Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I was saddened to hear about Dorothy's passing. We worked in the same office in the 70's (a while ago) for the Provincial Government. She was a delight to work with....never complained about anything or anybody. You always remember the nice ones. I'm sure all her medical problems are a thing of the past - Posted by: Brian (fellow worker) on: Aug 22, 2016
We have not forgotten what a wonderful couple the Willacy's were. Such a fun and vibrant pair. The world is a bit sadder today but heaven has a new angel. - Posted by: Marilyn & Ron Bratti (Neighbours) on: Aug 21, 2016
Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dorothy Willacy. I met her several months ago when she introduced herself to my mother and me when we sat next to her in the lounge at Tuxedo Villa. We had a lovely conversation. After that I made a point of chatting with her whenever I saw her; I was a frequent visitor there. I know she could not see me, but once we got talking, she always remembered me and Mom. Dorothy was delightful company and had a bright and generous spirit. I was very fond of her, and am grateful to have met her. She will be missed by many. - Posted by: Jane Dick (Acquaintance) on: Aug 21, 2016
