A kind and loving mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Dorcas was always there to help her family and friends. She loved to knit, bake, cook, entertain and have a good game of cards. She was a member of Christ Church Parish and the ladies auxiliary. She lived all her married life in Hardwood Hill where with her husband she owned and operated the family business, Sids Dairy for many years. She spent the last six years living at Harbourstone where she made many friends with residents and staff. We are so grateful to the staff on Irish Cove for the kindness and compassion that was shown to mom during her years there. They treated her like their own family. We are so grateful for mom’s special friend Mavis Morrison, Lorraine Barnaby and Calder Chant for all their kindness and many visits to mom through the years. Thanks to Dr. John Archibald for many years of care and to the VON a special thanks.
