It is with great sadness that the family of Doris Stymiest (Meade) announces her passing at the Miramichi Regional Hospital on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at the age of 96.
Born in Crawley England on December 28, 1923, she moved to Tabusintac, NB in 1946, where she resided until her death.
Doris is predeceased by her husband, Keith Stymiest, and her infant daughter Deborah.
Doris will be lovingly remembered and missed by sons, Larry (Janet), Charlie (Heather), Stuart (Lolita) and George (Jeanine). She also leaves behind grandchildren, Danny (Jen), Denise (Mark), Peter (Jennifer), Timothy, Matthew (Katherine), Liam, Hannah (Jacob), Sam, David (Julie), Andy (Chantale) and Isabelle (Robin); and many great grandchildren who loved her dearly. She will also be mourned by three sisters in England; Floss, Jean and Valerie.
Doris was an active member of St. John’s Presbyterian Church and Choir, a member of WMS, Ladies Aid and a Sunday School teacher for many years.
Doris had great determination, strength, and faith-strongly believing in the power of prayer. Her hands were never idle; she spent countless hours knitting and crocheting beautiful items to pass on to friends and family. She always took great pride in her home, and especially her flower gardens. There is no one who could bring a geranium back to life the way she could. She was an avid reader and had a very sharp mind, always aware of current events.
We would like to thank the staff of the Tabusintac Nursing Home for their kindness when it became her new “home”. A sincere thank you to Amy Hill who took a special interest in her, and ensured her days were filled with happiness and entertainment.
Our sincere appreciation is extended to the nursing staff on 2 West, and Dr. Losier of Miramichi Regional Hospital, for their excellent care and kindness.
Due to the current health crisis, visitation and funeral service will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Tabusintac Nursing Home or St. John's Presbyterian Church would be appreciated by the family.
