<div itemprop="description">Nash, Doreen R. (1934-2016) <br />Beloved Sister, Mother, Grandmother and Friend <br /> <br />Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba passed away peacefully on Saturday February 27th, 2016 at Arbourstone Enhanced Care in Halifax at the age of 82. Doreen is the widow of the late Ronald A. Nash(1934-1985), daughter of the late Harold F. LeGrand and Rose M. LeGrand(West). Doreen is survived by her brother Gordon LeGrand (Pat) of Winnipeg, Manitoba, sons Gordon (Janet), Ronald, Joseph (Beth), daughters Kim Borden (Dallas) and Peggy Nash-Butt (Shawn) and her ten grandchildren (Leann, Ronald, Christopher, Laura, Victoria, Olivia, Tara, Curtiss, Emmitt, Michael John and Mackenzie). Predeceased by son Wayne (1961-1987). Doreen is remembered for her devoted friendship, warm smile and strong will. She spent many years as a dedicated volunteer and avid listener all while wearing her deep red lipstick and often offering timely wit and humour to many. She was a strong supporter of the local food banks. As a devout follower of the Royal Family she was overjoyed when she got to meet Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla on May 19th, 2014 during their visit to Halifax. <br /> <br />The family is deeply grateful to the staff of the 4th floor of Arbourstone Enhanced Care who cared so lovingly for her and quickly became her daily extended family. Doreen made many friends with the residents and enjoyed many moments in the back garden, at the sing-alongs and playing the bells with the music therapist. <br /> <br />There will be a Memorial Service on Wednesday March 2nd at 1pm at Atlantic Funeral Home 771 Main Street, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. <br /> <br />In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Feed Nova Scotia or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. <br /></div>
