Doris PEARCE

PEARCE Doris. Doris Marie Pearce, known to her loved ones as Marie, surrounded by her family passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 at Royal Columbian Hospital after suffering a brain aneurism. Marie was born March 19, 1943 in Edmonton, Alberta. She spent her early years in the prairies before moving East to Ontario where she met her husband, Dave Pearce. They lovingly raised their three children. Marie made the world beautiful through the aromas and tastes of her cooking, the colour and textures of the knitting, quilts and sewing expressing her creativity. She also was a gifted musician and expressed herself through organ and piano music. Spending her later years serving her family and friends in Abbotsford and Calgary, Marie continued her vocation with grace and elegance to her very last day. An exceptional wife and companion to her husband Dave, a loving and generous mother to her two sons Jeff and Steve (Tina) and her daughter Donita (Leroy). She was also a most affectionate and reliable grandmother to her 8 grandchildren Jake, Joel, Lise, Maggie, Alma, Ethan, Libby and Joey. She is survived by and will be missed by a large extended family. Marie Pearce was the perfect example of a godly wife, mother, grandmother and friend and we’re thankful to God for the way she shared her life with the many who knew her. A Memorial Service was held on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC. Donations may be made to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation.
