PELLOW, Dorothy (Dot) Marie
September 4, 1938 - April 17, 2015
Dot was born in Windsor, Ontario, passed away at the
age of 76. She was the third of eight in a very close-knit
family and was predeceased by her parents John and
Jean Wigle; nephew Garreth Wigle.
She is lovingly survived by her son Marc (Ann)
Pellow and daughter Kim (Dave) Bartlett; seven
cherished grandchildren: Connor Pellow, Cody
(Cherisse) Bartlett, Brendan Pellow, Erinn Bartlett,
Timothy Pellow, Zane Bartlett, Hannah Bartlett; one
great granddaughter Skyler Bartlett. She will be sadly
missed by her brothers and sisters: John (Pat) Wigle,
Kathy Sloan, Mary (Roy) Harvey, Don (Beth) Wigle, Jim
(Janine) Wigle, Bob (Cara) Wigle, Bill (Bonnie) Wigle and her
many special nieces and nephews.
Dot grew up in London, Ontario. After marrying in 1961, she and her family
moved many times with the military, finally settling in Cochrane in 1978. Dot
made deep, lasting friendships while here. She enjoyed being an employee at
the University of Calgary where she worked in payroll then library circulation.
She retired in 2003 and was given a fond farewell by her colleagues. Dot was
a devoted parishioner at All Saints Anglican Church. She thoroughly enjoyed
being part of the church, spending time with her dear friends and family and
assisting at Bethany Care Centre. Dot was known for her delicious baked
goods. Her standards were high with the results being nothing less than
In 2006, Dot moved to Grand Forks, BC to be closer to her family. She
cherished visits from friends and family. Dot continued to serve the church at
Holy Trinity for as long as her health allowed her.
Dot thoroughly loved her family with the deepest possible love and she was
the same way with her siblings, nieces, nephews, friends and everyone she
met. She had a gentle way of making everyone feel special and valued. It was
a rare gift for one person to possess such caring and kindness. She was very
humble and it was so easy to love her dearly. We will very, very much miss our
mom, grandma, sister, aunt, neighbour and friend.
In lieu of flowers, Dot wished that donations be made to the Heart & Stroke
Foundation of Canada (atrial fibrillation), Holy Trinity Anglican Church or
All Saints Anglican Church.
