They had several moves in their life together and moved to Carberry in 1955 where they finally settled permanently. Doris loved sewing, knitting, gardening, canning, curling, but most of all spending time with family and friends. Doris and Hawkon also spent many years camping and fishing at Manipogo Park where they had many dear friends. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Auxiliary, The Order of the Eastern Star and the Carberry Curling Club to mention just a few. Doris had many friends but in her later years at the Marshall Memorial there were two very special friends, Linda and Petra, and together they shared many visits and stories over a good cup of tea.
Doris was predeceased by her twin Dorothy, husband Hawkon, sister Betty, daughter Shirley, son-in-law Darius and grandson Jack. Left to mourn her loss are 4 children, 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 6 great great grandchildren.
