Doris Marilyn Covert
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our
beloved sister and aunt, Doris Marilyn Covert. Doris has led a very
fulfilling and rewarding life during her 89 years. She was born in
Brighton, but at an early age the family moved and she was raised in
Paradise, NS, the daughter of the late Jerauld and Carrie (Parker)
Covert. She had a wonderful sense of humour, a keen memory, and
wonderful friends all over the world. She appreciated good food, good
coffee and good conversation. As a youth, Doris was active in sports,
playing on both the girls softball team and hockey team at Bridgetown
High School. She also enjoyed playing badminton. She attended Normal
College in Truro and taught school in various places in Nova Scotia,
Alberta, Quebec and at the Airforce Base in Zweibrucken, Germany. She
taught for thirty-three years – her last sixteen years
before retiring, she was the principal of Hebbville Elementary School.
She was strict, but fair and respected by many students and parents
alike. She actively participated both in community activities and in
professional organizations including some NSTU provincial committees
and held all executive positions of the Nova Scotia School
Administration Association. At an early age, Doris was interested in
travelling the world and travel she did! She knew how to pinch pennies
so she would have money to support her travel plans. She visited all
the provinces in Canada, 43 states in the USA and over 99 countries of
the world. After her retirement, Doris decided to take cruises, mostly
with the Holland American line and took over 35 cruises before her
mobility became an issue and she had to stop. We loved hearing her
stories of all her travels and viewing her slide shows of where she
had been. Doris was an avid curler for many years and took part in
bonspiels either participating herself or watching them in the stands
and later enjoyed being an armchair curler watching the tournaments on
her tv in her living room. She participated in International Bonspiels
in Switzerland and in Southern Germany. For many summers she hosted
family parties on July 1st at her cottage in Granville Center and at
her home in Bridgewater. Doris was a great hostess and we all looked
forward to getting together and to finding out what goodies she put in
the “grab box” each year! Doris never married…
she often said “I could never find a man who could keep me in the
style to which I have become accustomed!” She is survived by her
brother, Murray (Alta) Covert, Coldbrook; sisters-in-law, Ruby Covert,
Kingston; and Charlotte Covert, Yarmouth; several nieces and nephews
and their families; and special cousin, Etta Parker. She was
predeceased by her parents, her sister, Jean Christison; and brothers,
Doug and Bill. Doris has been cremated and there will be no visitation
at her request. A private family funeral will be held at a later date.
Burial will be in the Paradise Cemetery. Donations in her memory may
be made to the QEII Health Foundation or a charity of your choice.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral
Home and Cremation Services, Kentville. On-line condolences and
inquiries may be directed to

Sympathies message

  1. Doris knew me better than I knew her. The Covert family boarded me as a baby starting in 1945.
    In 1997 I received a letter from Doris, enclosed were a number of pictures of me as a baby, toddler and brat. Doris and her mother had wondered for over 40 years what had become of me. A chance reading of my mother’s obituary lead Doris to my sister and then to me. I met Doris in Ottawa for a few hours and again after her Mother had passed. She had a most unique home it was built over a creek. Sadly I have just learned of her passing, she was my first babysitter.
