Doris Georgina Duckett
13 September , 1927 – 16 June , 2019
We are sad to announce the death of our Mother, Doris Duckett at the age of 91, on the 16th of June 2019, at the Rosewood/Marrwood care facility.
Doris loved her gardens and belonged to the Fraser Valley Gladiola Society. She volunteered for the Surrey Memorial Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, where with her talent of knitting and crocheting, she donated many baby outfits and blankets.
The neighbours always enjoyed seeing the new colour of the house she painted annually. It wasn’t unusual to see her outside working while listening to Wilf Carter belting out a tune on the stereo with the aroma of baking and cooking in the air.
Doris was born in Coronation, Alberta where she grew up, later she moved to B.C. where she worked on a dairy farm milking cows and later working at the Royal Columbian Hospital.
Doris leaves behind her husband of 71 years, Wilf Duckett, and her 6 children Wendy (Tonya Stewart) Duckett, Ken (Renee) Duckett, Deb (Ron) Cooper, Randy (Marilyn) Duckett, Bon Dart and Steve Duckett, 14 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews. She is survived by her brother Tom (Joyce) Wraight and sister Linda Wraight. Sadly, Doris was pre-deceased by her son-in-law, Peter Dart.
Thank you to the staff at Rosewood/Marwood for the care of our Mother. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Society, or a charity of your choice in Doris’ memory.

Doris Duckett (Wraight) was my sister for my 71 years and counting.
Doe remembered the day my sister Leona and I were born

We always loved it when Doe and Wilf would come to our house with all the kids.
We also spent many happy times at there place.I know that Doe is with Fred,May,Donna and Leona having a fabulous reunion.
My sincere condolences to Wilf and family.

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I will always remember the fun times I had in the Duckett home. Sunday morning breakfast was the best - I had never seen so many pancakes at a table. Doris was always so kind to us boisterous kids. I often think of all the good times. Jo
