OBITUARY

Doreen Mae Price

June 9, 1941September 2, 2020

Doreen Price (nee Cooper) passed away peacefully, with family by her side, at Cascade Hospice on September 2, 2020.

Mom left this world to join her Mother and Father Irene & Ray Cooper. Leaving to mourn her is her devoted, loving husband of 56 years Darrell, three loving children Cheryl (Aaron), Brenda (Clayton) and Michael (Angie); four grandchildren, Brenton (Isabelle), Meagan, Larisa and Brandon; three great grandchildren Logan, Carter and Mila.

Mom was an only child and dreamed of having a large family. While she didn’t have a large biological family, she always made every friend that visited feel like family. There was always an extra potato for the pot or a piece of meat no matter what the circumstances of the day were.

Living in many communities in BC as a result of being married to an RCMP officer, Mom always made the best of every situation and us kids knew when a “special meal” was prepared we were on the move again. Mom was very happy when we were able to plant roots in Agassiz in 1983. Doreen managed the Pharmasave in Hope for many years and enjoyed weekend get-a-ways with Darrell to Manning Park and other local campsites. In 2013 Mom was recognized by the RCMP with the “2nd Man” Commendation. This was for her commitment and dedication for the many years of assisting Dad at the smaller RCMP detachments that we lived in.

After retirement Mom and Dad spent their summers traveling in their RV and spent a good portion in 100 Mile House where they became summer work campers. During these years they met a great many people who became, and remain, very close friends to this day.

Doreen loved her family and being close with them. She enjoyed the outdoors, camping, “happy hour” with friends around a campfire.

A very special thanks to the doctors & nursing staff at the Cascade Hospice for their loving care, making Mom comfortable during her last days.

If friends so desire, please give a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack.

When times allow, a memorial service for Mom will be announced.

Doreen was with me since the day i was born. I remember Doreen and Darrell giving me a stuffed monkey for my 1st birthday i ever had. Doreen was like a grandma to me, we were really close and we shared a lot of laughter and smiles together, she had a way of making friends feel like family.
Throughout my whole life that i knew her, she always had a positive attitude and a heart made out of pure gold. She always wanted to know how I and my family was doing, and she always wanted to know whether i painted any new paintings or how hockey is going. I remember every time i would see her, she would always say “wow you have gotten so tall” and i would just smile and give her a hug and say “yeah i know” with a laugh hidden in my voice. Doreen was truly an amazing person and I will never forget the sound of her laugh or the light in her eyes when she would talk about something she was excited about. Her passing has effected me in ways I can’t describe, but she will forever be in my heart And never be forgotten. May she rest in peace.

I was so saddened to hear of Doreens passing. I was privileged to share a small part of my life with her being part of the same RCMP family and workmates. Doreen had a huge impact on me in so many ways when I first moved to Agassiz. We shared stories car pooling together to work as well as the social aspects we shared. Her influence on me goes beyond words and I’m glad I had the opportunity years back to tell her. Doreen was a remarkable person. Her no nonsense approach, her kindness, her laugh, her love for family were an inspiration. To say she will be missed does not cover the range of emotions for those who loved and knew her. I understand only to well what this lose feels like. My deepest condolences to Darrell and family. Sending hugs from afar. Liz.
