We regret to announce the death at Hospice House in Vernon on December 26, 2008, of Doreen Frances Cushing (nee Duggan), at the age of 79 years. Doreen was born in Kelowna, and was a longtime resident of Oyama. She was predeceased in 1990 by her beloved husband, Alan. Doreen will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughters, Susan (Rhys) Nye of Port Alberni and Tracy (Mike) Berube of Montreal; grandchildren: Danielle, Dallas, Justin and Elliot; her twin brother Doug (Mary) Duggan and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members. A private family gathering will be held. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Doreen to the S P C A, Box 250, Vernon V1T 6M2.
