SEWELL, Doris McKendrick (nee Page)

Born in Romsey, England in 1912, she emigrated to Calgary at the age of 6. She and her family moved to Vancouver in 1935. She raised her family in South Vancouver while working as a Private Secretary and then a Legal Assistant. At around 50, she began to lose her hearing and by 65 became very hard of hearing. She joined the Vancouver League for the Hard of Hearing and was a member of that group for 30 years. She lived in Maple Ridge for 19 years. She leaves to mourn her son Gordon McKendrick, daughter Betty McKendrick, grandchildren Dawn Beavon and Lorne and David McKendrick. Thanks to the staff at MRSV who worked tirelessly though understaffed and underfunded. A donation in her name can be made to the Vancouver League for the Hard of Hearing,2125 W. 7th Ave., Vancouver, V6K 1X9
