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.
