March 31, 1934 - December 6, 2023

In Loving Memory ~

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother.

Doris Mabel Dahms, born on March 31, 1934 in Bashaw, Alberta, passed away peacefully December 6, 2023 in Terrace, at the age of 89.

She was a beloved sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

Doris was predeceased by her parents Matilda and Gustav Weins, her loving husband, Chester, and her siblings Emma, Joseph, Ruth and daughter-in-law Laurie.

Doris met and married Chester Dahms in 1952 in Bashaw, Alberta. Shortly after the births of their two children, they moved to Peace River, Alberta, where Chester continued his career as a teacher and Doris as a homemaker. In 1966, the family moved to Terrace, British Columbia.

Over the years Doris worked in several retail positions in Terrace and many remember her from working at K-Mart. Doris was known for her helpfulness, warmth and gentle heart. Doris especially treasured her relationships with friends and relatives and kept lifelong connections, sending hundreds of Christmas Cards each year, all with handwritten letters.

She is survived by her son Kenneth and daughter Deborah(Moe), as well as her four grandchildren Alia, Michael, Celina, Andrew and five great grandchildren.

Doris' memory will live on in the hearts of those she touched, and we can honour her by carrying on her legacy of kindness and love.

Rest In Peace, Mom.

We love you and

we will miss you always.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Doris Dahms in the spring of 2024. Donations in memory of Doris can be made to the Happy Gang Center for Seniors, 3226 Kalum Street, Terrace, B.C. V8G 2N1
