Doreen Isobel Leishman
Oct 19, 2021
It is with the deepest sadness that the family of Doreen Isobel Leishman (née Jardine) must announce her sudden passing on October 19, 2021.
Doreen lived with love, and for her family, being heavily involved in the many activities of her children and grandchildren as a supporter and head cheerleader. She was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and lived her childhood in Hathersage, Derbyshire, United Kingdom.
Following her post-secondary education at the University of Sheffield, she emigrated to Canada to take an internship as a physiotherapist in Edmonton, Alberta, where she met the love of her life, travel buddy and future partner in-gardening Terril Wallace Leishman. After a whirlwind romance they were married and settled in Brooks, Alberta, later moving to Sumas (Matsqui), B.C., and finally building the forever home in which they raised their family at Redwood Park, Surrey, B.C., in 1979.
Her time with her husband Terry was filled with travel, gardening, and working to make the Peace Arch Stamp Club the best-of-the-best, and ensuring their daughters’ families were well taken care of, whether by bringing food and canning, dog sitting, or helping with their yards and extracurriculars.
Over the years, Doreen and Terry, visited five continents, by plane, train, ship and car, having crossed the international dateline by ship, circumnavigating Cape Horn and making numerous friends along the way.
Doreen is survived by Terry, her daughters Pam (Morgan) and Heather (Jhim) and her adoring grandchildren Michael, Samantha, Jamie and Charlie.
She was predeceased by her mother and father, Isabella and James Jardine, and her brother Donald.
Doreen’s family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Peace Arch Hospital, and the emergency responders of the B.C. Ambulance Service and Surrey Fire Service for their compassion and support through this sad time.
A celebration of life will be arranged for the Spring to coincide with the beauty of that season in the family gardens.
Donations can be made to Heart and Stroke (www.heartandstroke.ca) in her name.
It is with a great sadness that we have to inform you that Ben Rogozinski passed way on September 10, 2020.
Ben was a long time valued member of the Peace Arch Stamp Club.
He was known as Mr. Millennium for his love of acquiring EVERY Canadian Millennium stamp that was up for auction.
Ben always enjoyed the time he spent at our club and was able continue his love of stamp collecting right up to the last few months.
Our condolences have been sent to his wife Marlene and their family.
Robert Alan Hansen
February 6, 2020
Died peacefully on February 6, 2020, in Peace Arch Hospice, White Rock, BC at the age of 72.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Isabel, children Michael and Diana, grandchildren Christopher, Andrew, Matthew, Samantha and Esmeralda, sister Anita McDonald and numerous extended family members and friends.
Alan was a public accountant but he was also a lover of many things; his stamp collection made him a genuine Philatelist, he was a wine enthusiast and he loved music, especially opera.
Alan enjoyed reading and followed world events and politics, but what he loved more than anything in this world, was his family.
