Sarah Doris received her “heavenly promotion” at the age of 87 on Friday morning (May 21). Loving family (Tom, husband of 62 years, daughter Marianne), friends (Cathy Hadden & Menno Home staff) gathered by her bedside. Sarah Doris is the last of the three MacAllister girls, leaving behind husband Tom, children Bruce & Marianne, grandchildren Melissa, Laura, Matthew, Kieran, Juliesa & great-grandchild, Tiara. Sarah Doris was born in Toronto, Ontario; she attended secretarial school and a 1-year program at Canadian Bible Institute prior to working as a secretary for Maple Leaf Milling & the Oshawa Clinic. Doris and Tom married Sept. 4, 1948, after meeting on a blind date in 1945. Doris impacted many lives through her spirit of hospitality, as a Sunday School teacher and Youth Sponsor.
