passed away on May 19, 2014 at the age of 90 years at the Kamsack Hospital.
A private graveside service was held as per her request.
Dories was educated in Kamsack and Yorkton, SK. She was married two times to Geo Long in 1950 in McBribe, BC of whom she had a son Greg Long, and then to John Popoff in 1963 in Kamsack. She worked as a nurse for 44 years which included positions in Yorkton, SK, Vancouver Island, BC, McBribe BC, Calgary, AB and finally as head nurse at the Kamsack Union Hospital until her retirement in 1986.
She was a firm supporter of Saskatchewan Abilities Council, Camp Easter Seal and Telemiracle.
Dories was predeceased by her two husbands: Geo Long and John Popoff, and is survived by her son Greg Long, several nieces and nephews and other extended family.
Dories was a superstitious of Friday the Thirteenth – she would even restrict her activity on that day.
Her greatest joy was her son Greg whom she spent as much time as possible showing him how to do things and loving him.
Dories greatest summer sport was sitting on the boat fishing where she came back home with many a sun burnt nose. Her winter joy was watching curling and playing cards.
Life is a gamble, and Dories loved to gamble.
