Doris Hannigan February 14, 1920 – March 30, 2018 Doris Hannigan, our loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully in Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, in the early hours of March 30. Survived by her devoted husband, Terry; sister Lillian Findlay; daughters Holly (Larry) Campbell, Kamloops and Heather (Ted) McCain, Maple Ridge; grandchildren Brent (Sandra) Campbell, Erin (Bruce) Hobkirk, Andrea (Cameron) Falt, Sarah (Vinny Kumar) McCain, Scott (Michele Logan) Campbell, Ian Campbell, Joel (Marina Misuric) McCain, Lachlan Campbell; 6 great grandchildren; cousins Edith (Les) Wilson and Pat Dorsey; many nieces and nephews; lots of friends. Predeceased by brother Arthur Baldwin and sister Ivy Beaton. Doris was born in Torbay Newfoundland to Marshall and Irene (nee Cole) Baldwin on Valentine’s Day, 1920. In 1923, the family moved to Lethbridge, and then to Burnaby in 1925. She was proud of her Newfoundland roots and made several trips “back home”. Doris and Terry were married on May 20, 1950 – they shared a deep abiding love for almost 68 years and were an inspiration to all who knew them. Family holidays in the 1950’s and 60’s were spent on Hornby Island; Mom had some of the best times of her life in that magical place. They were charter members of Burnaby Winter Club and active in Burnaby Power Squadron. For close to 40 years they enjoyed cruising the BC Coast; they knew every harbour and anchorage from Desolation Sound to the Gulf Islands. Mom always said their boat “could sleep six and drink 25”! Doris volunteered for the Victorian Order of Nurses, the IODE and the Cancer Society. She knit, sewed, smocked, macraméd, covered shoes, curled, skated, waterskied, gardened, played bridge, made wine and friends. After Dad retired in 1975 they travelled and saw the world. In June 2017, Doris and Terry moved from Burnaby to Kamloops. She embraced the new chapter of their lives wholeheartedly and thoroughly enjoyed her new surroundings. Heartfelt thanks to Royal Inland Hospital Emergency Department and 6 North and to Ponderosa Lodge Rehab for the care and compassion you gave our Mom. To the amazing staff at Kamloops Seniors Village and the wonderful caregivers with Interior Health: thank you for helping Mom live her life to the fullest. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday May 26 11:00am – 2:00 pm, Burnaby Mountain Clubhouse, 7600 Halifax Street, Burnaby. Should friends desire, donations may be made to Diabetes Canada or a charity of your choice.

Terry, Holly & Heather:

Thanks for the many happy memories of good times on Hornby Island ( was it really 50-60 years ago?) and the odd Grey Cup party at your home in Burnaby. Your Mom and Dad, along with the Whelens, made those years especially wonderful. I remember learning to waterski on Howe Sound behind the Won Yen(?) Crazy! All the best to your families......Doug & Maureen Wint, Esquimalt.
