Doreen M. Gudmundson

January 18,1931 - January 26, 2019

Doreen Gudmundson (nee Latimer) passed away peacefully in her sleep January 26, 2019 in her home at Orchard Park in Bellingham.

Born January 18, 1931 and raised in Vancouver, B.C., Doreen married Magnus Gudmundson in 1951. After living at Hood Canal for some years and giving birth to son Lee and daughter Julia, Doreen and Magnus settled in Bellingham.

After her children were grown and moved on to their various pursuits, she moved to her much-beloved home in Point Roberts where she led an active life before returning to Bellingham in the 2010s.

Doreen was always an avid letter writer. Even as friends, children, children of friends and friends of children moved to far flung locations, she steadfastly wrote to one and all, keeping everyone in touch with the goings-on in Point Roberts and Bellingham.

Doreen was preceded in death by son Kristinn and daughter Julia, and is survived by her sister Isabel St. Clair, of Kelowna, B.C., and sons Lee Gudmundson of Bellingham, Eric Gudmundson of Lynnwood, and Jon Gudmundson of Logan, Utah. She is also survived by nine grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff at Orchard Park for their loving care of Doreen and for their warmth and kindness to the family.

The family is holding a gathering at the Point Roberts Cemetery on Saturday, May 5, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. In the case of rain, it will be held at the Trinity Community Lutheran Church Hall. For more information, please contact Lee Gudmundson at 360/224-8552.
