Doris loved and adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and any chance to hold a baby was never missed. She loved golfing, curling, traveling and was a huge Blue Jays fan. She worked alongside Ed with the Shriners and was an active member with the UCW of Westminster United Church. Doris was the glue of the family gatherings.
