December 8, 1936 - April 6, 2021

With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, Doris Wilkes, at the age of 84 years old, on April 6, 2021 at Kildonan Personal Care Home, with her daughters at her side, and son on his way.
Doris was born on December 8, 1936, to parents Jacob and Mary Schelthelm in Virden, B.C. Her family later moved to Winnipeg, where she met her husband and started a family.
Doris is now at peace with her family. She was predeceased by her husband Phillip John Wilkes on April 2, 1983; her parents, Jacob and Mary; her brothers, Walter and George; and sisters, Irene and Verna.
Doris is survived and will be deeply missed by her children, Gail (Jim), Gary, Bonnie (Kelly), and Joe Kalic; her grandchildren, Amanda (Derek), Ryan, Tyler (Shannon) Kalic, and Jessica and Karly Sidak.
Doris worked at Grace Hospital for over 20 years, and enjoyed spending her free time with her grandchildren, family, and friends. She had a love for country music, and was an avid member of the Royal Canadian Legions. Her greatest memories included her trip to Graceland and Mexico.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

  • Sorry for the loss of your Mother. I worked with Doris at the Grace Hospital and we became close friends. She was very proud of her children. I have seen pictures of you and it was like I knew you all. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I know I will some day see my friend again on the other side.
