DOROTHY LIVINGSTONE CAMERON June 5, 1944 - April 21, 2014 Dorothy Cameron passed away peacefully at St. Michael's Hospital Palliative Care Unit, with loving friends at her side. Dorothy was the second child of Hugh and Mary (McMillan) Cameron, of Ardchattan Home Farm in Argyllshire, Scotland. Dorothy is survived by her sister, Mairi (Cameron) Webster and husband Alastair; her brother, Archie and wife Gail; two nieces, Clare Wood and husband Ian and Linda Carter and husband Bob, as well as three grandnieces, Eilidh, Isla and Carys and one grandnephew, David. In addition to her Scotland relatives, she will be greatly missed by the Macrae family of Guelph and many friends. Dorothy began her education in the Highlands, in a small, rural school, but she aspired to learn, and eventually, after achieving degrees from Glasgow and Bradford Universities in the UK, she immigrated to Canada, where, on leaves from her employment, she obtained graduate degrees from Harvard and the University of Michigan. Dorothy worked for many years in the Ontario Public Service. She began her career in the 1970s in the Ministry of the Attorney General. From there she held numerous managerial positions in various ministries including Community and Social Services, Government Services and Health and Long-Term Care. In the past few years, even before retiring in 2012 and even after becoming ill, Dorothy pursued another interest: she often journeyed to New York City on weekends to see as many plays as possible. Dorothy loved art and travel and especially the Scottish and Canadian children in her life. She will be dearly missed. The visitation will be held on Monday, April 28th, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer, at Bloor and Avenue Road. The funeral will take place at the church on Tuesday, April 29th at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the "Step into the Future Campaign" at the Church of the Redeemer would be appreciated.
