I, Doreen Legall (nee Milke), passed away on September 9, 2023 at the Pine Falls Hospital.
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on February 29, 1932 to Juliana and John Milke. We were a family of six children of which I was the youngest. I grew up living on a farm, attended public school in the vicinity of River Hills, MB. As a family we lived in Winnipeg until I was 1 year old and then we moved to the country near Whitemouth, MB. I attended various public schools in the area. Attending church was always a priority in our family. I accepted the Lord as my Saviour when I was 11 years of age. I was baptized and attended church regularly. In 1949 I attended bible school in Edmonton, then known as the Christian Training Institute (C.T.I.), for one year. I returned home back to Manitoba and enrolled in college, training to become an office worker as a secretary. I was employed with several firms in Winnipeg and at the paper mill in Pine Falls, MB. I met my husband, Doug, there and we were married in 1957. Doug began teaching school in 1963. We then moved to Pinawa where we raised our three children.
I leave to cherish my memory, my husband, Doug and three children Greg (Anita), Heather (Syd) and Tammy (Dale); nine grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren, whom were very near and dear to my heart.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at 1:00 pm at Whiteshell Baptist Church, Seven Sisters, MB.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Doreen’s memory to Whiteshell Baptist Church.
