1930 - 2013

Douglas Jefferey sqIt is with great sadness and love that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather, Doug Jeffery aged 82 years of Morden, MB on Sunday May 19, 2013 at Boundary Trails Health Centre.

He was predeceased by his wife, Dorothy in 2010, his parents, Fred and Bessie Jeffery, Ron (Bert), Phyllis (Murray) and Bernice (John).  He is survived by his children. Debbie (Scott), Dianna (Ron), Danine (Dave) and Dan (Shelley) and his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  He is also survived by his siblings, Marguerite (Jim), Bill (Ruth), Audrey (Earl) and Fred (Peggy).

Dad treasured family time and looked forward to his fishing and camping adventures with friends and family. He never missed watching a Blue Jays game and was hoping that this would be their year. Dad was always willing to share the stories of his past. Mom and dad had a special love for dogs which has spread through the family.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date for family and friends.

A special thank you to Boundary Trails Health Centre, specifically Dr. Woelk and Dad’s special family nurses, Debbie, Kaeleigh and Allison. Thank you to Joe Mulligan for always making “time”. Thank you to the staff in the chemo, palliative care and medical ward units. Also to the Handi-Van for bringing dad out for his weekly family ventures.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Doug’s memory to Boundary Trails Health Centre Palliative Care Unit Box 2000 Winkler, MB R6W 1H8.

Was sad to hear of "Mr. J"'s passing. I fondly remember him coming up to drink the last of the pot of coffee made at lunch (at 4:00 in the afternoon!)and cutting 1/2 the filter off a borrowed - but much to light cig. A wonderful man who will be missed by many. Thinking of your family and your loss.
