MARIANNE DOERR


Marianne Doerr, age 91 years, beloved wife of Ron, passed away on Sunday, August 28, 2022, in Winnipeg.
Marianne was born in Brandon on April 20, 1931, to John and Agnes Krueger. She completed her education at rural schools north and west of Brandon and Winkler Bible College. Marianne then returned to Brandon briefly before moving to Winnipeg, where she began working at Winnipeg Supply as an office girl. She did very well there, and Winnipeg Supply provided many free training programs to their employees. Marianne continued her employment with Winnipeg Supply for 17 years with her last role being to control all data going into the computer. When the company changed ownership, Marianne moved to a new job with the Canadian Wheat Board. Marianne then decided to look at other opportunities and became the office manager at the Grain Exchange building; this turned out to be a great job. Marianne married Ron Doerr on March 5, 1977. When Ron suggested she look into volunteering, Marianne began volunteering at the Children's Hospital and soon moved on to smaller organizations. When Ron sold his business shares in 1990, he joined Marianne in her volunteer work, and they spent many happy years volunteering their time. They also enjoyed their summer cottage. Marianne was a member of Elmwood MB Church for approximately 60 years.
Marianne will be lovingly remembered by her husband Ronald F. Doerr and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents and brothers, Jake, John and Frank.
Marianne will be laid to rest in a private graveside service at Zion Cemetery.
Donations in memory of Marianne may be made to the charity of one's choice.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • We are so sorry to hear about the passing of my beloved aunt. I have many happy memories of Marianne's parents coming to visit with us when my grandmother was still alive. In later years Marianne made the trip to Vancouver on her own from Winnipeg to visit us. Marianne was always cheerful and giggling, we were all so happy to see her whenever she visited. I remember my Mom and Marianne spending hours on long distance calls, late at night. She always had time for a personal chat with me, or a sneaked visit to the jeweller to help me get my ears pierced. When Marianne met Ron we knew they were the perfect match immediately. They had a long and loving marriage. RIP Marianne, you will be dearly missed. - Posted by: Anita Klassen (First Cousin, once removed.) on: Sep 20, 2022

  • Sincere condolences Ron. Although we didn't see much of the two of you lately, we will always remember our shared happy times at the Jets games of long ago and lunches.
