Remembering Mary Doig
Mary Agnes Doig (née Powell), of Seaforth, Ontario, passed away peacefully at the Seaforth Manor, on Saturday, April 29, 2017, in her 86th year. Mary was born in Perth, Scotland, and came to Canada with her husband, Ken Doig and three small children in 1956. Three more children completed the family and Mary made a wonderful home for all. Family and friends from Scotland were welcomed into her home and there was always a cup of tea and a biscuit, no bother at all.
In spite of a busy life with six wee bairns and a revolving door of company, Mary participated in her new community for many years and was a Brownie Leader, a chaperone for SDHS All Girls Trumpet Band, a member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary and Egmondville United Church.
Mary is survived by her husband, Ken Doig, daughters Carolanne Doig, Gail Price (Bill), sons Kenny Doig Jr., Cam Doig (Linda), Ian Doig (Cathleen), Todd Doig (Ingrid); grandchildren, Carly Price-McKenzie (Pete), Reegan Price (Tara), Robyn & Paul Doig, Ethan & Parker Doig; and great-grandson, William Price. Mary is also survived by sisters-in-law, Joyce Doig (Rod) and Elsie Doig (Robert).
Mary is predeceased by her parents, Augusta Louisa (née Forbes) Powell & William Cornelius Powell, and her sisters Lilian Powell-Sterrie and Noreen Mitchell.
