Grace, Doreen Catherine (née Tobin) – The beloved daughter of Charles and Grace Tobin of Cornwall, passed away peacefully at Caressant Care Retirement Home in Lindsay on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. Doreen at the age of 89, was the beloved wife of the late Ken Grace. Loving Mom of Catherine Wiles (Jeff), John Grace (Jane), Laura Pope (Don) and Thomas Grace (Effie). Cherished Nanny of Katelyn Brown (Ryan), David Pope (Olivia), Connor Pope (Victoria) and James. Adored Great-Nanny of Kenneth and Eliza Brown. Dear sister of Jean Farlinger and predeceased by siblings Grace McDonell and Chuck Tobin.

Doreen was a vibrant and active member of various sports (curling, badminton, tennis, Scottish country dancing), volunteer (RMH, Meals on Wheels), and community organizations (St. Mary’s coffee hour, bridge, Pipes and Drums of Lindsay, Burns dinners) during her 65 years living in Lindsay. She left a resounding footprint on many lives with her compassion, good humour, and warm-heartedness. She was an avid walker and dog lover and would smile at everyone she passed along her journeys. She will be sadly missed by nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Visitation will take place at Stoddart Funeral Home, 24 Mill Street, Lindsay on Saturday, June 20 from 11:30 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. with a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 40 Russell Street East, Lindsay at 1:00 p.m. Interment will take place at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery. If desired, a memorial donation to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St. Mary's Parish Community would be appreciated by the family.

The family wishes to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the many staff at Caressant Care Retirement Home for giving so much of yourself to provide the care and attention during Doreen's stay. We cannot thank you enough for your dedication and compassion. We are all so very grateful.

To Cathy, Jack, Laura, Tom and families my sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. While our paths haven't crossed as much as when we were all younger, I'll always remember Aunt Doreen as a friendly and bubbly person who always seemed to be smiling or laughing. Her obituary describes a life well lived, full of activity and giving of others. Tom recently shared with me that as you were all growing up, and in spite of your Mom's friendly nature, she was the disciplinarian of the family. Who knew! As much as heaven just got better with her in it, the world could use more Aunt Doreen's.

I met the Grace family when I lived with the Stoddart family -many years ago !!!
I later got to know Your Mom better at the Lindsay Curling Club She was always so kind & gentle -always a smile on her face -a beautiful woman inside & out & a great laugh!!!
I continued to meet her thru Ruth in later years when we were both perhaps visiting her at the same time.
She was always missed by those that knew & enjoyed her at the curling club & I know the same was true of the other Clubs & organizations to which she belonged.
My thoughts & prayers are with all of you b/c no matter how old we, or they are, a parent is always missed
Sincere thoughts

To Laura and all the Graces/Popes,
Thinking of you all and saddened at the news of your mom’s passing. It was always a joy to see and talk to your mom whether in your home, on the street or at St. Mary’s. You must get a lot of comfort reflecting on her full and vibrant life.
