Doreen Johnson

With great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom, Doreen at the age of 88.

Predeceased by her first husband, Peter Konrath (1984), second husband, Edward Johnson (2007), and son-in-law, Gerry Gardner (2006).

Survived by her children, Ray (Jacky), Jim (sue), Ted (Kelly), Janet (Jay) and grandchildren, Peter and Lorne.

Born and raised in Battleford Saskatchewan with her one sister and three brothers. She worked as a telephone operator. She met Peter and they married in 1948. Soon after came their first son. They moved to Perdue Saskatchewan, where they were owners of the Perdue Hotel. They remained in Perdue for 9 years and had two more sons. They moved to Sidney in 1958 and had their fourth child, a daughter.

Doreen worked at the Star Weekly Bus Depot on Beacon Ave. for a few years, but most people in Sidney will

remember her as the smart looking lady behind the counter at the Sidney Pharmacy where she worked for 23 years. She was also very active in the Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary. There she was always known to get a kiss from one of the R.C.M.P. officers on Remembrance Day. She will be missed.

A sincere thank you to all the Staff at Saanich Peninsula Hospital ECU1.

A private family gathering will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers please send a donation to

The Saanich Peninsula Hospital.
