Poole, Doreen

Written by ECA Review


On the afternoon of April 6, 2021 Doreen Poole got her angel wings. 

Doreen was born in Drumheller, Alta. and grew up on a farm near Morrin, Alta. 

She took her nursing training at Holy Cross Hospital, Calgary and worked there private duty nursing until marrying Jack.

They both worked in Drumheller in the winter and farmed in the summer until our brother, Terry was born. 

Three girls were added to the family. Doreen continued to nurse in Drumheller and then Stettler, where they lived after selling the farm.

In 1989, they moved to Red Deer. 

After Jack’s passing, Doreen volunteered at the Salvation Army Thrift Store and continued to be an active member of the Parkland Baptist Community Church.

In 2016, she moved to the Linden Lodge which was home until her passing. 

Doreen had a strong faith in God and a daily walk with the Lord that she held fast to throughout her life. 

A tiny, feisty lady, she was an example of a life of giving, loving and caring.

Doreen is survived by her three daughters Mavis (Brian), Donna, Edith (Dwight), her daughter-in-law Carmelita; 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by her sister Jean, brother Don (Mary Ann), sister-in-law Joyce and many nieces, nephews and dear friends who knew and loved her.

She was pre-deceased by her son and her husband, and two sons-in-law.
