November 1, 1923 - April 28, 2023

In Loving Memory

Doris Opal Nelson (nee Omoth)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful, loving mother, sister,

grandmother and great grandmother on April 28th, 2023, at 99 years young. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at Ridgeview Lodge, Kamloops.

Doris was born Nov 1st, 1923, at home on the farm near Milestone SK. She had seen many changes in her lifetime; from horse-drawn plows to full electric cars and she took these changes in stride. She was quiet, generous, and kind. Having lived through it all she was a very progressive and resilient woman who persevered no matter what life threw her way. Doris lived independently, moving to Kamloops after almost 50 years in Surrey at the age of 91, to be a resident at Chartwell Ridgepointe. Unfortunately, a fall in 2022 proved to be a life-changing event.

Survived by her daughters Brenda and Myrna, son-in-law Frank, brother Arnold, as well as grandchildren Vanessa (Michael), Jared, Ryan (Sarah), Cory (Gloria), Brent (Krista) and Will. She also had five great grandchildren who she adored. Predeceased by her daughter, Sonia (1995), husband Derek (1996), son-in-law, Ross (2016), brother Marvin (2019), and sister Bernice (2021) as well as many other family & friends along the way.

Special thanks to her caregiver and friend, Anne. Also, to Dr. A. Wynne, LPN Nicole, John, Kathy, Brad, Nadine and Sue. Your caring ways made her life easier during a very challenging year! Doris will be interred next to Derek in Surrey at a later date. She is now at peace, and watching over us with unconditional love, as always.

We love and miss you so much Mom ….

Until we meet again!
