Dorothy loved spending time with her family and enjoyed visits with her son Glenn. She was very proud of her grandchildren and would do anything for them. She especially loved playing with her great grandchildren whether it was having a tea party, reading books or playing on the floor.
She was always available to listen, give advice, give a hug or soothe a crying baby. She was loving, caring and kind and became known as “Granny” to so many due to her nurturing ways.
Dorothy (Granny) could be found mending or sewing, reading novels or doing crosswords. She liked to go for walks, work outdoors in the yard, go for rides in her Chevy Malibu or go for coffee with her friends. She was very independent and determined and was known for handing out witty remarks.
Caring, loving and supportive neighbors and friends will miss her dearly, as she was a staple in the neighborhood, known for keeping watch or lending a hand whenever needed.
She has left us with so many fond memories that we will love and cherish forever.
As per her wishes, a private service and burial will take place at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Wednesday January 4th, 2023. Friends and family wishing to remember Dorothy (Granny) are encouraged to donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation https://www.heartandstroke.ca/
