Doris Marie Patsula



With heartfelt sadness the family of Doris Patsula mourn the passing of their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother at the age of 105 years. Doris is lovingly remembered by her children, Theresa (John Lavallee), Francis, John, Ron (Anita Zacharko), Philip (Faye Ereiser), Thomas (Caroline Nadon), Lucille (Del Jamieson), Daniel (Margie Otto) and Elaine; 35 grandchildren, 62 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren; her brothers, Floyd and Raymond (Joan); sister-in-law Anna; as well as nieces, nephews and numerous friends.

Doris was predeceased by her husband Frank; son Gerald (Nerita Majeau); grandson John Francis Lavallee; and great-grandson Drew Patsula. She was also predeceased by her parents Elzear and Eleanore Dubord; her siblings and in-laws Mary, Paul, Joseph, Ernie (Myrtle), Flo (Robert Euston), Ernestine (George Reekie), Rita (Henry Holub), Biane Dubord, Leo (Joyce) and Gertrude (Robert Aldridge).

Doris was born in Duck Lake, Saskatchewan in 1907. She married Francis “Frank” Joseph Patsula on July 15, 1929. They lived in Regina and Moose Jaw before moving to Edmonton in 1944. Hospitality was the hallmark of their home. During the depression years their house was “marked” by vagrants who knew they would be offered a home-cooked meal. American soldiers and immigrants were also offered the hospitality of a home-cooked meal and a warm welcome.

The family wishes to thank the gentle, loving and compassionate care provided by the Jubilee Lodge where Doris spent her last three years.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Joseph’s Basilica, 10044 - 113 Street, Edmonton on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. with Monsignor Francis Patsula officiating. Cremation has taken place.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Atonement Home/Lurana Shelter Society, 11035 - 92 Street, Edmonton, T5H 1W5 or Hope Mission, Box 953, Edmonton, T5L 2L8.

In Loving Memory of
Doris Marie Patsula
(Maiden: Dubord)
