU team in many roles. Doreen’s passion was supporting children playing organized sports and she worked closely with the charity, Kidsport. She bravely battled cancer for the last six years and remained strong throughout her illness. On Monday, July 8th in the early morning she was no longer in pain and was finally at peace.

Doreen Leggett (nee Wilde) will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her son, Jason William Leggett (Lauren Frandle) and her brothers, Bruce, Robert (Lisa), Earl (Michelle Le Sage) and their children Alex and Courtney Wilde. Doreen is also survived by her mother Eileen Margaret Wilde. She was predeceased by her father Francis John Wilde and her sister Carol Wilde.

    Doreen was an amazing person and will be sadly missed. We will always remember the times of early morning mini fest soccer organization for four to six year olds on Saturday mornings. She was all about the best for kids in sports.

    Jason, she was so proud of your accomplishments of late and had comfort in your recent choices in life.

    Doreen will be missed by all the people she touched.

    Jason, I had the opportunity to work with your mother at IOL. She was fabulous. She was out going, great sense of humour and a genuine caring person. I remember when she heard she was pregnant with you, she was over the moon. She loved you with her whole heart. We are all sharing in your loss but our thoughts are with you. She was a wonderful person and we will all miss her.

    Jason, I had the pleasure to meet your mom at Imperial Oil in Edmonton and through curling bonspiels when she lived in Sherwood Park. I found Doreen to be a very warm, fun, caring and thoughtful person to be with. I miss her greatly and share your loss, but fond memories remain steadfast.

    To the family of Doreen
    I was saddened to hear of Doreen’s passing on July 8. I curled at the Family Leisure Centre, S.E.Calgary, against Doreen for many years. She was an avid curler and a pleasure to know. I distinctly remember her smile and kindness. Though we haven’t seen one another for many years she touched my heart. My sympathy to you all. Sincerely Joyce Frame, Calgary
