CLAY STEWART, Doris Elizabeth

June 21, 1922 – Stettler, Alberta
June 29, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Doris Elizabeth Clay Stewart of Calgary, AB and Nakusp, BC, passed away on Friday, June 29, 2018 at the age of 96 years.

Doris lived for many years in Calgary, where she, her husband Ralph and brother Gordon operated a piano business. In the early eighties Ralph and Doris bought property and built a house on the Arrow Lakes south of Nakusp, BC. They loved their house in the forest and had lots of happy times there. For years it was a vacation destination for the family.

Eventually she moved into the town of Nakusp, BC with her husband Larry. She lived there and was quite active in the senior’s community until returning to Calgary in 2012.

Doris enjoyed doing many things including bowling, golf, playing bridge, and line dancing. She was quite athletic as a young person and always tried to have an active lifestyle.

Doris is survived by her two children, Pamela Berg (Kent), and Thomas Clay (Karen); her six grandchildren, Sean Berg (Carmen), Erin Berg-McMath (Luke), Colin Berg, Dominic Clay, Anthony Clay, and Terence Clay; her two great-granddaughters, Rose and Alexis McMath; niece, Kathy Muirhead (Keith); and nephews, Brian Fishwick (Betty) and Alan Fishwick (Muriel) and their families, and Peter Fishwick.

She was predeceased by her husbands Ralph Clay (2001) and Larry Stewart (2005); her three brothers, Norman Fishwick, Harold Fishwick, and Gordon Fishwick; and her nephew, Howard Fishwick.

The family would like to thank the Senior’s Club in Nakusp, BC where Doris enjoyed many years of friendship and fun; also the caring staff of The Edgemont Retirement Residence (Calgary, AB) for their kind assistance to Doris in the last months of her life.

A Gathering will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Crowfoot, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W., Calgary, AB), on Friday, July 27 2018 at 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through
