JARVIE, Reverend Doris (Peace)
On Tuesday, October 13, 2009, Reverend Doris Jarvie passed away peacefully in her sleep. Doris would have celebrated her ninety fifth birthday this November. Doris will be lovingly remembered by her sister Gladi Warburton and her two nieces, Vallerie and Karia Dearden, her grand-nephew Dean McGee, his wife Rose and children Rebecca, Vanessa and Calvin, step children Bev Ross and husband Cal, Mark Jarvie and wife Linda, Ian Jarvie and wife Val, Gordon Jarvie and wife Erika, and grandchildren Lisa, Matthew, Kenton, Mitchell, Suzanne, Jon, Geoff, Tim, Danny and Tom. Born in Calgary in 1914 Reverend Doris Jarvie dedicated her life to preaching the Word of God and helping those in need. She is fondly remembered by many as being “like a mother to me”. During the course of her long and fruitful career Doris touched many individual lives both in the numerous churches she started and in her weekly radio broadcast. As well, Doris had a deep concern over the plight of orphan children in India, the Philippines and Haiti and was a long time contributor to their cause. Doris is predeceased by her first husband Norman and her second husband Fred.
A funeral service in memory of Doris will be held on Thursday, October 22 at 2pm at Valley View Memorial Gardens, 14660 72nd Avenue, Surrey BC with Reverend Jean Lind and Reverend Paul McPhail officiating. Doris was a sweet spirit who will be sorely missed.
