HERAUF, Dorothy Hilda

May 3, 1925 – January 6, 2018

Dorothy Hilda Herauf passed away on Saturday January 6, 2018 at Bow View Manor, Calgary, AB at the age of 92. She is survived by her six children; Colleen (Bertram), Brian (Darlene), Luanne (Rod), Jackie (Bob), Len (Cindy), Brad (Jana); thirteen grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Dorothy was predeceased by her loving husband Simon; her daughter Kathleen; granddaughter, Jaymee and great-grandson, Samuel. Dorothy will be remembered by most as a loving and devoted wife; a mother whose younger years were dedicated to her children, nurturing and molding them with care and compassion; a woman with strength and spirit that defied her small stature. But she was much more than that. Dorothy was open-minded and progressive beyond her time; she was hard working, virtually tireless, and possessed a stubborn determination in the face of adversity; she was very creative, most certainly as a cook, but as we learned in her later years also as a painter. She was also somewhat of an intellect who enjoyed curling up in her reading room with a good book. Dorothy never really cared for the spotlight but the way she lived her life she certainly deserved it. For those wishing to attend, there will be a memorial service held for Dorothy on Friday, January 19 at 11:00 a.m., held at Eden Brook Funeral Home, 24223 Township Rd. 242 (17th Avenue SW and Lower Springbank Road), Calgary AB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dorothy's name to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation, 1825 RD PK SE, Calgary, AB T2G 2P1. http://www.heartandstroke.ca.
