It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Doreen Margaret (nee Coulson). Doreen was born in Edmonton, AB and raised in Lake Cowichan before residing to Nanaimo, BC. Doreen retired after 18 years with the Nanaimo Credit Union to be with her family and her garden. Doreen was a strong person fighting a double bypass and a stroke before liver failure finally took her to be in heaven with her mother Dora. She leaves behind her husband of 48 years Alexander Lancaster, 3 daughters; Glenda Guillemaud, Karen Wilson (Rex), and Jennifer Markel; grandsons Tyler, Blayde and Alexander. Also her family which resides in Edmonton, Lucy (Bob) Strothers, Betty (Cliff) Rouden, Herb (Lynda) Coulson and George Coulson. She is predeceased by her brother Ray Coulson whom she also will join.
Mother we all hope you are happy and we eventually will join you someday. Until we meet again your family.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, June 21, 2005 at 1:00pm in the chapel of First Memorial Funeral Services, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC. Everyone is welcome. In lieu of flowers donations made in mom’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation would be gratefully appreciated.
