BREWER, Doris Mary
It is with great sadness that, after a courageous battle with dementia we announce the passing of Doris Mary Brewer, at the age of 83. She is survived by her daughter Gail James, son-in-law Alan James, grandson Quentin James and sister-in-law Hilda Lesmeister. Doris was predeceased by her husband Douglas Brewer, her sister Margaret Clifton, brothers Walter and Michael Lesmeister. Doris was born in Saskatchewan but moved to Kelowna at a very young age. She saw many changes over the 75 years that she lived in the city. Doris was an avid gardener and enjoyed walking, baking for her family, and always had a smile and a helping hand for her friends. One of her greatest pleasures was baking apple pies for her grandson. The family would like to thank the nurses and care aids at Spring Valley care center for the loving care they gave Doris in her final days. Their kindness and devotion to their vocation is greatly appreciated. At Doris’s request a Celebration of her life will be held at the home of Gail & Alan James, at 1701 Vineyard Drive in West Kelowna, on Sunday, May 1, 2011 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Please drop by and share your memoires. Should family and friends so desire, donations can be made in Doris’s name to the Kelowna SPCA or if you are lucky enough to still have your mother with you please send her flowers with love.
