October 27, 1930–November 27, 2012

 It is with great sadness that the family of Doreen announces her passing on Tuesday November 27th, 2012 at the age of 82.  Most recently of Waterloo, Ontario (formerly of Leamington, Kingsville, Huntsville and Windsor).  Doreen is predeceased by her husband Joseph Klepacki (2005) and their daughter Margaret (1961).  She will be deeply missed by her children Bryan (Rhonda), Kenneth (Lily), and Donald; and by her grandchildren Jill (Daryan), Christopher, Katryna, and Lee.  Born in Walkerville (Windsor), Ontario to Andrew and Margaret Gallacher, Doreen traveled with her family as a young girl on the historic passenger ship Athenia to Scotland, where she grew up.  At 18, she returned to the Windsor, Ontario area where she spent most of her adult life.  She worked for General Motors from 1965 to 1988.  She will be fondly remembered as a loving Mother and Nana by her family and as a fabulous cook, avid reader, hobby historian, popular culture enthusiast and as a fashionable, vibrant woman by all who knew her.  Friends and family are invited to attend her memorial service in the chapel at the C. Stuart Sykes Funeral Home, 91 Division St. S., Kingsville, Ontario, (519) 733-4111 on Saturday December 8, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.  A private interment with immediate family to take place at the Anglican Church of The Epiphany in Kingsville following the ceremony.  Cremation has already taken place.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.  Condolences may be left at www.sykesfuneralhome.ca
