Doris May McMahon (Sutherland), 89

Passed peacefully, with her family by her side, on February 23, 2014 at Pinecrest Home.
Doris was born in Sleeman, Ontario on April 16, 1924 to Walter and Sophie Sutherland. In 1943, she married Don McMahon. Don and Doris later moved to Kenora where they raised their family and enjoyed a happy life until Don’s passing in 1963. Doris worked hard to provide for her children and loved them with all of her heart. This love was only surpassed by the love she discovered when her grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrived.
Doris is pre-deceased by her parents, brother Jack, sisters Myrtle and Jeanette and son Larry. She leaves behind to mourn her loss, her brother Don (Ilene), daughter-in-law Donna, son David (Rose), daughters Kathy (John) and Sharon (Shayne).
She also leaves behind her grandchildren Donnie (Eric) and Wade McMahon, Teri (Lorne Alcock), Patti and Jodi (Murray Hall) Palson, Bill and Dan (Michelle) McMahon, Amber (Dane Robson), Jeff (Keric) and Sarah (Chris Wrolstad) Kurz and Lauren (David) and Daniel (Chelsea) MacKinnon.
Great-grandchildren Cody, Brett and Brady McMahon, Drew McMahon, Janine, Tanner and Lexi Alcock, Madelynn and Anna Hall, Jonny Palson, Ava and Lara Robson and Mia Wrolstad.
Doris spent her last years at Pinecrest Home. Her family would like to thank the staff at Pinecrest for the support and care they showed Doris, as well as Pastor Wittmeier for his compassion and understanding.
We would also like to thank all of the friends and family members who visited and spent time with her during her time at Pinecrest.
A funeral service will be held at 1:00 on Friday, February 28, 2014, at Pinecrest. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to either Ronald McDonald House or a children’s charity of your choice.
