Doreen was predeceased by her husband Don, youngest daughter Karen and parents Len and Molly Mufford. Doreen was born in Royal Columbian Hospital and spent the majority of her life in Langley.

Doreen was a joyful, optimistic person with a caring, giving spirit and a ready smile. She truly made the most of every day and always tried to look for the best in people. Family and friends were a very important part of Doreen’s life. She was deeply loved and will be sadly missed!
