LAURA EVELYN DOCKING (published on February 14, 2009)



LAURA EVELYN DOCKING (nee MIKKELSEN) On February 10, 2009, Laura passed away peacefully at the age of 94 at Victoria Hospital. She is survived by her son Ron (Pat), grandson David (Stephanie); son Bruce (Bobbie), grandchildren, Leanne (Andy) and Stephen (Stephanie) and great-grandchildren, Alex and Megan. She was predeceased by her husband Mel and siblings Anne, Jean, and Lorne. Laura was born in Oberon, Manitoba and raised her family in Neepawa. She was active in her community as a school trustee and in the United Church. She also enjoyed curling and golf. In the 1950's, Laura worked for various oil companies searching land titles during the initial Virden oil boom. She and Mel moved to Winnipeg in 1961 where her main focus was family and friends. Until Mel died, many happy summers were spent at Clear Lake. Laura was a wonderful homemaker. All who knew her enjoyed her wonderful cooking. She was deeply dedicated to her family and her grandchildren were her pride and joy. The family would like to thank the staff on the second floor at Vista Park for the care they provided Laura after she moved there in 2008. The family is very grateful to the staff on Unit Two at Victoria Hospital for their kindness in caring for Laura. A service will be held at Westworth United Church, located at 1750 Grosvenor Avenue, on Saturday, February 14 at 3:00 p.m.
