Doris Diane Zborowsky

21 September, 196210 September, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the tragic and sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, Doris Zborowsky on September 10, 2020 near Ile Des Chenes, MB at the age of 57 years.

Born on September 21, 1962 in Ashern, Manitoba, Doris was predeceased by her father Albert, infant brother Ronald, father-in-law Cyril, and beloved dog Kili.

Doris is survived by her husband Dean Carriere; daughter Katrina Zborowsky; mother Linda; sisters Debbie (Garry), Marilyn (Adrian), Becky (Tim), and Gail (Joe); mother-in-law Fran; sister-in-law Cheryl (Richard); and numerous relatives and close friends. Doris grew up on the family farm near Moosehorn, MB and moved to Winnipeg after high school for employment. Then after retiring from a successful career with Canada Post, she started another one in project management with JLL. Though she had a long working career she did enjoy her time away from work. She travelled the world visiting places like Turkey, Iceland, South Africa, Germany and England to name a few. From trekking to Machu Picchu (Peru), Everest base camp (Nepal) to riding a camel in the Sahara (Morocco) for a night’s sleep under the stars. Mountain climbing and summiting the highest peaks in Argentina (Aconcagua), Italy (Gran Paradiso), Tanzania (Kilimanjaro), Russia (Elbrus). Relaxing in Thailand, Cayman, experiencing inner peace in Bali, seeing her climbing friends in Alaska, she did it all. Through these travels, she met wonderful people, touched their hearts with her magical spirit, and made everlasting friends. Yet, the biggest adventure she took was to live the life of her dreams.

Her drive for excellence was in everything she did. Her health, her home, her outlook on life. An avid cyclist and overall fitness enthusiast. A gardener in that she created a beautiful yard with flowers in abundance and a hearty vegetable garden. A chef, creating divine meals for family and friends, and always looking to try new things. An artisan, creating wonderful items through sewing, knitting and crocheting with her own distinct personal style.

Of all her accomplishments and all that she had seen and done, her greatest joy was her daughter. Our lives will never be the same without Doris’s presence – gone, but never forgotten.

To Doris’ family and friends. I remember the day I met Doris at Canada Post. She was so friendly with a pretty smile. Any time I saw her she always had her smile on and we would chat for a couple of moments. Doris was kind and happy and that’s how I’ll remember her with her beautiful smile. My sincere condolences to Doris’ family. May you Rest In Peace Doris.
