Annie Katherine Doris Flowers


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.

Dear Ken, Theresa, Gary, Don and families,

Your Mom (Grandmother, Great-Grandmother) was a very special lady. I’ve known her for over 65 years since she and my cousin Bernie got married and we all became friends. I feel so priveledged and thankful for out visit together last summer at the cottage. Thinking of you all at this very sad time. May your happy memories give you peace. We were honoured to make a donation to the Cross Cancer Institute in Doris’ memory.
With Heartfelt Condolences,
Aunt Edna Hawkins and family

My condolences to the family on the loss of Doris. I had many good times with her especially on the golf course at Windermere and Red Mountain Ranch where we tried our best to win at the member guest. We came very close but ended up in a tie. Graham and I had many great visits with her and Bernie both here and in Arizona. She will be missed.
