June 03,1926 – July 06, 2012

On Friday July 6, 2012, Doris Elizabeth Bargholz of Bentley, Ab. passed away peacefully at the Red Deer General Hospital at the age of 86, with her family by her side. She was born at Kindersley, Saskatchewan and resided there until 1964 at which time she moved to Bentley with her husband and three children, for the green grass to raise their Charolais cattle. Doris never lost her love of the prairies. Blessing us with her kindness and generosity, the door was always open and the home fires were always burning. She loved her donkeys, birds, musical shows, taking her grandchildren on excursions and always the family historian. Doris will be truly missed by a family that loved and cherished her and by a community that she enthusiastically embraced. She is survived by her sister Joan McKenzie of Trail, B.C.; her three children, Frances (Dean) Francis of Empress, Ab., Velvet (Ken) Morris of Wainwright ,Ab., and Jesse (Kathy) Bargholz of Lacombe, Ab; ten grandchildren; and two great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her Mother and Father, husband Ken, sister Marjorie, brother-in-law Don, and grandson Brad. A special thank you goes out to Dr. Donnelly, the nurses in the I.C.U. and Unit 22 for the superior care given to Doris while she was in the Red Deer Regional Hospital and daughter-in-law Kathy Bargholz who nursed her throughout the last 3 months.
