A group of friends has erected a memorial bench in honour of Langley’s Doris Weir.
The bench was installed this month at the Langley Seniors Recreation Centre, as a token of appreciation and thanks to the 91-year-old Langley woman who passed away in June.
Brian O’Sullivan, who requested the bench for his long-time friend, did so on behalf of many of Weir’s friends.
Both he, and Weir’s best friend Carol Donovan, were present earlier this month for the unveiling ceremony at the seniors centre.
In fact, O’Sullivan was invited to make the first turn of the wrench to officially install the bench in its new setting, on the front walk at the 51B Avenue facility, said fundraising manager Brett O’Reilly.
“Doris and I were close friends for several years,” O’Sullivan said.
“I know that as a former volunteer and board member at the Langley Senior Resources Society, she would be honoured to know this bench has been placed here in her memory.”
Weir had served as a board member, recreation member, and front desk volunteer for the seniors centre through the years.
