DOREEN MARY OXLAND (nee TAVARES). It is with heavy hearts we announce her passing on Tuesday March 15, 2022 at Edgewater Gardens with family by her side.
Doreen Oxland beloved mother of Suzy, Andrew (aka Baby Huey), Vinnie and the late Christine. Proud and loving Nana of Mark, Lee, Andrew, Kahleigh, Connie, Eric, Kyle, Justina, Stacey, Kirsten, Sam, Sasha, Leon, Terrance, Sebastian, Thomas, Oliver and Stanley ; great grandchildren Auron, Summer, Marcus, Nevaeh, Ty, Sterling, Alfie, Riley, Finley, Liliana, Giulino and their families. In lieu of flowers, donations to Edgewater Gardens, Dunnville would be appreciated by the family.
Born in England she crossed the Atlantic to live many years in Bermuda. Then back to England for a few years before settling in Canada where most of her family called home since 1971. Doreen loved spending time with her family and also days at the beach. Family, food and fun activities on the beach or in the water made for great memories.
Doreen was involved with the Dunnville Community Theater as well as the Dundas Little Theatre. She enjoyed all aspects of the theater and was happy when she was acting.
Working with the elderly became a passion for her. She owned her own seniors home which allowed her to work with residents on a personal level which gave her a great sense of satisfaction.
Doreen leaves many family in England, Bermuda and Canada who will miss her dearly.
God has her in heaven and finally she is home. May you forever fly with the angels.
