We announce the passing of Doreen Leslie Asplund on April 14, 2021, 18 days short of her 90th birthday.

Doreen was the first-born of Bernard and Annie Giesbrecht of Lowe Farm in the Morris Municipality, Morris, MB. She was one of 11 children. In her teenage years she took a sewing course in Steinbach, MB and used that info extensively throughout her life!!

Doreen worked at Eatons in Wpg. She met her future husband Carl Asplund in Wpg and moved to Thompson in early ‘60’s to open the Thompson Music Studio. Besides taking in boarders she did custom sewing!! She has lived there most of the time since then.

Doreen lived independently for many years, finding comfort in the North while enjoying all her activities! She will be remembered for her beautiful sewing, knitting, crocheting and many crafts for craft sales. Everyone in Thompson must have special oven mitts and oven door hand towels! Quiet Books were a big hit, many of which she sent far and wide!!

Highlights in her life were her grandchildren and great grandchildren! Her “Brag Book” tells the story!!

Doreen is survived by her grandsons, David(Britney) and Michael(Karla) and great grandchildren Alexa Dueck and Addison Asplund as well as David and Michael’s mother, Donnelda(Ron Sokol).

Surviving siblings are Peter, Edna, Viola, Verna(Frank), Marlene(Alfred) and many nieces, nephews and cousins and friends, especially Doris and Gary..
Doreen was predeceased by parents and siblings Katherine, Elaine, William, Beverley and Ronald(infancy), and special friend Thomas.

Special thanks to Homecare, Social Services, Palliative care and all the staff at Thompson General Hospital.

At Doreen’s request cremation has taken place with internment at a later date!!

Life is precious!! In Doreen’s memory take time to connect with Family and Friends!!

Another Angel has got her wings!
