HECK, Dorothy (nee Mahaffey)
The Guest Book is expired.
April 16, 1928 - January 18, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dorothy, beloved mother of Ingrid (Francois) and Paul (Diana), grandmother to Gabrielle and Eric. Landing in Canada in 1954 and hailing from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Dorothy was part of a wave of emigration which helped to make Montreal a wonderful cosmopolitan city. Her beliefs and feelings are best reflected in the following words she selected from Psalm 91:
"And I will raise you up on eagle's wings
Bear you on the breath of dawn;
Make you to shine like the sun;
And hold you in the palm of my hand."
She thanked God every day for her blessings and passionately shared her wit and generosity with those around her. She is loved and will be missed by her family and her many friends.
