JESPERSEN, Dorothy Lorraine (nee Kennedy)

June 24, 1926 – Calgary, Alberta
January 10, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta

Dorothy “Dot” Jespersen, of Okotoks and recently of Calgary, passed away with her family at her side, on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at the age of 89 years.

Dot and Carl were long time residents of Okotoks, where they were very active in community events and organizations. Dot operated a successful business for a number of years, and then continued in retail until her retirement when she and Carl moved to BC. In BC, Dot and Carl loved to host and entertain friends and family who visited. Visitors could always expect a fishing trip followed by Dot cooking the salmon for dinner that night. As snowbirds, Dot and Carl enjoyed winters in California and Arizona. They returned to Okotoks to reside in 2000 and Carl passed away in September, 2002. Dot loved to play cards and bingo with her friends at the lodge in Okotoks.

Dot is survived by her children Penny (Brian) Scott of Calgary, Cindy (Tom) Evans of Okotoks and Monty (Verness) Jespersen of Calgary; seven grandchildren Gord Scott of Calgary, Brad (Katie) Scott of Calgary, Vince ( Laura) Scott of Vancouver, Vicki Evans (Jaeger) of Calgary, Casey (Cal) Copeland of Calgary, Duncan (Kim) Evans of Calgary, and Tim (Sarah) Bennett of Calgary; great-grandchildren Jennifer Scott, Eliza Scott, Jonty Scott, Charlotte Scott, Pippa Scott, Lilyana Copeland, Cayden Copeland, Isaac Evans, Vienna Evans, James Bennett, and Brooke Bennett; brothers Thomas Kennedy of Calgary, Chuck (Nina) Kennedy of Comox, BC and sister-in-law Ev Kennedy of White Rock, BC; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Carl and a brother John Kennedy
