February 17, 1935 ~ September 9, 2017
Louise Doerksen was predeceased by her parents, Mary and Abram Doerksen, and her siblings, Katherina, John, Helena and Maria. She leaves to mourn her nieces and nephews and her friend, Pat Tymchatyn. Louise was born in Morden, MB in 1935 and spent many years doing office work in Winnipeg before moving to Caronport, SK to work at Briercrest College and Seminary. She volunteered with the Mennonite Central Committee and worked at their Pennsylvania warehouse for two and one a half years before moving to Saskatoon in 1989. In Saskatoon, Louise kept busy volunteering with the Saskatoon Health Region, the Council of Aging and the Saskatoon Tract Mission. Louise had a love of learning and spent many hours at the public library attending lectures and taking seniors classes at the University of Saskatchewan. She also loved to read and had a large book collection. Louise was adventurous, spending her holidays taking bus tours. She visited all the Canadian provinces except one and almost all the states in the United States including Alaska. During her life and during her illness her guiding force was her faith.
