Doreen Alice Wittman

Monday, August 16,1937 – Tuesday, October 25,2022

It is with great sadness that the Wittman family announces the peaceful passing of their Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma and Sister, Doreen Alice Wittman (nee Rudolf) on Tuesday October 25 2022. Doreen was the eldest of 7 siblings, born in Winnipeg, MB to Henry Rudolf and Mary Rudolf (nee Mitchler)

Doreen is resting in ever lasting peace with her husband Arthur and that brings the family comfort.

Doreen will be lovingly remembered by her children Denise (Lyle) Hanson, Victoria (Brian) Marchant, Rhonda (Christiane Armstrong) Wittman & Craig (Sandra) Wittman, grandchildren, Eric, Craig and Cally Hanson, Jennifer (Marchant) Foreman and Brianne (Wittman) Messenger, 1 great grandson Damon Hanson, brothers, Harvey Rudolf, Allan (Brenda) Rudolf, sister Carolyn (Bill) Sharp.

She is predeceased by her husband Arthur, granddaughter, Jamie-Lyn Marchant and great grandson, Dean Hanson.

Doreen met the love of her life, Arthur Wittman, in Winnipeg in 1954. They were married on June 11, 1955.

At the ages of 29 (Doreen) & 30 (Authur), they decided that maybe it was time to get adventurous. With their 4 children, ages of 6 – 10, they loaded up their 1957 Buick and headed for B.C. to see what Squamish had to offer. They immediately fell in love with the quaint, peaceful, small-town vibe. Art was immediately offered a job at Woodfibre so they returned to Winnipeg, sold their home and possessions, and said their goodbyes to family and friends. Squamish was the place that they were going to happily call home for the next 50 plus years.

Doreen began working at Overwaitea Foods in July of 1968 and for over 30 years she was dedicated to her job. She enjoyed meeting new people and conversing with the old timers. Doreen and Art enjoyed many years vacationing at Black Mountain Ranch in Washington and Christina Lake B.C. Her hobbies and passions included curling, bowling, volunteering at the public library, traveling and puttering around in her vegetable garden. She was happiest when she had her children, grandchildren and her faithful dog Ted surrounding her.

Doreen will be remembered for her kind & gentle spirit, sassy humour & cheerful smile.

The family express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Strydom for her guidance and the staff at Hilltop House for the care & kindness.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring.

Mom, you will remain precious in our thoughts and memories.
