REUTER, Dorothy Eileen

April 7, 1915 – Edmonton, Alberta
October 16, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Dorothy (nee Zwicker) passed away quietly at the age of 102 years, at the Chinook Continuing Care Centre on Monday, October 16, 2017.

Dorothy worked as an administrative assistant for many years. She enjoyed gardening, travelling, reading and sewing, especially creating figure skating dresses for her three daughters. She also knit numerous blankets for the pets at the Edmonton Humane Society. Dorothy was thoughtful and caring always considering others before herself. She enriched lives she touched and dealt with challenges with grace. After a long life’s journey, she is now at peace and can swim and dance to her heart’s content. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her loving daughters and sons-in-law Vicki and Jack Wilson of Calgary, Terri and John Halliday of Kauai, HI, Nona Trujillo of Post Falls, ID; granddaughter Abigail Bhattacharya; great-grandsons Rochon and Makalo; nephews Tony Young, Edward Kirkwood; niece Joan Bever and long time special friends Esther and Shirley. She was predeceased by her sister Kay Young; former husband Lloyd Reuter; son-in-law Don Trujillo and niece Elaine Schiele.

Respecting Dorothy’s wishes, no memorial service will be held. Flowers gratefully declined. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 200, 119 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1Z6 Telephone: (403) 264-5549, or your choice of any animal welfare organization.

The family thanks the Staff of Foster’s Way for their kindness and support over the past three years. As Mom would say, ending her telephone conversations, “I’m going, going, and I’m gone”.

In living memory of Dorothy Reuter, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Deerfoot South, 12281 – 40th STREET S.E.. Telephone: 403-203-0525.

  3. Vicki & Jack – I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. It was great to read about her life through this eulogy though. 102 years is incredible and I hope we can all be so lucky. Love you both and I hope you are both doing okay.

    I will give you call this weekend and I hope to see you both when I’m in Calgary before Christmas.

    Love, Anthony
