DOLORES MARIE LEGAL
February 22, 1937 – July 3, 2021

Mom was always positive and accepting of life no matter where it took her. Even when faced with a cancer diagnosis, Mom's comment was, "I had a good life. I appreciated and enjoyed everything I did with my family."
Mom was a classy lady with an extensive wardrobe but didn't hesitate to rough it. She travelled throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico, Cuba, and Europe, camping on many trips. Mom enjoyed time spent at the cabins on Shoal Lake, gambling junkets and cheering on three generations of athletes.
Mom welcomed her mother (Baba) into her home for 14 years and cared for her till she took her last breath. She then took on the role of Baba in the family.
Mom willingly moved from her home of 45 years to Dakota House where she made new friends. Everyone Mom encountered had a kind word to say about her. Thank you very much to the caring staff who provided a welcome and safe place for Mom to enjoy her last nine years of life. Thank you to Home Care and the angels of 5 North at the Victoria Hospital for helping Mom in her times of need.
Mom will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Louise Marsh (Gary), Lorraine Legal (Jeff), and Paula Legal (Jacqueline), grandchildren, Jayne (Oliver), Jonathan (Alycia), James (Heidi), and Leigh (Adam), and great-grandchildren, Grace, Alexa, Dawson, Weston, Amelia, Avery, William, Brooklyn, and Finnley.

Pleasant Dreams Mom.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I was saddened to learn the passing of Auntie Dolores. I have many fond memories growing up going on many hikes, barbecues and Sunday dinners. Auntie was an excellent cook and was notorious for making the best gravy ever. I will be forever grateful for her kindness and welcoming us three boys into her home while were growing up. Sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: William Wolfe (Nephew) on: Jul 17, 2021

  • Yes I remember the camping trips. They were lots of fun and we had lots of laughs. I especially remember our trip to Vegas. The first trip there for both of us. The men didn’t like gambling so they were off doing their thing but we sat at the nickel machines and enjoyed every minute of it. The drinks were free back then and our hands were black from handling the coins. My sympathy to you and your families. She had three great daughters who are always there for her. - Posted by: Noreen Christie (Friend) on: Jul 17, 2021
