8 August, 192616 April, 2021

Maureen Margaret Doucette Age 94 of Digby passed away in Tide View Terrace on April 16, 2021. Born in Aldershot, England she was a daughter of the late James and Margaret Weir.

Mum was 13 when World War II began. She left school in her teens and worked as a cashier. At 17, she met our Dad, who was in the Canadian army and was stationed at Aldershot. He was deployed to France and travelled through Belgium and Holland. He returned to England to be married on May 5, 1945, 3 days before Victory in Europe (VE) Day. Following the war, she came to Halifax aboard the Queen Mary and arrived at Pier 21 in July of 1946. They settled in the Digby area, near Dad’s family. Over the years, she became the Matriarch of 5 generations. Mum was a career cashier, working at various locations where she got to know many, many people. After retirement, she did volunteer work, mostly at Bethany Bargain Bin. In 2014, she moved to Tideview Terrace where she made new friends with residents and staff. She was known to have a unique personality, humour, wit and had a vast knowledge of many topics. We would like to thank all the staff that have worked In Snows House over the years. Especially for the last few weeks, their love and compassion shown to Mum was greatly appreciated.

We were sorry to hear your mum had passed away. She was such a wonderful lady who loved people and especially her family. She was always so positive and always had a smile on her face. It was an honor to know her as she touched so many lives. I always think of her when I make date squares as she enjoyed them so much. May all the special memories you each have of her bring you great comfort in time.
With our deepest sympathy,
Maxine and Willis

Sue, So sorry to hear about your mom. I of course met her many times at her various cashier positions. She reminded me of my own mom who was also a British war bride. My deepest condolences.
