Obituary – Doris (Maria Dolores) Boyd
September 13th, 1940 - September 3rd, 2022
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Doris (Maria Dolores) Boyd nee Abela, age 81. Born in Rabat, Malta, Doris bravely started her exciting new Canadian adventure in 1964. Doris was an incredible mother, spouse, sister, aunt and friend. She was the cornerstone of her family, a determined, generous, loving Mom who always went above and beyond for her two sons. Her selflessness and nurturing personality created many cherished memories for all who knew and loved her.
Doris was predeceased by her husband Arthur William Boyd in January of 1999. Doris is survived by her two sons, Leonard (Patty), James (Kerri), and one grandson (Sean). She is survived by brothers Paul (Val) , Charlie (Mary Rose), sisters Grace (Angelo) and Rosanne. Doris is also survived by a large, loving extended family in Malta, Canada and Australia. She will be greatly missed by so many people including other friends and acquaintances, especially her amazing childhood friend of over 70 years, Marie Carter.
A funeral service will be held on Monday, September 12th, 2022 ,Sacred Heart Cathedral at 1:30 PM. The interment will directly follow at Prince George Cemetery. A gathering including sandwiches and desserts will be held following the services listed above at Paddlewheel Park or Doris' former address if it's raining.
Although our hearts are hurting now, we are all so much better for having received the priceless gift of her love. She will stay with us forever, as this love is ours to cherish. Rest well Doris. Thank you for teaching us how to live a life of beauty, honour and immense value. Donations may be made in Doris' name to the Prince George Hospice Palliative Care Society, or Parkinson Canada.
