MacKinnon, Doris Marie (nee Ross)
Born September 18, 1925
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Doris on June 6, 2015 in her 90th year. She was pre-deceased by her husband of 53 years, Mac. She is survived by her brother Bill Ross (Millie), her 4 children Linda, Ken (Donna), Bonnie (Kevin) and Ron (Susan), as well as her 5 grandchildren and her 5 great grandchildren. She was born in Chatham, New Brunswick but moved to Neepawa, Manitoba near the beginning of WW2. At age 17 she worked at the British Commonwealth Air Training Base as a flight recorder and made a number of meaningful friendships with pilots, some of whom gave their lives overseas. After the war she moved to BC with her family and worked as a telephone operator for BC Tel. She was married in 1947 and remained at home, providing for her children & grandchildren. Throughout her life she could be described as energetic, loving and ever hospitable. She will be greatly missed by everyone for her great sense of humour and her giving nature.
A celebration of life will be held locally on Saturday June 27th. Anyone wishing to attend may contact the family. Donations will be gratefully accepted to the Alzheimers Society on in her memory.
