CAMERON, Docia Lorraine Bennett.
Born April 14, 1917, Russell Springs, Logan County, Kansas; died, Edmonton, April 16, 2003. Predeceased by her husband Norman S. CAMERON, sisters Stella and Irene, and brothers Emory, Bill, Guy, and Ivan. Mourned by daughter Jane CAMERON, Toronto, son Duncan (Yolande GRISÉ) Chelsea, Quebec, her brother Don (Georgie) LEWISTON, Idaho, and special Friends Michelle, Kevin and Olivia TOM, Penticton, British Columbia. Like her parents Charles and Mary she was an Alberta pioneer, arriving as a young child in the farm country in the Forestburg area. Her youth was spent in the world depression which so affected the prairies; at 22 she witnessed the outbreak of World War 2. Bride of a Naval lieutenant she lived in Esquimalt, Prince Rupert, Halifax, and Toronto during the war years. With her husband overseas, she established the family home in Edmonton until a family move to Vancouver in 1966. Shortly after Norman died in 1992 she returned to Edmonton. She was a passionate Canadian, an admirer of her contemporary Pierre Elliot Trudeau, a lover of good books, gardens, antiques, and the opera on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. A wonderful story teller, her sense of humour endeared her to many. She thrived on lively conversation, good drink, and fine cuisine. Independent minded, a fierce defender of all those she loved, and a steadfast opponent of mean spirited governments, she lived her life fully. In her memory donations may be made to the Parkland Institute, University of Alberta.
