THOMPSON, Doreen ‘Dori’ Myrtle (nee Johnson) RN Ryerson. Surrounded by her family at home in Peterborough, on Sunday, March 16, 2014., Dori left us much too soon but after a life well lived. Beloved wife of Dr. Alan Thompson for 27 years; loving Mum of Sarah, Erica and Robert; much loved sister of Connie Johnson (Ross Aylesworth), Darlene (Jerry McGrath) and Donna Johnson (Shayne Dark); cherished sister-in-law of Hugh Thompson (Francine), Joy Tutsch (Paul), and Andrea Leeson (Garry). Greatly missed by many other wonderful family members and friends. She will be best remembered for her kindness, generosity, and inner strength. After surviving her honeymoon cycling in the Swiss Alps, Dori spent many wonderful vacations hiking, cycling, and skiing with her family, spanning six continents. She treasured her summers at Bruléwith extended family and friends. Following a successful nursing career, Dori turned her loving attention to her children who treasured her unconditional love and her company, even throughout their teenage years.
