September 21, 1935 – April 23, 2020
Doris Agatha Peres (DeSa) died from COVID 19 at the CHSLD Lachine long term care home on April 23, 2020 at the age of 84.
Beloved wife of Frank Peres, mother to Maria who died at childbirth, Collin, Clinton and Ian, mother-in-law to Susan and Maria, grandmother to Kaylea, Mitchell, Sarah and David, aunty to nieces and nephews, cousin to relatives all over the world, and friend to countless individuals.
Mom joins her DeSa family in heaven: her mother Cecilia, father Frances and siblings Martin, Joe, Tony, Freddie, Stella, and Cathy. She is survived by her dearest sister Hilda.
We were all touched by her soul-warming smile, her countless culinary delights, her annual birthday telephone calls, and genuine love and concern for everyone.
A private service was held with the immediate family on April 24, 2020 via video conference call. We prayed over mom’s casket and our priest blessed and committed her body to God prior to mom’s wish to be cremated. The family will hold a Celebration of Life when possible when gatherings and travel restrictions are lifted.
Thank you for your prayers and support during this difficult time.
Remember…Mom has slipped into another room. She is not gone. She lives on in all of us and will watch over and protect us along with the other departed members of our extended family.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please consider donations to your local food bank in Mom’s name. She was always concerned about the less fortunate in the world.
Kaylea has set up a Facebook fundraiser for a local charity in honor of Nana and Papa:
All Our Love,
Collin, Susan, Kaylea and Mitchell
Ian, Maria, Sarah and David
