One time resident of Cortes Island and long time visitor to the island Doris Maranda has passed away. In the 1970s after making connections to the island at Cold Mountain (now Hollyhock) she lived on the island with her children Claude, Sherry, Del and Doug. She and her ex-husband Claude Dosdall then built a cabin on Gorge Harbour which is a favorite spot for the family to this day.
“I am very grateful for my life, for my wonderful, supportive & loving family & friends & all the people I have encountered in my life. As well, I honour my body which has allowed me to experience all the life and challenges that have come my way both externally & internally. I leave this world with no regrets. And I offer to all the troubled beings in our world much peace and the ability to forgive and rejoice in the life we have been given, including honouring and treating with respect and gratitude all that Mother Earth has to offer us.”
