    I will never forget the fun Doris and I had visiting at the Dome. Our love for hockey, and especially the Flames, made us instant friends. It will never be the same without her, but I will think of her always. May her star always shine brightly in heaven and may she continue to cheer on “her boys” from above. ❤️❤️❤️

We talked about a lot of things but always came back to hockey & her Flames. RIP Doris ! We willl miss you but never forget you. Condolences to her family, friends & Flames family.

    Thomas and family,
    Please accept our deepest heartfelt condolences with the passing of Doris.

    Doris was so special. I don’t know if I’ll ever come to understand how they packed so much love and kindness into one wonderful person.

    Doris became my friend at the Flames games. She had such a gift for making anyone who came to know her feel like family. She was a light in a sea of strangers. She made time for all of us. I will miss her hugs more than I can ever express. Attending an event at the Saddledome will never be the same without her. I enjoyed hearing her stories about the cows, the tractor, the grandkids and Thomas, and her face beamed while she spoke fondly of her life at home.

    She was truly an amazing woman and I’m so grateful for the time I got to spend with her and for all the hugs she shared. She will be missed by many.

  8. I worked at the Saddledome from 2001 – 2014 , although not in the same department as Doris. I knew her as a hard worker , friendly , willing to have a chat with anyone when she had a moment , and dedicated. Doris rarely missed a shift there. She will be missed by many Saddledome staff , players , as well as her family and friends. I was kind of good friends with her daughter Barbara , for a few years about 8 years ago , so I saw Doris a few times at her grandson’s birthday party’s. May you RIP Doris. Condolences and Sympathy sent to your family , and all who knew you.

  10. I had the pleasure of working with Doris for 10 years. She always greeted me with a smile and was beloved by all staff and fans who had the pleasure of interacting with her. Her passion for the Calgary’s teams was always on full display and in particular when as an Usher, where she would run down from her post to the glass to help celebrate a goal alongside the fans. Rest easy Doris, you were one of a kind and won’t be forgotten.

    Doris was one of the most generous, loving and kindest persons we have ever known. She was always smiling and happy, caring and forgiving. One can never forget her hugs and meaningful “I Love You” every time we saw her. The last time we spoke she reminded that she knew how loved she was by everyone and I truly believe that that sent her into God’s arms at peace.

    We will miss the farm and cow stories, her never ending love for The Calgary Flames, her devotion to her work, friends and family, and her love for Tommy.

    May she Rest in Peace, forever watching over the farm, cows, Tommy and family. She will be deeply missed by everyone. We love you dearly sweet Doris, forever you will be in our hearts and souls.

    Doris was a very special lady. We were season ticket holders for the Hitmen for 10 years. Doris became a good friend to us and our family. She always gave the grandkids and our daughter big hugs anytime they were at a game. If we missed a game or two there was always a big hug, ‘I missed you’ and I love you guys’ upon our return.
    The Saddledome has lost their best employee.
    Doris always spoke lovingly of her Thomas and the grandkids and their home in the country.
    Doris, May you Rest In Peace. Your Calgary teams will miss their number one fan.
