Gladys (Doreen) Olson
Passed on June 6, 2021
1926 – 2021 On the morning of Sunday, June 6, 2021, Doreen passed away comfortably with her daughter Sandra at her side.
Doreen was predeceased by her parents Stanley and Dorothy Olson, her brothers Murray, Stanley, Percy and her sisters Qwen, Ollie and Mildred.
Doreen, a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, auntie, cousin and friend will leave a huge void in all our lives. The memory of Doreen will live on in her daughters Sandra (Irv) Koch, Heather (Duncan) Matheson, Lois (Marcel) Ongenae, son Sanford (Pam) Stiff and daughter-in-law Brenda Stiff. Doreen will be especially missed by her 9 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Surviving sisters Connie (Don) Teed, Beebe (Paul) Fedoruk will have to cope with the loss of another loved one.
Doreen worked hard her entire life. Mom was a strong, independent woman who single handedly raised her four children in Ontario and then back to her home province of Manitoba. Doreen loved to dance, play cards and travel. In her retirement years she volunteered as a companion to seniors. She was also an active member of St. Paul’s Anglican Church and the RCL Ladies Auxiliary (over 50 years) until her health began to limit her lifestyle.
Thank you to the staff at Misericordia Interim Care and Rosewood Lodge Personal Care Home for caring for our Mother with kindness, respect and dignity. Mom had “special angels” at both of these facilities – you know who you are.” Kisses were Mom’s constant request. We would also express our thanks to Dr. Kerr Graham for his compassionate direction of care for our Mom.
Cremation has taken place and we hope to celebrate Doreen’s 95 years as soon as Covid restrictions have been eased. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Doreen’s memory to a charity of your choice.
