Passed away peacefully at Sunnyside Home on Saturday, January 2, 2021 in her 101st year.

Beloved daughter of the late Albert and Eda Both (nee Warlich). Lovingly remembered by Dolly’s Brox and Toutant cousins, extended family, friends and those in her circle of care. Special remembrance by her goddaughter Brenda, close friends and family including Marie, Tiina, Donna, Jenny, Bonnie, Cerena, Vera, Marianne, Mary, Helena, Milli, Karen, Eva and the caring staff at Victoria Place, Sunnyside Home, Warm Embrace and the LHIN.

Dolly grew up in Kitchener and had a long, satisfying career working at McBrines, Inn of the Black Walnut, Valhalla Inn, Bingemans and Walper Hotel. Dolly was a life-long member of St. Matthews Lutheran Church, where until her later years, attended services faithfully every Sunday and volunteered for countless church activities.

Dolly lived her life with dignity, grace and strong Christian values. She was kind, generous and personable, always taking an interest in those around her to develop life-long friendships. Birthday celebrations marking Dolly’s 100th birthday were held in December. We are thankful to have had this opportunity to celebrate this milestone with Dolly.

A private funeral service, by invitation only, will be held at Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre, Kitchener, (519-743-8900). Interment to follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.

I can’t even put into words what a beautiful soul Dolly was and always will be! No matter if you were having a good or bad day, Dolly was such a breath of fresh air and new exactly how to put a smile on your face with her wonderful sense of humour! I will always cherish our time together.

I pray that her soul rests peacefully!

Dolly was a treasured cousin to the Toutant family. I always enjoyed acconpanying my parents, Paul and Doris, on visits to Dolly and, after my parents passed away, getting to know Dolly on another level. I admired her zest for life and valued hearing about her career and life experiences. What was truly special about Dolly was her keen interest in everything and everyone. She paid attention to every detail and was so appreciative of every gesture. Dolly, I will miss you and our chats.

Dolly meant a great deal to me- I loved her with my whole heart. I felt a deep connection with Her that I will forever cherish. To say that I will miss her is a great understatement.

Dolly was a treasure! To have known was to love her and I shall miss her dearly.

I am grateful for the times we shared: reading the Bible, praying, reading the record, having conversations about God, life, family, politics, news items, and yes, even laughing at the comic" for better or for worse"

Goodbye my friend.

Always,
Cerena
