Obituary

DUFFIN, Doris Marie (Ritchie)

Our amazing mother passed peacefully at Spencer House Long Term Care Home in Orillia in the early morning of September 26, 2019 following a day surrounded and celebrated by her entire loving family. She was 92.

Doris was the cherished wife of Dewhitt her husband of 70 years who predeceased her in 2015. She was the beloved Mom of Sharon Durnan and her husband, Ron, Sheila Nixon (who predeceased her in 2011) and her husband Allan (Barb Gauley) and Kathy Todd and her husband Richard.

Doris was the doting and fun-loving Grandma of Jeff Nixon and his wife Janna and Lisa Thompson and her husband Dave. And the best Mamoo to Alex Skillings and his wife Alix Cowie and Ben Skillings and his wife Jess.

Noah and Caleb Thompson, Ivy and Milo Nixon and Frances and Walter Skillings-Cowie were all so fortunate to be Doris' great-grandchildren.

Doris was the third daughter of Edgerton and Olive (Cook) Ritchie. She grew up in the community of Terra Nova in Mulmur Township. She is predeceased by her brother Donald (Pauline), sisters and their husbands Isobel Baker and Roy, Reta Worthington and Morris.
