MCMORRAN, Dolores (Dolly)

Dolores "Dolly" McMorran, 1930-2019. (via Drake Cremation and Funeral Services)

It is with sadness our family announces the passing of Dolly on Jan. 12, 2019, at the age of 88 after battling a long illness.

She was born in Kamloops to a pioneer family- James Stark McMorran and Dorothy C. McMorran (Edwards). She spent all her life in Kamloops with a long career of 44 years with B.C. Telephone and 33 years volunteering in the gift shop for the Afternoon Auxiliary to Royal Inland Hospital. In retirement, her daily coffee visits were spent with many friends and acquaintance settling the problems of the world.

She was predeceased by her parents Stark and Dorothy and brothers Melvin and Elmore. She is survived by her siblings Gordon (Marilyn) McMorran of Victoria and Shirley (Ben) Watters of Kamloops; nephews and nieces James (Sheri) Watters, Rob (Maurine) Watters, Ron (Laura) Watters, Bev (John) Watson, Shawn (Anna) McMorran, Lori (Tim) Conell and 14 great nieces and nephews.

The family would like to express appreciation to longtime friends Diana and Norm Kopec for loyalty and friendship. To Heather for her caregiving and wonderful friendship to Doll and her support to our family, there are not enough words. We appreciate and thank the staff of Pine Grove Care Home for their care.

At Dolly’s request, there will be no service. Cremation will take place and interment in Hillside Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family at

Dolly enjoyed life and lived it her way and has now earned her wings.
