Doris Hilda Stengele

We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on May 23, 2009, of Doris Stengele at the age of 70 years.

Doris came to Canada from Germany in 1958, residing first in Ontario and then was a resident of Eston, Saskatchewan, prior to moving to Vernon in 1991. Doris was always a “people person” and will be missed by many friends.

She will be mourned by her loving companion and best friend, Ralph Burford; daughters Susanne (Gary) Schweitzer of Eston and Monica Stengele (Dean) of Kingston, ON; grandchildren Autumn, Lisa and Megan. She is also survived by brothers Robert (Marianne) Steinkrug, Kurt (Rosalin) Steinkrug; sister Vera Ciccone, and their families.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, May 29, at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with the Reverend Lily Watson officiating. A reception will follow in their Tea Room. In lieu of flowers, friends may make donations to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation. The family wishes to thank all her friends for the love and support over recent years.

Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
