Condolences & Memories (12 entries)

  • To my best Uncle in the world, Uncle Mike, my darling cousins, Marilyn, Ken, Allen, my lovely sister Lori, and my dearest mom. I am so sorry I wasn't able to come and be with you all, this was my first reaction when Lori told me, I desperately wanted to be there. Your wife, your mom, your sister, my/our aunty Dorothy, has and will always be an example to me of kindness, goodness and genuineness as a person. Whenever I think of her, I see her either working in the garden, putting on lipstick because you uncle Mike said so, pulling food out on the table within minutes after we arrive....How did she do that?!! She always was kind to me, she always loved me, and I always loved her. She has been for me the example of a good mom, a good sister, a good wife and just a dam good friend. She was always in good cheer, always had a funny thing to say. I loved her dearly. I was so glad we were able to see her at least a bit last trip, she looked so happy, although we could see she was tired, she still filled the table with food!!!! She gave me an angel figurine to take home with me, which I did and it has become a treasure for me. I have held it alot and tried to connect with her through that angel, I know she understands I couldn't make it to say goodbye, I hope all of you do too. I know my life is very far away but I have said this before "our family is special" and Aunty Dorothy was exactly that "SPECIAL". Uncle Mike, you know she can hear you when you talk to her, whenever you need her wisdom, whenever you are lonesome, she listens. You also know, she is not alone, she has her parents now, and other brothers and sisters to keep her busy, she isn't alone. She has done so much good for others in this world that she took with her a load of good deeds. I love you all very much! Our Sincere Condolences. Love and Hugs, Sarrah/Peggy David and family - Posted by: Sarrah/Peggy, David and Family (Relatives from Isreal.) (Niece) on: Oct 28, 2014

  • Mike, Allen and Rhonda, Ken and Colleen, and Marilyn and their families. We are so sorry to hear of Dorothy's passing. She was a lovely woman with a smile and a laugh for everyone. She will be missed by all who knew her. My wedding bread was always special but just became a bit more special because she made it. May she rest in peace and you all find comfort in the memories she made. Much Love Tim, Gale, Amanda, Staci and Christina Burridge - Posted by: Gale Burridge (Werestiuk) (family friend) on: Sep 20, 2014

  • Our gardens were almost adjacent to each other so it was a pleasure taking a break from my garden work and visiting Dorothy. We'd sit in the sun and just chat. She was just such a pleasant person. I'll miss her! We won't be able to attend the funeral and our deepest condolences to Mike, Ken, Allen, Marilyn and their families. - Posted by: Gene & Liz Happychuk (We are close neighbours in Sundown.) on: Sep 18, 2014

  • Uncle Mike, Ken, Colleen and Family, Marilyn and Henry, Allen/Rhonda and Family. Our deepest sympathy on your loss of a dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother & Great-Grandmother. Aunty Dorothy was my second cousin but out of respect as a family we go way back I always addressed her as an Aunty to me. Our roots go back many years with our exchange visits with Mom, Dad, Bill and myself at the farm back in Sirko with Woyko Mike and Woyna Elena and all of Aunty Dorothy's siblings. I have many great memories of our visits in Sirko and as we moved to Sundown we were neighbours and our visits continued there. After my Dad's passing Uncle Mike and Aunty Dorothy were always there for Mom's support and help. There was never a day that went by that Aunty Dorothy wouldn't drop in with baking or canning in hand and sit visit and have a cup of tea with Mom or take her to Steinbach or Vita to go shopping. Aunty Dorothy will truly be missed for her kindness, her sense of humor, her willingness to help others and her teasing. She always enjoyed a good laugh! May Her Memory be forever Eternal. - Posted by: Walter/Cheryl& Marshall (Sokoliuk) (Cousins ) on: Sep 17, 2014
