Doris Jean (née Bonnett) Bradley of Kincardine died peacefully, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021, at the age of 88. Beloved wife of the late Elmer C. Bradley; and cherished partner of Morgan E. Johnston for more than 20 years. Doris will be greatly missed by her niece, Susan (Barry) Cliffe of Ripley; and their family, Shannon Bonilla and Bryan Cliffe. She will be remembered by Morgan’s family, Jackie and Harry Bruce, Carla, Alana and Charlee; Steven and Ruth Johnston, Lesley, Andrew, Evan and Saundra; and Julie and Bill Brown, Shea, Daina and Michaela; along with many other friends. Doris was the only child of the late Robert and Ida (née Stewart) Bonnett. At an early age, she showed a keen interest in music education, and, therefore, music became an important part of her life. She studied Royal Conservatory of Music and attained high standing with attendance at Harbord Collegiate Toronto and North Toronto Collegiate until graduating in the early 1950s. She later went on to become a supervisor of music with the Department of Education and taught in many schools throughout the Bruce Inspectorate for several years. The funeral to honour Doris’s life, will take place at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine, Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, at 11 a.m., with Pastor Kenneth Craig officiating. Anyone wishing to attend the service must RSVP at or by calling the funeral home at 519-396-2701.
