Dorothy was an amazing person; mother, grandmother, wife and friend. Dorothy loved decades of travelling to visit family and friends, camping and fishing, swimming in the summers and skiing in the winters. She loved all of nature; birds and flowers, plants and animals, lakes and mountains. More than anything, Dorothy loved her family and friends and to laugh and have fun. She lived life to the fullest and looked at the world through rose coloured glasses. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to a Charity of Your Choice would be appreciated. Thanks to the staff at Moog and Friends Hospice House, with special thanks to Carrie and Rhonda from the Home Care Program and Tina Walter-Hughes for all her support.
