Doreen Alexander

Doreen Alexander passed away at Castlegar, B.C. on Sunday March 3rd at the age of 82. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Doreen was born October 11th, 1930 in Keewatin Ontario, and spent her early years in the Keewatin/Kenora area attending school, working and enjoying the lakes and outdoors. She spoke fondly of her youth often recounting lively stories and memories. Many of the friends Doreen made in the Keewatin/Kenora area remained lifelong friends.

Doreen moved to Castlegar with her husband Don in 1964 and enjoyed the rest of her days there. She spent many years at the hockey rink with her kids and was an avid sports fan enjoying hockey, baseball and curling. Doreen had several very dear friends whose company she enjoyed to the last. Her house was the place for morning coffee! She will be lovingly remembered by her family and friends for her determined feisty spirit, sense of humour, love of sports, politics and current events, and of course love of her family.

Doreen is survived by her sister Margaret Snook, children Rob (Patti), Lori (Chris), Bruce (Deb) and Bill (Carolyn), nephew Bill and grandchildren Casey, Steven and Stephanie.

You will be forever in our hearts and minds. We love you and will miss you mom.
