Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • My friend Marilyn and I got to know Dolly through our bi-weekly singalongs at Lion's Manor. She was a joyful participant. She loved the songs, told us many stories and was always ready to laugh at good jokes. Her favorite song was "When Irish Eyes are Smiling". It was my job to pick her up from her room each week. She would greet me with the warmest smile and "Hello!" as though I was the Queen of England, and it never failed to make my day. Rest in peace Dolly. It was an honor to know you. - Posted by: Lydia Penner (Volunteer friend) on: Sep 17, 2020

  • Sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved mother. My mother and I knew Dolly through the Fraternal Order of Eagles, both with the Ladies Auxiliary and Thursday Supper program. We also knew Ron and his first wife Ruth, whom I met while Ron was Chaplain at the University of Manitoba. Ruth was also my brother's lawyer at one point. - Posted by: Janice Clarke (Friend ) on: Sep 13, 2020

  • Dolly was a fun-loving mother, aunt and grandmother. She liked to be around people, was open minded and openhearted. A generous soul, everyone ‘knew’ Dolly and appreciated her company. She had a very special relationship with her younger sister Joyce, and spent much time together in their later years. She will be sorely missed. Condolences to Heather. Love to Dolly. - Posted by: Lori Merrill (Neice) on: Sep 12, 2020

  • Dolly always greeted me enthusiastically. For quite some time, we played cards biweekly; and she was a fun and humorous player. She also participated in singalongs, and was appreciative and talkative - livening up our time. I remember that she loved dark chocolate covered ginger from Mordens, and would always be ready to share. I'm sorry I couldn't be present to her over this last while. You will be missed dearly, Dolly; and I will always consider you as a wonderful friend. love Marilyn! - Posted by: Marilyn Heidebrecht (Volunteer friend) on: Sep 12, 2020
