It is with profound sadness that the family of Doreen Davidow announces her passing on January 31st. Doreen (referred to as Dee by her family) was born on January 18, 1929 to Charlie and Rae Davidow and was the youngest of three children.
She was predeceased by her parents, brother Harold Davidow and sister Lila Goldin. She leaves to mourn several nephews and a niece, along with their families. Also left to mourn is her good friend Barbara Stillman.
Doreen worked for several companies but ultimately joined Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and retired after a long career with them.
Doreen was happiest when she was volunteering. Her service spanned many organizations, such as Jewish Women International (formerly B’nai Brith Women), Hadassah, Gwen Sector Creative Living Centre, and Meals on Wheels, earning her many service and fund-raising awards.
Doreen loved to travel and did so with her sister as well as with Barbara. Their trips took them to many places, including Europe, the British Isles, Israel, Canada, and the USA, also cruises to the Caribbean.
Burial took place at Bnay Abraham Cemetery with Rabbi Kliel Rose of Congregation Etz Chayim officiating.
Thank you to the staff at the Health Science Centre for their care during Doreen’s two month’s stay.
The family would like to thank the pallbearers: Janna Hyman, Jackie Rittberg, Ron Rittberg, Don Rittberg Murray Greenfield, Allan Elfenbein and Keith Elfenbein.
Donations in Doreen’s memory may be made to Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre or to a charity of one’s choice.
