Dorothy was a woman of great strength, bold character, who always thought of her family first. Her wit could make anyone laugh or pause, because you just never knew what she would say. Her love for her home town of Gaspe, was always carried closely in her heart. She will be dearly missed by everyone, her presence graced so many. We love you for always Mom, and we will never forget you.
The family would like to specially thank all the staff at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence, so many of them were touched by mom, it filled our hearts the care and attention they gave her and to us.

We send a special thank you to Odette, Dan (The Music Man) and to all the Doctors, Nurses, and PABs, from our heart to yours, we are forever grateful.
Mom requested no flowers, and asked that you donate to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence in her memory. This placed allowed her to live with dignity, joy and love. It allowed us precious time, moments and memories that will forever fill our hearts.
