Obituary for Doreen Iris Stephenson

With sadness, we announce the passing of Doreen Iris Stephenson (nee Carr) on June 17, 2020. She left this world to join Fred, her husband of 68 years.

Doreen was born in Winnipeg, in 1928 to Gertrude and Clarence Carr. She spent her early years in Gainsborough, Saskatchewan; it was there that she began her lifelong friendship with Wanda Rutherford (nee Raeside). Her family relocated to Minnedosa when she was a child and lived there until moving to Winnipeg when Doreen was 15. It was in Winnipeg where Doreen met Fred, shortly after moving there. She was predeceased by her brother Don Carr; the Carr siblings shared a special bond.

Doreen’s five children: Jeff (Julie); Tim (Pat); Scott (Jeannette); Perry (Traci) and April (Michelle) would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time. Specifically, the staff at West Park Manor.
Doreen has seven grandchildren (and spouses) and nine great-grandchildren. She had a way of making each of them feel special and had many of them convinced she was magic, like Mary Poppins, for much of their childhood.

Doreen had a long career in nursing, filling many roles from bed-side nurse to supervisor and finally, as nursing home administrator. She proudly assisted in the opening of Oakview Place and was an active member of her Grace grad alumnae (class of 1950). Her love and concern for people was present in everything she did. She was a long-standing member of Westworth United Church and sang in the choir for many decades.
In retirement, Doreen spent her time painting, reading, mall-walking and baking endless banana breads. Her summers were spent at her cottage on Malachi Lake (fondly nicknamed “Loch Side Croft”); baking pies with Malachi blueberries was an art form she perfected. She was rarely seen without her knitting needles, always in the process of making a blanket for someone. She was always ready for a visit and enjoyed celebrating the many milestones and accomplishments of her beloved family and friends. A wonderful life lived with love.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to Westworth United Church or West Broadway Community Ministry in her honor.

Given the current circumstances, a private service will take place with Doreen’s immediate family.
