THOMSON, Marjorie Doreen (nee Slaughter)

September 9, 1927 – London, ON
December 26, 2013 – Calgary, AB

Doreen Thomson, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away on peacefully on Thursday, December 26 2013 at the age of 86 years.

Doreen was born in London, ON, yet lived most of her life in Calgary. Doreen was sincere and honest and immensely caring to any and all she met. Her neighbours adored her and all her children’s friends always wanted to meet at her home. Doreen was an avid baseball, football and hockey fan and her outbursts during games were legendary. We will miss you Mom but know you will make a wonderful guardian angel.

Doreen is survived by her five children Rick (Allyne), Ron (Shelly), Randy, Marney (Gary) and David (Heather); sister Joyce; nine grandchildren Jessica (Steve), Danny, Raynell (“Clancy”), Jordi (Kyla), Mika, Kehna, Tykara and Andrew; four great grandchildren with one on the way. Doreen was predeceased by her brother Don and grandson Clayton.

A private service will be held for family and friends at a later date. Doreen’s family would like to thank all the staff at Chinook Care for their dedication and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association at www.cmha.ca/get-involved/donate. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Doreen Thomson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

    My deepest condolences to all the Thomson family on the passing of their Mother , Doreen.
    We had many good times with Doreen and Don. First meeting them in Regina as our new neighbours. We partied together , and Rick helped by “BABBY” sitting our three children. As luck would have it , we moved to Calgary about the same time.Years rolled by and our friendship continued. Doreen was always alert and interested in conversation, and joked a lot. We will miss her and her smiling face, but we know she has gone to a better place. Special condolences to my dearest , friend, RICK.

    To the Thompson Family, especially Marney whom I knew through CGIT. Please know that your are in my prayers at this time. I remember Doreen as one who was interested in all aspects of faith and one who treated people with respect. I first visited her when I was a student in ministry and she was most welcoming. I think Rick went to school with my brother Jim Jones.
    Doreen will be missed. Blessings. Gerry Scharff
