Obituary for Doreen Seafoot

Doreen  Seafoot
On July 20, 2018, with her family by her side, Lillian Doreen Seafoot (nee Hunter) passed away peacefully at the Assiniboine Centre. She was 85 years old. Doreen was born in Brandon on March 28, 1933, the youngest of four children to Arthur and Janie Hunter. Her family farmed in the Brandon area, then moved to the Chesley district in 1937. Doreen attended school at Chesley and completed her high school education at St. Michael’s Academy in Brandon. She then attended Normal School in Winnipeg, graduating in 1953. Doreen was a teacher at the Fair Valley and Botany schools in southwestern MB until she married Morris Seafoot of Carroll, MB on January 21, 1956. Morris and Doreen lived on a farm near Nesbitt and raised five children. Life centered around farming and family. They also enjoyed going to baseball games, playing cards with friends, and dancing at social events. Doreen was highly involved in Nesbitt and Wawanesa community activities. She was the church organist in Nesbitt and an active member of the UCW for many years. Doreen was athletic, participated in sports, and her competitive nature was known to many. She was a fastball pitcher and led her UCT Centennial team to the provincial championship in 1967. She was an avid curler, winning many prizes and trophies at local bonspiels. In her later years, she continued to curl, and she also took up golf, which became her passion. In 2013, she moved from the farm and into a suite in Brandon’s west end. Doreen was a kind and generous woman of faith; a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt. Doreen had a wide circle of friends who will miss her dearly. She was very outgoing, always showing a genuine interest in listening to and helping others, donating to charities, and maintaining connections with her communities. Doreen is survived by her five children, Ronald (Brenda), Sharon (Kevin), Linda (Ken), Beverley (Mike), and Nadine (Dave); eight grandchildren, Curtis (Crystal), Dane (Lyndsay), Bryan (Leanne), Jason (Helen), Kendra (Ian), Breanna (Dave), Shane, Braden (Carly); three great-grandchildren, Sienna, Lincoln and Noah; her brother Gordon Hunter, and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, her husband Morris, her brother William Hunter, and sister Muriel MacPherson. A ceremony to celebrate Doreen’s life was held at the Central United Church in Brandon on July 25, 2018 with a private family interment taking place at Carroll Cemetery.

Beyond the sunset,
A hand will guide me
To God, the Father,
Whom I adore;
His glorious presence,
His words of welcome,
Will be my portion
On that fair shore.
