In Celebration of

Doris Helen Gorthy

October 27, 1965 -  October 1, 2018

On October 1, 2018, Doris Helen Gorthy passed away peacefully, surrounded by family and friends, after a courageous battle with cancer. At the age of 52, she was taken from us all too soon.

Anyone who spent any amount of time with Doris was immediately taken by her boundless energy and wonderful sense of humor. A lifelong learner and consummate professional, she was a pioneer in medical imaging. Doris was exemplary at promoting the imaging profession in healthcare and was always willing to share her knowledge and experience to help others.

Doris will be dearly missed by her husband George, and their children Benjamin, Mitchell and Madison, as well as her parents, J├╝rgen and Elfriede, her brothers Martin (Lori) and Eric (Katherine), George's parents, George and Jo-Anne, and George's brothers Darren (Sharon) and Thomas (Janene).

George "May my late sister Karen and Doris's Oma, guide her next journey".

George and family. May you find some peace in the weeks to come. We are always here for you, to comfort you with a hug or a laugh. We loved Doris very much, especially her smile and laugh. She can never be forgotten instead, she will always be remembered.
Love you all.

When I think of Doris I will think of the big hugs she gave when I visited Credit Valley. I'll remember how willing she was to take me and my team on informative tours of the Radiology department.
Medical Imaging needs more people like Doris. She will be missed by friends and the profession.
