Dorothy was born and raised in Moose Jaw, SK. She graduated as a Registered Nurse from the Moose Jaw General Hospital in 1941. She married Jay in 1942 during the war.
Dorothy will be remembered as being very kind and generous, and she had a beautiful smile. She worked at the Swan River Hospital for thirty years, on Maternity. After retirement, she worked for Halliday’s Ambulance until she was seventy five years old.
