<div itemprop="description">Peacefully on Oct. 6 at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital, surrounded by family, at age 85. Predeceased by her parents, Lyman and Mabel Frazier, she was the youngest and final survivor of 11 children, sisters Alice and Viola, brothers Harry, Bill, Eric, Milton, Ronald, Edward, Donald and Kenneth. Married to Donald J. Egan for 59 years until his passing in 2012. Predeceased by two children, Julie and Douglas, survived by a daughter, Suzan, of Vancouver and three sons, David (Susan Montgomery) also of Vancouver, and Kelly (Laurie Fagan) and Norman, of Ottawa. Warmly remembered by grandchildren Sonja, Erik and Joe (all of B.C.) and Will, of Ottawa. Also survived by sisters-in-law Noreen Paquin and Barbara Egan and many nieces and nephews. Born in Ottawa, a graduate of Immaculata High, Doreen first worked at the Met Life, then had a lengthy career as an employment counsellor with the federal government, retiring in 1991. She was an avid bridge player, keen Coronation Street follower, a vocal Sens fan, a devout Catholic blessed with a wonderful singing voice. She served as president of the condominium corporation at Chesterton Towers and volunteered at many good works, including taking communion to the sick in hospital.<br>She passed on a beautiful fall morning on the eve of Thanksgiving and, on her deathbed, struggled to say: “Thanks for all you’ve given me.” There is no way to easily express what she meant to us, except perhaps to live well, be kind of heart, selfless and humble, as she so often strived to be. Mom made us better. We so loved her.<br>The family thanks the 5th floor AMA staff at the Civic, especially nurses Motorcycle Mike and Angela G. Enduring gratitude to Norm for taking care of Mom in her final months.<br>Family and friends may pay respects at <br>Kelly Funeral Home- Carling Chapel<br>2313 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, ON K2B 7G3<br>613-828-2313<br>Thursday, Oct. 13 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Funeral to St. Maurice's Church for Mass of Christian Funeral Friday, Oct. 14 at 11 a.m. <br>In memoriam, donations may be made to the Shepherds of Good Hope.</div>
