Doris Joyce Connelly

 (nee Gill) —
With a heavy heart we announce the passing of Doris Connelly, a most unique and precious soul. Doris, mother of Rob (Cathy Holley), cherished friend to Linda, embraced as family by Mary-Elizabeth, Sarah and Catherine, passed peacefully from this world and into the next on Friday, May 5, 2017. Doris worked for over 40 years as an Employment Counsellor with the Federal Department of Employment and Immigration. Though retired now for many years, she never lost her interest in helping people to resolve their problems. Doris kept alive her enthusiasm for life, never losing her beautiful sense of awe and wonder for life and all its mysteries. We who are left behind are the poorer for the loss of this very dear, wise, fiercely loyal lady who never gave up on anything or anyone and who always believed a solution could be found. Doris really was unique and one of a kind and we are certain that her like will not pass this way again. Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 11th from 1-3 p.m. with prayers at 2 p.m. at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge Street (at Goulding, south of Steeles). Condolences may be made at www.rskane.ca
