Dorothy grew up in Salmon Arm and was a long-time resident of the Thompson area. She will be remembered as a gentle and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. For many years, Dorothy was very active with the Chase and North Shore Lions.

The family would like to express its sincere gratitude to the staff of the Kamloops Seniors Village as well as Louise Peters and the parishioners of St. Paul's Cathedral for their aid and support.
A Memorial Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, February 25th, 2013 at St. Paul's Cathedral, Kamloops.
