Obituary for
Doreen Jean Cheetham
Doreen Jean Cheetham, aged 88, passed away unexpectedly in Edmonton on August 6, 2020. She leaves behind her two children, Rick (Darla) and Ken. She is survived by four grandchildren: Dana Heatherington, Mathew, Melissa and Royce, three great grandchildren: Tristan, Kaylie and Leighton, and her siblings, Don Jesse {Sylvia), Donna Barss (Don}, Eleanor Shulsky (Russ), Joan McIntyre (James), Bob Jesse, Deanna Swallow, brother- in- law, Jim Strachan; and many nieces, nephews and friends. She is predeceased by her sisters, Eileen Smith (Sid), Clara Heinrich (Carl), brother- in- law, Irv Swallow and Olive Strachan; her parents, Doris and Alfred Jesse; and her special friend, Steve Sheldon.
Mom was the third child of ten, born in Regina, on Sept 20, 1931. She completed elementary, high school and secretarial training in Regina prior to holding jobs with Department of Highways, the family owned survey business, retiring from NAIT in 1996. She was noted as a dedicated employee who was helpful, kind, and pleasant to everyone. Her gregariousness and ability to talk to anyone served her well in her last position with the Administration office.
She was actively involved in the North Battleford community for many years being a staunch supporter of the United Church (Sunday School, Explorers, Choir), Kinettes and the local horticultural society. She won many awards for her flowers and taught everyone the importance of deadheading to extend their beauty. The family-built cabin at Murray Lake was a labor of love and a special place of retreat for many summers. The hand placed rocks on the fireplace and the beautiful birch trees at the front of the cabin remain as a testament to her.
The yearly trips to Saskatchewan for the May long weekend, summer vacation at the cabin and Christmas allowed for many wonderful memories. She was the first one out of bed every morning, raring to go outside to the sand box and tree house, for a walk around the block or a quiet reading cuddle. She took opportunities to help and enjoyed actively playing by the hour with the grandchildren. She became the first inventor of lanyards, ensuring that she always had a key on a shoelace, string etc. This was following a memorable evening when she and Mathew were locked in the garage until parents arrived home. We found them laughing, having a great adventure in the car by making up stories to pass the time.
In Edmonton, her middle years were busy and active as she worked full time, was an active community volunteer and visited with family. She especially looked forward to and enjoyed her annual “Sister’s Weekends” – much laughter and good times occurred.
Most recently, time was spent helping in her last home at Matheson Seniors Residence, treasured trips to Ontario to visit with Steve and his family and participating in the life of St. Andrew’s United Church, with choir, flowers and her much loved quilting group. She enthusiastically promoted the St. Andrew’s annual quilt sale and card program to everyone.
Mom spoke lovingly and often about her family, focused on the positive in people and life, generously offered a helping hand, a kind word or mailed a card to family and friends. She zealously guarded coffee duty, was a self-pronounced early riser (many times before you may have been ready to start your day) and could be very stubborn – once she made her mind up – the discussion was done.
Due to COVID-19, there will not be a service at this time.
