Dorreen was born in Palmer, Saskatchewan the first child of Ernie and Gladys Payne. In 1930 the family moved to Rose Lake which turned out to be home for the rest of her life. Dorreen married Raymond Ball in 1946 and were together until Raymond passed away in 2007. Dorreen is survived by son Ronnie (wife Barbara), grand daughters Deanna and Arlene and great grandchildren Nolan, Dallas & Cami. Dorreen also has four brothers and three sisters left in the area with a very large extended family which she held very dear to her heart.
In 1965 Raymond and Dorreen moved to their final home in the area, Conrad Lake which is just up the road 4 km east of Rose Lake. It was a place they both truly enjoyed and even after she moved to town one of the first questions asked when went to visit was “anything happen on the lake today”? That home was also on occasion called the Coffee House as the pot was always on and there was usually a steady stream of company through the day. In 2009 Dorreen moved to Tweedsmuir House in Burns Lake and in 2010 moved to the Pines where she lived out her final days. Ronnie and Barbara
