Louise Doerksen



On Tuesday February 10, 2015, after a fierce and courageous battle with cancer, Louise Doerksen passed peacefully from this life to the next. Surrounded daily by those who love and cherish her, Louise brought strength to everyone around her during this difficult time. Living her life with an unwavering faith in God, Louise brought her own miracle to manifestation by constantly surpassing her doctors’ predictions.

Left to treasure her memory are her husband Werner Doerksen, her children Kelela Doerksen (Luke Clifton-Friend) and Caleb, her mother Simone (Gus) Van Rysselt, her siblings Zoel (Karen) Dupasquier and Irene (Ernie) Ricard, as well as extended family and friends who adore her. Louise’s father, Louis Dupasquier, predeceases her.

The family sends their sincerest gratitude to the doctors and nursing staff of Unit 5D at the University of Alberta Hospital and Unit 43 at the Grey Nuns Hospital, whose tender, loving care have made a world of difference to Louise and her loved ones.

A celebration of Louise’s life will take place at 2:00pm on Friday February 13, 2015, at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home (South Edmonton Chapel) 4820 Meridian Street (Meridian Street can only be accessed by heading SOUTH on the Anthony Henday – Hwy 216. The exit ramp is 1 km SOUTH of the Sherwood Park Fwy.) All are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, please share kindness and love with the world by making a donation to your favourite charity, as this was Louise’s true passion.
