ROE, Doris - Passed away peacefully after a brief illness at Extendicare London on Thursday February 28 2019 in her 87th year. Beloved wife of James Roe, dear mother to James, Deborah and Nicholas. Loving Nannie to Kristopher, Rhys, Devin, Sarah and Meghan. Great-Grandmother to Dani and Logan. Predeceased by her brother Bob Bishop. In her younger years Doris enjoyed dancing to the Beatles, swimming and winning the Pancake Race in Olney. She felt very lucky to have a great group of friends “from across the pond” here in London and enjoyed many wonderful times with them. Most mornings she could be found in Springbank Park chatting with friends and enjoying her regular coffee shop stop. Doris was a beautiful knitter and her baby hats were coveted by many and gratefully received in donation to Health Sciences North in Sudbury. During her last few years she took great pride in looking after her husband Jim at home.
Cremation has taken place. There will be a memorial service at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, London on Thursday March 7 2019 at 2 pm. Family flowers only, donations may be made to Extendicare or a charity of your choice.

Hi Deborah, Nick and family. I am a neighbour and walking friend of your moms. I was sorry to here of her passing. She was a wonderful lady and I loved listening to all of her stories. When she did not walk in the park anymore we really missed her. She was a very strong woman who loved her family and enjoyed her home in Byron. A great lady you should be so proud of.
Our thoughts are with you all and she lives on in all of you.

Doris always welcomed me with open arms, a big smile and lots of laughter on those walks in Springbank Park, when I was visiting from London UK.
Bless you on your way Doris.

I have so many memories of Jim and Doris visiting my parents for family dinners. Doris always had such a beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humour. My thoughts are with you in this difficult time. She will be missed.
