Holly-Shawn-Waylon-Twyla. We are so sorry for the passing of your mom. We will all miss her very much. She was the one we went to get information on family or friends we had forgot a name or some thing we needed to know. She could alway come up with the answer. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Love Uncle Dale & Aunt Florence

Our sincere condolences. We will dearly miss Aunty Doris and her cheek pinching trait, like Karin mentioned. I remember going to Aunty Doris and Uncle Lanny’s place on the farm. Aunty Doris was a great baker. I have many favourite recipes Aunty Doris shared with me when they lived in Lamont. It was so great to spend time with them in Lamont and she always welcomed us with open arms. Always remembered and never forgotten. Rest In Peace Aunty Doris.

Special Memories - just a day or 2 ago- haha!
I call us double cousins. This was taken at U.Leonard & A.Jean's farm (see barn, etc., in background). We picked Doris up to go to Radville. My Dad, Floyd Blackmore, is behind the wheel & Mom, Alice, would have taken pic. (her writing on it.) Think we were off to see an Elvis Presley matinee, at theatre in Radville. And believe me, that didn't happen, often. Exciting!
Don't you love our hairdos & white socks! Love, cousin Loen Fahselt - Mannville, AB

My deepest sympathy to all of Doris’s family, she was a wonderful lady, soft spoken and always a smile. Met your mom while a patient with your dad a few years back in Regina.
Since both from Weyburn we had lots in common.
Met her the odd time while we shopped but more recently was able to see her again when she moved to Parkway Lodge. My friend lived actress the hall so was able to chat a bit on every visit. Was saddened to see her health deteriorating so fast and last visit she was on palliative care. Bless you all during these times but cherish her memories she left a lot of good ones for sure.

Deepest sympathy to all Doris ‘s family. I have many fond memories: one is that we both enjoyed working on the Blackmore history. Someone mentioned the cheek pinching , I remember her biting her tongue as she did that. Cherish your family memories and may you be comforted by each other

I have so many memories . One of my first and I am sure other cousins remember this is getting your cheeks pinched . My most recent memories are the ones I'll cherish the most. The drives we took, the meals we shared, and the stories you shared about family and friends.
