Dorothy grew up on the family farm and attended school in Balmoral. Following her marriage she lived in Balmoral, Stonewall and Winnipeg. Dorothy worked for a time as a sales clerk in Sears in Winnipeg. In the 1960s the family relocated to California where John had been born and where he obtained work as a mechanic at United Airlines. Dorothy again worked at Sears in California.
Following her husband's death she lived in various homes in California. She returned home to Manitoba and lived with her brother Henry on his farm at Balmoral. She moved into her own home on 1st St. W. in Stonewall. Here she was in walking distance of the Post Office, Sig's Grill and Chicken Chef which she patronized regularly. She worked as a volunteer driver for The Seniors Resource Council.
She eventually moved into an apartment in Stonewood Place where she resided until she could no longer live on her own. She entered Stonewall Hospital and was moved to Teulon Hospital. She was accepted for residence in Red River Place, Selkirk, until a room was available in Rosewood Lodge, Stonewall.
Henry and Doug thank very much Michelle Loehmer and the home care staff and to the staff of Stonewood Place for all their efforts on Dorothy's behalf while she lived in her apartment. Thank you to Dr. Venter and Michelle for assistance in arranging for personal care placement. Thank you to the staffs of Stonewall and Teulon Hospitals and Red River Place.

  • Dorothy, a sweet and gentle lady, will be missed. - Posted by: Dimitri Rachev (friend) on: Jul 07, 2021

  • Our condolences to Henry, Louise and Dorothy's whole family. We moved next door to Dorothy (and Buster) 34 years ago and we couldn't have had a better neighbour. She really was the kindest, sweetest most inoffensive person. We stayed friends even after we moved away. She was a joy to bump into at the grocery store, etc. She never seemed to change. It was only in the last few years that age finally caught up to her. The world needs a few more Dorothys. xox - Posted by: Rae Reid and Ted Monkman (Friend and neighbour) on: Jun 28, 2021
