She was an inspiration to all who knew her. Doreen had an amazing group of friends who shared a love of quilting, embroidery, and friendship. To her family, she was the best wife, Mom, sister, and Granny. We will love and miss her forever. Doreen was grateful for the special care she received from her wonderful caregivers. Thanks to Drs. Blair and Barb Main, Dr. Randi Ostby, Dr. Koen Geerts, Dr. Leila Klopper, and all of the nurses and care aides at Fischer Place and 100 Mile Hospital.
