Obituary of Doris Gallant (Scholz)

Doris Gallant passed away peacefully at the Village Green Nursing Home on Friday, September 1, 2017 at the age of 87.  Cherished mother of Jannette Cox (Donald) and the late Kathy Legault (Larry).  She will be dearly missed by her loving grandchildren Sean (Rebecca), Patrick and Andrew (Ashley) Cox and Angelique Legault.  Survided by many family members in Germany. 

Doris was long time employee of the Royal Bank of Canada.  In the early 1960's RBC gave Doris a chance to prove herself as a newly landed Canadian with no banking experience.  She started out at the 360 St. James St., Montreal Branch as a teller and worked her way up throught the company eventually retiring in the 1990's from a branch in Toronto where she mangaged the Safety Deposit Boxes.  This chance that she was given, allowed her to create the life in Canada that she had come so far to achieve.   

Doris' daughter, Jannette wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the staff and residents of the Village Green Nursing Home in Selby.  The care, consideration and compasion shown to Doris and her family was beyond compare.  In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in Napanee.
