MURCHISON, Doris Emma (Butts)
The Cape Breton Post, March10, 2006

It is with deep regret that the family announces the passing of Doris Emma Murchison on March 9, 2006, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, after a brief illness. Her strength and courage during this difficult time was a constant support to her loving family.

Born in Sydney, Doris was the daughter of the late Alexander and Henrietta Butts of Harbour Grace, N.L. She is survived by sons, Jamie (Eileen), Sydney, Laurie(Lee), Coxheath; daughter, Heather (Barry) Hopkins, Sydney; and daughter-in-law, Joan Lourensse, Fredericton. Doris was blessed with nine adoring grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Murdock Pringle Murchison and her beloved eldest son, David Carlison (Carl). She was also predeceased by sisters, Mildred (Butts), Ada (Robertson), Betty (MacKenzie), Olive (Hyland), Isabel (in infancy), brother, Alex and her twin brother, Rupert.

Doris lived her life for her family and she served as a constant example of Christian love and commitment. Her family is ever grateful for the wonderful example she provided throughout her life and for her gentle, constant guidance which has carried us through life's difficult times. Doris was faithful to her church and served for many years as a Sunday school teacher and a member of the United Church Guild. She was a joyful member of the St. Andrew's Choir for over 25 years and the great fellowship of their ministry of music allowed her to give witness to her faith.

Doris was blessed with many good and true friends with whom she shared great fun and wonderful experiences. She possessed a delightful sense of humour and was well known for her endless supply of life maxims which she applied to any and all situations. Doris was a poet who never saw an occasion go by without putting her feelings into a written expression of her unconditional love and support. Her poems were the highlight of every birthday and anniversary and they will continue to bring back fond memories to all of us.

Doris was blessed with a long, happy and fruitful life and we all feel greatly blessed to have been able to share it with her. The family extends a special heartfelt thanks to Dr. Gracie and the wonderful staff of 4B at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for the compassionate care which was given to our mother over the past three weeks. Visitation will be held at Sydney Memorial Chapel, Saturday, March 11 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A service of joyful remembrance and celebration will be held at St. Andrew's United Church, Bentinck Street, Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m., under the direction of Rev. Stephen Mills. Interment at the Dr. John Pringle Memorial Cemetery, Blackett's Lake at a later date. Memorials may be made to the Choir Fund of St. Andrew's United Church or to a charity of choice.
