Doreen Cheek

Doreen Vivian Cheek

Jan. 7, 1928 – Feb. 5, 2012

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, nana and great-grandmother Doreen Cheek. Doreen was born and raised in Chilliwack, B.C. and married her high school sweetheart Gordon 64 years ago. Doreen and Gordon lived in Chilliwack until the late ‘60’s when they decided to venture into the interior of B.C. In the early ‘70’s after a short stay in Smithers and Houston they moved to Williams Lake, which quickly became home.

Doreen was the ultimate homemaker and a mom who

always put her family first. She will be so dearly

missed by husband Gordon, sons Brent (Phyllis),

Bruce (Lorraine), Jeff (Pat) and daughter Loreen

(Mike) Williston. Her pride and joy were her grandchildren

Jay (Chantelle), Tyler (Joanna), Mitch, Brett

(Brianna), Jody, Jennifer (Ben), Stacey (Jarrod), Lee

(Cheryl), Kyle (Ashley) and Steven as well as the

ultimate great grandchildren Hannah, Paige, Lucas and

Brooke who came along.

The family would like to express a special thank you

for the years of attentive care given by Dr. Fedor. We

would also like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to

the nurses and staff of the Cariboo Memorial Hospital

and Deni House for the incredible care and compassion

given to both Doreen and the family.

In Doreen’s memory those wishing to make donations

may do so to Central Cariboo Hospice Palliative Care

Society in her name.

A private family gathering will be held Feb. 25, 2012

to honour this very special lady.
