Dorothy married her love Victor on September 27, 1969 and had 3 children, 8 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. She lived her married life as a farmer’s wife and devoted mother and friend. She was also a hairdresser, and worked at VON which was her passion. Dorothy accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour in 1979. She lived her life loving her family and friends, and dedicated to God. She loved her family and was an inspiration to everyone she met. She was always happy and smiling until the end. She read her bible faithfully and believed in God’s promises, and believed her soul is with Christ. She fully believed that “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8. Due to recent health concerns, a private family service was held at Eaton Funeral Home on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 followed by a public celebration of Dorothy’s life to be held at a later date. Dorothy’s funeral service was streamed live on Wednesday. The link is available on the funeral home website.
