With heavy hearts, we announce the death of our mother, Doris Louise Malmo (née Radke) on Monday, July 25th, 2022 at Olds Hospital.
Doris was born in Bashaw, Alberta to August and Lydia Radke. She grew up on a farm near Bashaw with her two brothers, Norman and John.
She met the love of her life, Roy Malmo in New Norway, Alberta. They married on September 12th, 1948 and celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary in 2020.
Roy and Doris moved from New Norway to Olds, Alberta in 1965. There they created a loving home on a street full of families and kids. Mom gardened, cooked, baked, sewed, volunteered, and worked as a florist with Central Alberta Florists. Her volunteer activities included over fifty years of service with both St Paul’s Church Women and the Olds Hospital Auxiliary.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, Lydia and August, her two brothers John and Norman and their wives, Lois and Doris, her husband Roy, and sixteen in-laws from the Malmo side.
