Aunt Doris was a beautiful person so funny and always entertaining! If you needed to have a laugh or light up a room - Aunt Doris could do it! I remember at family dinners at Grandma Tuck’s in Harriston - she would always be pulling some prank on someone! You never let your guard down lol Carol Burnett has nothing on you Aunt Doris - you are just as funny! Keep making everyone laugh! Xo ❤️ R.I.P.

We are truly saddened to hear of Doris' passing but are glad to know she is reunited with the love of her life, Lyle. Doris was such a "full of life" person who always had a smile on her face and brought joy to everyone around her. In our family she was referred to as Aunt Doris by our son, Chad. Her jokes and antics will always be remembered. Rest in peace Doris.
