Dorothy Margaret Marjorie Green nee Nokes December 5, 1926 – November 14, 2019

Devoted Mother of Children Carol, Nancy, Richard and Beverly. Loving Grandmother to Peter, Mark, Bryan and Emily, Tiffany, Jennifer and Sarah, Natasha and Courtney. Special Grammy to Miles, Grace, Avery, Aryanna, Olivia, Simon, Alexander, Christopher, Maya, Kylen, Skylar, Aiden, Luke, Payton, Abby, Oliver, Elliott and Lincoln. Predeceased by husband Allan Miles Green (2014), daughter Janet (2010) and granddaughter Michelle (2018), parents Harry and Elisabeth Nokes and sisters Violet and Lillian.

Born in Oshawa and raised in Belleville, Dorothy moved to Cambridge when her husband was transferred with his job. Dorothy was a devoted wife and mother. Although she worked many different jobs over the years, her primary role was raising her children and supporting her husband. Dorothy retired from her position as Administrative Clerk at the Cambridge Hospital in 1986 after a 12 year rewarding career. For many years Dorothy was involved in many associations and activities and was recognized for her contributions and support. She was instrumental in establishing and supporting Trinity Community Table supplying meals for the underprivileged in the community. In 2015 Dorothy received the Women of Distinction Lifetime Award presented annually by the YWCA for over 35 years of service to the community. Dorothy was well liked and loved by many throughout her life. She leaves behind a large void that will be difficult to fill. She will be missed. In lieu of flowers Dorothy would appreciate donations be made to Trinity Community Table, Canadian Diabetes Association, Heart and Stroke or the Breast Cancer Society.

To the loving family of Dorothy.
I was very sad to hear about Dorothy’s passing. I had the extreme pleasure of doing her hair for 19 years. Dorothy was such a wonderful person, always positive no matter what life would throw her. She never complained , not ever, always so pleased to speak of her loving family during our weekly appointments and always interested in mine. The kindness she showed others is something I will always admire about her. I apologize for not being there in person to pay my respects on her final journey, but life sometimes makes things difficult on being where we would like to be. So, in closing I am sending my heartfelt sympathies to you all. May God keep Dorothy safe in his loving arms.
With deepest sympathies. Susan Bialek

To Carol and Bryan and all your family my condolences on the passing of your mother and grandmother Dorothy. I met her a few times at Jane's place when she was there with you for some special occasions. Wow I didn't know how many grandchildren and great grandchildren she had and quite the dedicated life to family and the community. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
