Dolores Marguerite (nee Scheel) Hunter
8 May 1930 - 28 June 2014
Dolores passed away privately and peacefully on June 28, 2014 at Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife. She was born May 8, 1930 in Reston, Manitoba. In her early years, Dolores lived in Reston, Virden, Brandon, Manitoba and Calgary, Alberta.
Dolores was predeceased by her beloved husband, Donald, whom she ventured with to Yellowknife in 1978; her parents Ewald and Marguerite Scheel (nee MacKay); sister Dorothy Scheel; and brother Barry Scheel. She will be deeply missed by her sister-in- law May Scheel, nephew Chris (Maura & Kianna) Scheel and niece Susan (Bob, Taylor, Megan and Brett) Potter.
The spirit of Yellowknife quickly embraced this loving couple and remained their home until their passing. Dolores was an avid reader, a collector of thoughts and a sincere friend.
A memorial service for Dolores will be held on Friday July 18, 2014 at Yellowknife United Church at 11 AM. Immediately following the service, there will be a gathering at the Baker Community Centre with the “Lunch with the Bunch” group. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Yellowknife Seniors Society at #2 5710 50th Avenue Yellowknife, NT X1A 1G1 or call (867) 873-9475 or fax: (867) 873-4318 .
