Doreen leaves to cherish her memory her children, Douglas Cazes, Tammy (John) Kenny, Wade (Emily) Cazes, Danita (Harvey) Grovet and Kimberley (John) Belinsky; daughter-in-law, Linda Cazes; eleven grandchildren, Jeffrey (Jenelle) Cazes and their children, Bexton and Haisley, Brittany (Justin) Klein and their son, Nash, Mykel Cazes, J.

The family would like to extend a grateful thank you to the Medicine Hat Special Transit. They went above and beyond for our mother and grandmother.

This was a quote from a book that Doreen just wrote:
“I am in awe how Jesus took this little girl, me, Doreen, and led me in the life that I myself am amazed, but have seen His love, presence and guidance and direction and lead me all the way. We will meet again in the resurrection morning.”

Doreen will always hold a special place in our hearts. If there is one special memory (of many) that stands out for us about her kindness and generosity it is the time she was instrumental in fund-raising so Dianne could join me on a trip together to Israel and several other countries. In addition to that she offered to watch our three young children while we had that time away from home. Doreen was like a "mother hen" to everyone. Always had a smile on her face, and ALWAYS had something to say. She was a true encourager and her heart was big enough to include everyone. We were so grateful that she pleaded for us to stop by on our last trip through. She was one of those special one-of-a-kind type of people. God must have taken great joy in making her into the wonderful person she became. She will be deeply missed. Always in our hearts!! Our sincerest condolences to her family.

Very sad to hear of Doreen's passing. She was genuinely loving. Always had a smile on her face. I enjoyed popping in and out of the Cazes home and even worked for them one summer.
Doreen was a blessing to those privileged to meet and spend time with her, and touched many lives.
Looking forward to the day our Lord returns and grateful for the hope of the resurrection.
God be with you and keep you safe. Deepest sympathies to the family. Know you are lifted up in thought and prayer.
Love and hugs. Alicia

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Doreen. Dad was especially close and will miss their conversations and visits. We had spoken to Doreen not that long ago and had planned a visit to Medicine Hat this summer. Doreen and your Dad were my favorite people and are greatly missed by us all. We're so sorry we will not be able to make the funeral but our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Love Carl, Kim, Terry, Calvin and Bruce Cazes

I knew Doreen for around 7 years as I'm one of her tenants. She is one of the most amazing people I've had the privilege of meeting. So caring and just full of life, doing so much to spend her time volunteering in the community. I would stop every month to pay rent and we would sit & chat for a while. She always had so many stories, so much going on! She will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences to all of her family & friends. God Bless Her... God Bless Everyone.
