It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Doris Mary Jane McCoy, loving wife, mother and grandmother on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at the age of 79 years. She passed peacefully surrounded by her loved ones.
Doris was born in Ottawa and after her late husband Gerry retired from Canada Post, they moved to Calgary to be with their children. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother and was treasured by her family. We will miss her more than words can say and she will forever be in our hearts. She now joins her son Wayne, who passed away on July 3, 2011, and her husband Gerry, who passed away January 16, 2010.
