Condolence from Gail Kureluk (MacGregor) on July 7th, 2018 10:16 AM

Very sad to hear about Dorothy’s passing, she was part of our family for many years. She attended my wedding and as often was the case was the life of the party. RIP.

I’ve known Dot through our Red Hat chapter since 2008. She was a woman of class who always laughed and paid sincere compliments. I remember her 75th BD party well – especially singing Happy BD w/added lyrics written just for her! I will miss her easy conversation & warm hugs. Condolences to all.

Condolence from Olunda Dorward on July 10th, 2018 9:04 AM

It has been difficult to say goodby to such an amazing woman, friend, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Dot joined our red hat chapter during our first year and we became such good friends. When laughter and marvelous sense of humour will be so missed. Such an optimist, even with a dire prognosis she remained the Dot we fell in love with. She will be so missed.

Condolence from Bette Madaro on July 10th, 2018 10:51 AM

I will miss Dot and her amazing smile both at Legacy Estates, and The Red Hat functions. Rest in peace, Dot.

Condolence from Todd Junck on July 12th, 2018 10:17 PM

I have fond memories of Dorothy built over many years of her family being our next-door-neighbours in Edmonton. I’m so saddened to hear the news, and I would like to send love and peaceful healing wishes to Kelly, my best friend for 50 years, also to Lori and Greg and all extended family members for their loss. This was a remarkable woman whose strength, positive attitude, and sense of humour was an inspiration to me on many levels. Dorothy, your life made a difference to others, and you will be missed.

Condolence from Evelyn Webster on July 13th, 2018 6:07 PM

It is with great sorrow and happiness that I remember one of my favorite cousins. We had so many good times together when we were kids, seems we were the ones always in trouble. Then when she moved West we lost contact; went out to visit our kids and we connected again. Visited for many years and husband Ron and her got along great same kind of humor. All of our family will miss her so much. Our deepest condolences to all her family

Condolence from Dean Romfo Van Camp on July 15th, 2018 7:04 PM

We hope that positive and precious memories of your Mom, bring you peace as every day goes by.


Dean and Rick
