Doreen was born to Jake and Bernice Geiron at Empress, Alberta on December 28, 1938 and passed away peacefully at the age of 82 at Oyen Hospital.
Doreen grew up in Acadia Valley and later went to Hanna, Alberta to take a secretarial course and boarded at the nunnery, upon returning she worked for John Lidjsman at the Oyen town office and also the insurance company.
Doreen married the love of her life Ronald on May 28th, 1960 in Acadia Valley and soon they moved to the family farm where they were later blessed with five children.
Her devotion to God and nurturing heart guided her life, always watching over family and friends. She had a very strong Catholic faith that gave her the strength to live her life to the fullest, Doreen was a long time CWL member and taught catechism.
Doreen loved to entertain and was the best cook and baker, you were pretty well guaranteed a fresh homemade bun or one of those delicious cinnamon buns when you walked through the door and also a pan or two to take home.
She loved being outdoors tending to her flowers and her massive garden that she would grow and then take pleasure in canning her crop until all hours of the night.
In the winter months you could find Doreen at the rink where she loved to curl and everyone knew not to get in her way when she did her take out!
