1924-2012 With deep sadness we announce the passing of Dorothy Alice Ashton (nee Montpetit) on September 19, 2012 at the age of 88. Loving daughter of the late Doretta Brereton and Omer Montpetit. Beloved wife of the late Norman Ashton and sister of Ruby. Devoted Mother to her five children, Sandra, Stephen, Stanley, David and Margaret. She leaves behind her grandchildren and their extended families and many grateful friends.
The Guest Book is expired.
Mother was a strong, independent spirit working into her late 70's, with an avid interest in the world around her. She was a woman of service. During her lifetime she worked, helped and cared for numerous people, always giving her best. In her spare time reading, knitting, cooking, taking care of her flowers and picking blueberries up north at Lake Ashton not to mention playing cards were her preference.
Her hardworking hands have come to rest with the Lord. GOD BLESS YOU MOTHER.
A Memorial service will be held on the 20th of October, 2012 at 11:00 am at the Anglican Parish of Mascouche, Grace Church, 2174 Boul. Ste Marie, Mascouche, Qc. For those of you who wish to express their sympathies please access The Gazette Guest Book. In lieu of flowers the family requests that a donation be made to the charity or research fund of your choice in Dorothy's name.
