My husband George and I got to know Dorothy when we started sharing the same table for meals at The Court at Laurelwood. Her upbeat attitude and lovely smile was always a pleasure to see. We send our condolences to all her family - you were so lucky to have her for your Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother. Her suite was directly opposite ours and we miss seeing her every day.

Dorothy holds a special place in my heart. She was my neighbour for over 20 years and my go to person for my garden questions. Dorothy was always a positive person who loved to share a smile and a laugh. She made the world a better place!

Dianne, Lorrie, Jim, Karen, Scott and families. Our thoughts are with you and your families as you mourn the loss and as the same time, celebrate the long and incredible life of your mother.

I have fond memories of Aunt Dorothy from my childhood - especially how she reminded me of Grandma Hepburn.

She had a wonderful, productive life - as evidenced by the family legacy she has left behind. I am sure you and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will all miss her very much. ( I became a grandfather this past year - so I can only guess at the pride and love she must have felt).

Condolences and best regards,
Chris, Simona, Brittany (Blenkhorn), and Conor Hepburn
