The Wakelin and Bailey Family had many great times and trips together. I believe my Mom & Dad met Ralph and Doreen at the Lindsay Figure Skating Club. We had so many good times and trips together. I recall both families walking up 5th Avenue in New York City, shoulder to shoulder, all 11 of us. We got out the Coleman stoves in Central Park and had lunch. Doreen was such a wonderful person and always had a smile and a welcome. I am so glad she had such a long life with good health. I will miss her.

Doreen was a great friend of my mother's, so we knew her well and enjoyed her company. She had a great laugh!

Thinking of you all during this extra hard time because of COVID.

The entire Wakelin Family played an important part of my early life. My mother Florence Staples and I would regularly visit the Wakelins for various reasons and I would get to see how another family related. They were all great! Doreen was fun and solid and, I think, a wonderful role model. While condolences may be in order to the whole family I want to celebrate her as a fine person and a great life. - Bill Staples, Toronto.
