Doreen’s love for life, her kindness, laughter and beautiful smile reached out to many. Doreen will be missed by her beloved spouse Ronnie and loving children Mike Morris and his wife Shelly and Michelle Morris-Dallaire and her husband Dan.

Doreen will be dearly missed by her brothers Jim Forster and his wife Cheryl and Bruce Forster and his wife Cathy; sister-in-law Beth Kirby and brother-in-law Tom Caldwell. Predeceased by her brother Richard Forster and sister Susan Forster. Aunt Doreen will be missed by her many nieces and nephews and their children. She is predeceased by her parents Frank and Dorothy Forster and her mother-in-law Renie, with whom she had a very special bond and father-in-law John who she unfortunately only met once.
Doreen loved to sit in the sunshine with a good book, a word search puzzle and enjoy a cup of tea with her many friends in London and Ridgeway. She also dearly cherished her annual trips to Nova Scotia.

Doreen was my friend since we were both 12 we were always together we even lived together at one time. I will miss her comming to halifax every year and going shopping or just talking and relaxing on my porch her reading her book. She loved nova scotia and her many family members who lived in truro. She will be missed by my husband and children and friends that she met here. I like to say sorry to the family and that I loved their sister just like a sister to me. I will never forget this person I loved and I hope someday to see her again. Donna Terry,, and girls xox Goodbye my friend till I see you again
