Doreen St. Amand (Dowden) 1924 – 2020 Doreen St. Amand (nee Dowden) passed away peacefully in her 97th year, on November 13, 2020.

Born in Brantford, she raised her family in Oakville for 50 years, then moved back to Brantford and finally to Welland to be close to her daughter.

Doreen is predeceased by her husband Arthur, and her siblings and their spouses Phyllis (Alex), Fern (Joan), Sidney (Josephine), Walt, Aubin, Jerry, Dorothy (Ross), and Don. Doreen leaves many nieces and nephews on both the Dowden and St. Amand sides of the family. Doreen’s many ways to retain strong bonds with her extended family along with her good humour, cheerfulness and caring attitude will be greatly missed by all. Many thanks to the care shown by staff where she resided over the last decade including Seasons Retirement Home Welland/Brantford and Rapelje Lodge in Welland.
