The family of Evelyn Doreen Hobbs sadly lost a mother, grandmother, great grandmother and best friend on the morning of May 6, 2016.
Doreen was born in Salmon Arm 92 years ago. She was a selfless, determined woman who enriched the lives of those around her with her unconditional love, wisdom, and gentle humour. She had the rare gift of making everyone feel special.
It is a comfort to know that Doreen will be reunited with Bill (William Gordon Hobbs), the love of her life, who predeceased her in 1999 after 54 years of marriage. Her love of nature and its beauty will forever be remembered by her three daughters, Linda Bourrie (Vaughn), Beccy Yaron (Glenn), and Willow Tegart (Greg), and a wealth of grandchildren and great grandchildren.
A celebration of life will take place at a future date for the immediate members of her family. A heartfelt thanks to the Care Aides at Riverbend Seniors’ Community in Kamloops who helped Doreen while she lived there, and to the staff at Royal Inland Hospital who worked hard to ensure she was well cared for in her final days. Doreen will be missed and forever loved.
