It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Doris McDonald. Doris passed away in Grande Cache on Saturday April 13, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Often dubbed the “Mother” of AWN due to her founding contributions to the organization. Doris was a woman of strong faith with a gentle soul and an infectious giggle. There are no words that can define this gracious woman who was a founding member and matriarch of Aseniwuche Winewak Nation.
Without a doubt Doris’ pride and joy were her son Christopher, daughter Jenni and grand daughter Serenity. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as well as her brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins and many extended family members.
A mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend - Doris leaves behind a legacy of grace, acceptance, honesty and humility who touched many lives and will be missed by all who knew her.
There are no words for good bye in Cree so Doris – mwestus kah-wup-mitt-nan, we will see you later.
