  2. Georgia Title nee Laycock :

    I was saddened to hear of your families loss. I remember Doris as a happy, giving, easy to laugh, friendly woman. I don’t remember the last time I saw Doris – maybe Penticton in 1990 or so at a reunion. Unfortunately after our Dad’s death, in 1969, the Ross Laycock branch pretty much lost contact, except of course through Deanna and her yearly letters which I enjoy and I appreciate her efforts.
    I understand the pain of your loss and can only say, remember the good times and celebrate Doris having such a long & happy life.
