Wanda Dorval lost her courageous battle with cancer on May 20th, 2015 at the age of 57. She was the beloved wife and best friend of Rene Dorval of Medicine Hat. She leaves to cherish her memory Cheryl (Darren) Fischer (Sydney, Jaxon); Garett (Sheree) Pilgrim (Samantha, Luke); Ashly (Ryan) Davey (Quinn); her mother, Marlene Selensky; three sisters, Debbie (Les) Emms, Joan (Brent) Baron, Karla (Kurt) Silbernagel; her father-in-law Joseph Dorval; brothers-in-law, Denis (Justine), Guy, Claude, Jules (Cindy); sister-in-law, Doris (Greg) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father, Lenard Selensky; her mother-in-law, Marie Dorval; brother-in-law Allain and our dear friend Aunty Dot. Wanda was born in Mankota, Saskatchewan on September 28, 1957. As the oldest of four girls she loved horseback riding, playing ball and being outside. Her banking career started right out of high school and continued over the next 35 years. She prided herself on great customer service and built strong relationships with co-workers and clients. Seldom could you go out in public and not meet a client whose life had not been touched by Wanda. Wanda loved life and lived it to the fullest. Even in her weakest moments she kept a brave face and a positive attitude. She cherished her moments spent with family, friends and especially children. She took pride in her home, enjoyed travelling, entertaining and yelling BINGO on Monday night. Wanda was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunty and friend. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Family and friends will gather for prayers in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. The funeral mass will be celebrated in Holy Family Parish (1451Strachan Road SE) on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. with Fr.

  1. Ken and Joan Thares says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Wanda was so helpful and friendly to us at the bank for many years and she made me feel like a friend of hers at St. Thomas School where I got to know her through you, Garrett. She will be very missed by many.
