I write to inform you of the passing of Doris Wight. Doris passed peacefully away surrounded by her loving family at the Agnes Pratt Home on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.
Doris lived life to the fullest, starting with her missionary work in out-port Newfoundland and then in Africa, where she nursed for over 20 years. Upon her return to Newfoundland, with her daughter, Tsitsi, she taught nursing and during her retirement she was a United Church lay supply minister. A Funeral service will be held from First United Church on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
Please keep Tsitsi and Paul, and the Wight family in your thoughts and prayers.
