We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on December 4, 2012, of Doreen Whitney, at the age of 86 years.

Born in England, she was a longtime resident of Toronto prior to moving to Vernon in 1983. Doreen was predeceased by her husband, Charles Roland Whitney, in 1999. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by daughter Karen (Darren) Shea, son Dave (Cathy Brown), and Anne Whitney; grandchildren Bryan, Robyn, Justin and Rachael. Doreen was a longtime member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, December 8, at 11:00 a.m., at Knox Presbyterian Church, with the Reverend Dr. Teresa Charlton officiating. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Doreen to the Baerg-McMurtrie Cancer Clinic at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

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