Dear Teresa, Sally, Mary Ann, Bob, Barry and family,
I was very sorry to hear that your mom passed away. I have so many fond memories of her and I know that my life was enriched because of her. Dorothy certainly held strong to her faith and her family and, despite her busy-ness, she always made time to help out wherever else she could. I don’t know where she found the time to do all that she did! I well remember hours spent in the choir loft at Sacred Heart with both her and Val. I also enjoyed the many sleepovers I had and recall how warmly welcomed I always was. I fondly remember the Friday sleepovers when your dad would sip his drink, rock in his rocking chair and ask me all kinds of questions while your mom made another one of her Friday fish dinners. No matter how busy your mom was, she always made time to show her kindness and to make me feel that I was loved. I am especially thankful that our parents were able to enjoy a friendship that spanned over many decades. We’ve all been blessed because of that. - Heidi

Dear Dorothy was one of my favourite clients at Telfer. I did her cleaning and laundry for a number of years. But she wasn’t just a client, she became my friend. As anyone who has met Dorothy knows you can’t help falling in love with such a beautiful soul. She was kind to everyone and always saw the good in everyone she met. A true Christian. She had a strong faith and a love for her family. She had the greatest sense of humour. When her tap broke and flooded her little kitchenette you’d think she’d be angry but instead she weathered it and we had a laugh about it as we cleared out her cupboards. She was an avid knitter and kept her hands busy knitting for children in need of warmth. Nothing slowed her down. When she had to give up driving she gave her car to a family member. She never complained or spent any time wallowing on what was wrong, she only ever thanked her blessings. I was privileged to see Dorothy every two weeks. She kept her apartment pristine. However the lady bugs and her bed were a constant concern. She was inundated with the lady bugs in spring. I think at one visit I vacuumed a 100 lady bugs. They were even in her bed, which had to be made perfectly. She had the most beautiful bedding which her family made sure she had no shortage of. There were many Tuesday’s all about the bed and the lady bugs. Inevitably Dorothy moved to assisted living and my service ended. However, I always looked for her and would sometimes go to her new lodgings to say hi. We always hugged and caught up but eventually I’d see her less and less and she wouldn’t always remember me. However, it never stopped her from hugging me and giving me that smile that makes your day, the kind only Dorothy could give. She was a gift to everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Whether you were a neighbour, a cleaning lady or a stranger in passing. Your life had sunshine in it if you knew or met Dorothy.
