February 23, 1922 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
September 18, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
On February 23, 1922 in Winnipeg, MB, Doris entered this world not knowing how many lives she would profoundly touch on her journey. Doris took great pleasure in her role of mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, mentor and friend. She was truly an extraordinary woman whose greatest joy was her family. Doris enjoyed music, poetry, writing and entertaining. She leaves a legacy of love and faith to her children Sheila Claire Bouchard (Guy), Janice Norma Nicolay, Robert Martin Nicolay (Terra), and Perry Daniel Nicolay (Fiona); grandchildren Allison, Scot, Michelle, Heather, Brandon, Pedro and Fiona; and great-grandchildren Nicole, Matthew, Kelton, Olivia, Jackson and Kai Clarence Nicolay.
On September 18, 2014 this truly remarkable grand lady stepped from this world into eternity. Awaiting her arrival were her beloved husband Clarence (Nic) Nicolay, parents Norman and Myrtle Seymour, brother Perry Norman Seymour and countless friends welcoming her into paradise. Though we will miss her and cherish her memory, we believe that she will be among those who wait for us in eternity.
