July 12, 1939 – November 22, 2017
Jocelyn Doucet, of 100 Mile House BC, born July 12, 1939 in Bonneville, Alberta, peacefully passed away at her home surrounded by friends and family on November 22, 2017 after a long battle with cancer.
She is predeceased by her mother, Noeline; her father, Armand; her brother, Andrew; and her sister, Lillian; along with numerous aunts.
She is survived by her loving husband, Roger, who tirelessly took care of her for the last five years of her illness. She is also survived by daughters, Suzanne (Allan) Yochim, Lorraine (Al) Doucet, and Lyanne Griffiths; grandchildren, Shelley, Tracey, Lori, Cory, and Kevin; and her three great grandchildren, Quinton, Hannah, and Robin.
Jocelyn’s life was full of laughter, love and tears. When she was young, she worked at BC Packers Company as a filleter for many years before quitting to start her family. She was a member of the ladies auxiliary club #284 in Stevenson, BC for more than 25 years, helping with many events.
She was an avid five pin bowler and was part of a mixed couples league for years, winning many awards and trophies in the process. She enjoyed cake decorating, her family, spending time at their property at Green Lake, and travelling. On her last travelling expedition, she and Roger travelled for three months through Alaska, Yukon and The Northwest Territories.
The family gives a heartfelt thanks to everyone involved with the care of Jocelyn for the last five years; home support, 100 Mile District General Hospital, 100 Mile Palliative Care; and to all the nurses and hospice staff who helped her and the family in our time of need.
We would also like to say thank you to Dr. A Juren and Dr. G. Lubbe for the continual help and support. The family also wishes to say thank you to Vital Air for their role in supplying our mother with oxygen during her time of need. Very special thank you goes out to Dustin Leduc of Donex Pharmacy for going out of his way and staying late to make sure Jocelyn had her medications.
A very special thanks also goes to Debbie and Spence Henderson, Richard and Kandas Bullen and Pastor Rick Barker of 108 Christian Life Fellowship Church, who bravely stood with Roger and Lyanne at Jocelyn’s bedside while she took her last breath, we could not have gotten through this without your wisdom and strength.
The family would like to invite you to a celebration of her life in 100 Mile House on Saturday Sept. 22 2018. At 2:00 pm at 100 Mile Cemetery for a brief graveside service, followed by a reception at the Creekside Seniors Centre, 501 Cedar Avenue.
