May 23, 1923 – April 26, 2021
It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Doris, with her family at her side. Doris was born in Whitechurch, Ontario.
Predeceased by her parents, husbands Stan Leeson, and Bruce Coleman, her son Bob, and son-in-law Pete Seggie. Doris lived life to the fullest.
She travelled the world and loved to square dance. She was a proud Air Force Veteran, serving in WW2.
She leaves behind her daughter Carole, daughter-in-law Karen. Grandchildren Kristin (Doug), Julie (Jake), and Graham (Sarah). Her great-grandchildren Kenzie, Kinley, Robert, Joey, Wendi, Hannah, and Chloe.
Sure will miss the “old girl”! Keep on dancing Doris!
In lieu of flowers please donate to the B.C. Cancer foundation, or the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation. As per Doris’s wishes, she will be cremated and placed with Stan at Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens Cemetery at a graveside service later in the summer.
A Mother’s Farewell To Her Children
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same,
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways,
Reach out your had in comfort and in cheer
An I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!Obituary
