We sadly announce the passing of Doris Henry at her home residence on May 7, 2023. Born in Fredericton, she was the daughter of the late Jack and Bessie (Gorman) Dorcas.

Doris was a schoolteacher for over 30 years – a job that she loved. After moving to Riverview from Fredericton with her husband, she began teaching at West Riverview where she remained until her retirement. She enjoyed shopping and really loved finding a deal. She was dedicated to keeping her hair in perfect condition and loved going to get it done every other Friday. For the past few years, the highlight of her week was attending church at Trinity United, where she could visit with her friends and show off the latest pictures of her grandson.

Besides her parents, Doris was predeceased by her husband Neil in 2015 after 47 years of marriage, and their daughter Heather.

Left to mourn her absence are her son Andrew (Diane) Henry, brothers Jack (Denise) Dorcas and Brian Dorcas (Mary Louise Smith), beloved grandson Owen, several nieces and a nephew, and numerous great-nieces and nephews. She also loved and will be missed by her neighbors who were such a large part of her life.

Her family would like to send special thanks to Doris’ dear friend and caregiver Joette Collier, as well as to her wonderful friends and neighbor Kim, Russel, and their daughter Kyla.

Doris’ family will receive friends and relatives at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007) on Thursday, May 11th from 10am-12pm and 6pm-8pm. A service celebrating her life will take place at Trinity United Church, 85 Old Coach Rd, Riverview, on Friday, May 12th at 10am with burial at Fair Haven Cemetery to follow. Donations in her memory may be made to Trinity United Church or a charity of the donor’s choice. For those unable to attend the service, it will be live-streamed and recorded through the church’s Facebook page, found by clicking here.
