It is with great sadness the family of Doris Flowers announces her passing on December 20, 2016.
Doris will be dearly missed by her children: Ken Flowers (Jeannie), Theresa Degaust (Dan), Gary Flowers (Joy), and Don Flowers (Debra); eight grandchildren, Greg (Jenny), Michael (Katherine), Andrew (Lauren), Katherine (Noel), Sarah (David), Jonathan, Erik, and Zoe; five great-grandchildren: Kennedy, Jack, William, Benjamin, and Owen. She is survived by her siblings: Don Nielsen (Alicia), June Wayne (Merv),
Shirley Feist (Bernie); sisters-in-law: Connie Nielsen and Helen Flowers; brothers-in-law, Jack Flowers (Carol), Stan Flowers (Helen), and Art Flowers (Jean); as well as numerous extended family and close friends.
Doris is predeceased by her husband, Bernie Flowers; her parents, Rose and Kris Nielsen; brother, Ted Nielsen; and brother-in-law, Jim Flowers.
Doris will be fondly remembered for her sharp wit and competitive spirit, working on the daily crossword puzzle, her enjoyment of travelling to foreign places and, of course, her love in playing a round of golf with her many friends at the Windermere Golf & Country Club in Edmonton and the Red Mountain Ranch Country Club in Mesa, Arizona.
The family wishes to thank all those for their support and kindness and to extend special thanks to Dr. Pickle for his compassionate care of Doris during these past months.
In keeping with Doris’s wishes, there will not be a funeral service. Cremation has taken place at her request and a private family gathering will be held to celebrate Doris’s life at a later date.
If family or friends so desire, they can make a donation in memory of Doris to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 1Z2.
