Doe was born on November 22, 1942, at Atholville, N.B., and passed away peacefully on August 6, 2011, with family at her side, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Doe, and her husband Bob, after his RCAF career, moved to Midway, B.C., on June 3, 1974, when Bob accepted the position of the Municipal Administrator, raising their three daughters, making Midway, to what is still considered “home”. Doe enjoyed most in life, having her family and friends close, working in her gardens, camping, fishing and always having a full house.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Bob; daughters: Denise (Kirk), Michelle (Chris) and Kim (Rob); brothers: Eddie, Arven and Leonard; sisters, Kay and Leona; grandchildren: Jasmune, Tanner, Tianna, Michael, Jordan, Shawndel and Shannon; step-grandchildren: Shanon, Jamie and Robert; great-grandchildren, Quinton and Saiedy; step-great-grandchildren: Lucas, Brooklyn, Cameron, Samantha, Jayda and Emma; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

“Family is the compass of Life.” We will miss you … xox

In reaching out a hand of love,

To touch another heart;

A seed of love is planted,

And so the circle starts.

A never-ending circle,

Will keep on touching hearts;

As long as seeds of love still bloom,

That were planted at the start.

Arrangements entrusted to Grand Forks Funeral Home.
