ANDREWS, Dorothy Margaret
(nee Arbuckle)
February 28, 1915 – December 8, 2012
Dorothy was born and raised in Crystal City, Manitoba, in the good company of sisters Agnes and Edith and brothers Glenn, Herb and Roy. In 1939, Dorothy, accompanied by Agnes, moved to Winnipeg, where she found work with Eaton's. In 1943, she transferred to Eaton's in Edmonton, and she remained there as a loyal employee of the company until her retirement. In 1969, Dorothy married Melville Andrews, her childhood sweetheart, and together they set up house, first in North Surrey and then in White Rock.
Dorothy and her wicked wit will be remembered with great fondness by stepson Glenn and the Andrews family, and by nieces Tannis Maag, Janice Myers, Fern Splichal, Dale Woolner, Margaret Yeo and nephews Jim Abernethy, Gord, Ken, Herb, Doug, Derek and Graeme Arbuckle.
A service of remembrance will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013, 2:00 p.m. at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, Surrey, BC, and a celebration of the lives of Dorothy and her sister Agnes will take place in Crystal City Man. in summer 2013. In lieu of flowers, donations to the CNIB would be greatly appreciated.
