KARTON Doris Eleanor (Shellborn)

May 27, 1932 – February 23, 2013

Doris was welcomed peacefully into the arms of Jesus, surrounded by her family at McKenney Creek Hospice on February 23, 2013. She was born May 27, 1932 in Erickson, Manitoba. She moved to BC with her beloved husband Bill (predeceased in 2001), where they raised their 5 daughters: Laureen (Carlyle), Iris (Ned), Janice (Tom), Melanie (Craig) and CarolAnn (Blair). A devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother she will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. The family takes comfort in knowing that there is a joyous reunion taking place in heaven, with her many family members and friends who have gone on before her.

Her family is so thankful for the numerous doctors and health care professionals who made it possible for Doris to enjoy an active last year, building long lasting memories with her family.
