In loving memory of Doreen Scott, 95, who passed away peacefully on December 1, 2019 at Pioneer Manor with her family by her side. Much loved daughter of David Scott and Alice (nee Foster). Sister of Cecil, Raymond (Marj Edgar) and Os (Dorothy), all predeceased. Beloved wife of William Scott (predeceased 1984).
Born in Port Colborne, Ontario, on October 10, 1924, Doreen moved to Sudbury, Ontario, as an infant and spent her life on the shores of Lake Ramsey. At the age of 17, she worked in the offices of Frood Mine and later at Bell Telephone, CP Rail, and Sudbury Boat and Canoe with Bill. She married Bill in 1946, and they shared 39 years of marriage until he passed away at age 59.
Doreen and Bill had two daughters - Lynn (Jim Gainer) and Brenda (Gary Bouchard). Treasured Nanny to Shelley Gainer (Tim Bradford), Angie Gainer (Dan Labonte), Sarah Bouchard (Jeffrey Shrigley), and Matt Bouchard (Tiffany St. Jacques) and GG to her great grandchildren Sophia and Emmett. Second mother and dear friend to Dr. Robert Masih. Fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, and her large circle of friends. Lucky to find love a second time, Doreen shared a loving relationship with Dr. George Koski for five years until his death in 2007 and was grateful for time spent with his children Chris (Eva), Lisa (Marshall), Jordy (Jennifer) and David, as well as his grandchildren, sister Helen Koski, and brother Allan Paananen.
Doreen was a member of the Sudbury Canoe Club and, in the 1940s, she would paddle the giant war canoe every evening with her brothers Cecil and Ray. An avid tennis fan, bridge player, member of the IODE, and social butterfly, Doreen travelled the world and loved spending her winters in Florida. Her smile, wit, grace, and kindness will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched.
Special thanks to her LHIN home caregivers Donna and Rosita and heartfelt thanks to the staff at Pioneer Manor ("York" wing) for their care and kindness.
Resting at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home (233 Larch Street, Sudbury) on Friday, December 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. A celebration of her life will take place on Saturday, December 7 at 2 p.m. at St. Andrew's United Church (111 Larch Street). In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Crohn's and Colitis Canada, St. Andrew's United Church (William C. Scott Fund) or to a charity of your choice.

I have many happy memories of time spent with Doreen, both in Sudbury and here in Edinburgh, Scotland. She visited us on numerous occasions over many years; originally with her friend/our Aunt Olive and quickly came to be considered by us as as part of our family. I will remember Doreen as a gracious, serene lady with a wonderful sense of humour. We will all miss her. Sending love to Lynn, Brenda and their families.

Every time my son and I visited Sudbury, seeing Mrs. Scott was one of the highlights. I will always remember her lovely, kind manner, warm smile, and way of making everyone else feel special.
Elizabeth Siegel

Truth be told, I didn't see Mrs. Scott that much, but I think that just goes to show what an impression she left. I feel like she was my neighbour, a friendly face you'd see daily.

We remember the wonderful Doreen from her many visits to our family in Edinburgh, Scotland when we were growing up. She lit up every place with that fantastic smile and beautiful nature. We visited her a couple of times in Sudbury and her hospitality was tremendous. We will miss her from afar. Our love and sympathy to Lynn, Brenda and families.

I remember well when I first came to work in Christian Development at St. Andrew's, it was the end of the big 100th Anniversary Year. Doreen and Bill Scott had done a masterful job of leading the congregation through a year of celebration. And hospitality was so generously offered to me by Doreen, particularly. She welcomed you and always had a few moments to connect with you. Doreen was always a presence in worship and church activities, even after Bill died. She was indeed a beloved member of St. Andrew's. We have entrusted her into God's hands but she will be missed.
