Doreen Ethel Buxton
Doreen Ethel Buxton passed away peacefully with her daughter by her side on Monday, October 4th, 2021. Doreen was born in Brandon, Manitoba on April 24th, 1929. She was an enthusiastic student, especially fond of high school in Prince Albert, SK keeping in touch with many of her high school friends throughout her life. She worked with the phone company and then in a bank, where she met more lifelong friends and her husband John. Doreen loved being a homemaker and a CPR wife. She was very active with the NDP working on campaigns in her younger years and was an enthusiast voter interested in politics until her death. Doreen lost most of her vision to macular degeneration but continued to be a voracious reader with the aid of hundreds of audio books. She was an active WaWa member, enjoyed other local ladies clubs and was a happy member of many bowling leagues. Her favorite activities were her walks, lunches and birthday celebrations with her close group of friends. She was very saddened by the loss of friends over the years especially missing her dear friends, Ish Anderson and Lorraine Hunter who she spoke of often. Doreen enjoyed yearly camping vacations with her young family to Alberta, BC, Idaho and Washington. A special time in her life was RVing with husband John and grandchildren Vanessa and Matthew on annual trips to BC. She was predeceased by her parents; step-sister, Norma; beloved sister, Dorothy (Dot); loving husband of 54 years, John; son, Jack; and grandson, Matthew. Doreen is survived by her daughter, Lori (Ron) Keesh of Portland, OR; granddaughter, Vanessa (Tereza) Lamont-Anderson and great-granddaughter, Ellie of Victoria, BC; special niece, Allison Delaney of Ottawa, ON; brother, Don (Pat) Carter of Richmond, BC; special friend, Cathy Lucas of OK Falls, BC; caregiver/friend and the person that helped Doreen live her dream of staying in the home that she loved, Star (Art) Dueck of Moose Jaw, SK; and neighbor extraordinaire, Sally Horsnall and family. In keeping with Doreen’s wishes a Private Family Service will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7 in honor of the many special dogs who shared her life. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Gary McDowell, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
Lori and Ron and family, so sorry for your loss.
So very sorry for your loss Lori. Doreen was my very first example of a true “lady.” We were very fortunate to grow up in a neighborhood during a simple safe time with moms like Doreen watching over our childhood. Memories of reading comic books in your tent trailer and board games in the basement, tetherball in the backyard and stellar birthday parties shaped my own years as a mom. I miss your mom like my own. Much love to you and Ron and your family.
Our Sincere Sympathy to you Lori and Ron.
Feel so blessed I got to know your mom and enjoyed the 7 1/2 years I worked for her. She was a great lady , we had so many good times together . She will always hold a special spot in my heart.
Our Sincere Sympathy
Art and Star Dueck
