Relation: My cousin

So sad to lose a great cousin. The matriarch of the Dochuk family.
We were looking forward to seeing her this spring.
She was an important contributor to the family and her
community. An inspiration to all of us.

We will always remember her smile.

From: Paulette & Dave Mistol
Relation: Friends with Dwayne and Joanne

To Dwayne, Joanne and the boys. Dave and I were both saddened by the news of your mother’s passing upon our return from holidays. Dave loved to tease her in the kitchen while she helped the woman prepare the lovely catered meal to both Christopher and Kelsey’s weddings. We also have fond memories of her as she sometimes travelled on the bus with all of us to numerous hockey games. She was a special lady and will be missed by many. Take care in the days and months ahead.
