Beloved wife of Gerald Roger Doucette passed away in Medicine Hat, on Friday, January 20, 2023, at the age of 77. Roger and numerous family members were at her side. Dolores was born in Dodsland, SK on November 22, 1945, to Joseph and Rose Fiest of Coleville, SK and was the second oldest of seven children.
She was known affectionately as Kookie to friends and family. Auntie Kookie was loved by all her nieces and nephews, as much as she loved them. Next to Roger and her family, the love of her life was her favorite companion, Harley and we think she sometimes loved him more than her family.
Dolores and Roger were married September 16, 1996 and had 26 wonderful years together. Throughout their marriage they travelled to many different locations. The cabin they shared at Duncairn Dam was a great joy to both. After they sold the cabin, they wintered in Mesa for a few years.
Dolores had many jobs throughout her life working in Kindersley, Red Deer, Kamloops, Trail and lastly for the City of Medicine Hat. Dolores retired from the City of Medicine Hat, Fleet Services, on June 25, 2001, and was able to concentrate on the things she loved best - crafting, cooking, gardening and just taking life a little slower. She was an avid crafter and a great fisher woman and was very involved with the Medicine Hat Lapidary Club.
Dolores was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Rose Fiest; step-father, George Bartlett; her mother and father-in-law, Elma and Ray Doucette; her brother-in-law, Brian Doucette; and her niece, Laura Leah MacDougall. She is survived by her husband, Roger; her brother, John (Toni) Fiest; her sisters, Linda (Ken) Bidyk, Donna (Ed) Brotzel, Bev (Rick) MacDougall, Debra (Wendell) Campeau, Karen (Darcy) Schmitke; her sister-in-law, Pat (Allen) Holt; and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
The memorial service for Dolores will be held Thursday, February 9 at 1 o'clock at St Patrick's Catholic Church, in Medicine Hat with Father Francis Tran officiating. Dolores' ashes will be spread, as per her request, at a later date.
