General Relief Society Board Member Dies

CARDSTON, AB -- Ruth Doxey, 80, who served 12 years as a member of the General Relief Society Board, passed away in Lethbridge last Sunday.

Born in Cardston as Ruth Tanner, she was married at the age of 26 to Clifford Walker in the Oakland California Temple. The Walkers then moved to Calgary where they raised four boys and one girl. With only two years having passed since being called to the Board, Sister Walker lost her husband.

Two years after being released from her calling, Sister Walker remarried. Her husband, Roy Doxey, and she served a mission to London, England. She served two more missions - one to New Zealand and one in the Canada Winnipeg Mission - following Brother Doxey's death in 1992. Upon completing her missions in 1995, she moved to Cardston where she resided until her death.

Sister Doxey leaves behind four of her children, 29 grandchildren and six great grandchildren. She had asked that donations be given to the newly formed Perpetual Education Fund in lieu of flowers.
