WHITE, Dorothy Marion (nee Hilz)
January 19, 1936 – Beiseker, Alberta
May 13, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Dorothy, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at the age of 78 years. Dorothy loved music, camping, raising her family, and spending time with her grandchildren, friends and neighbours. She was also a wonderful cook, and loved to bake. She was a generous soul, who always put forth 100% towards family and friends. She taught selflessness, unconditional love, understanding, forgiveness, and the importance of family.
Now I lay me down to sleep
I praise the Lord, my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord, my soul to take,
*Taught by her mother Helen*
