Doreen Mary Olive Pearson (nee Ringguth) of Neepawa, Manitoba passed away quietly on March 4, 2021 at Country Meadows Personal Care Home at the age of 96 years.
Doreen Mary Olive was born on April 8th, 1924, the eldest daughter of Bill and Azon Ringguth of Carduff, SK. She went to Millions School and later attended Carnduff School. Upon completing school she became a school teacher. In 1947 she married Donald Pearson of Oxbow. They moved to the home farm and together they raised 5 sons.
In 1964, the family moved to a farm outside of Neepawa. They kept busy with cattle, sheep, horses and boys. When they moved to town she was employed at Eaton’s, Fenwick’s and East View Lodge. She later began catering weddings and suppers. She was always busy with the boys. Like most moms, she did her share of working at the rink and ball field. Don and Doreen moved a couple of times over the years, living in The Pas and Oxbow, before moving back to Neepawa in 1996. Don passed away in 1997. Doreen moved into Kinsmen Kourts and lived there for 20+ years before moving into Country Meadows.
