Aug 2, 1914 - Nov 21, 2012
Dorothy passed away peacefully in her home on November 21, 2012 with her family by her side. She is survived by her twin daughters Elizabeth (Stuart) and Anna (Gary) and her 2 grandchildren Adam and Todd. Her family also includes two nieces, a nephew, and their extended family. She is predeceased by her loving husband Ray, her parents Anna and George Bartholomew, and her brother Bob (Irene). Dorothy enjoyed travelling with her friends and was a lover of music and the arts. She was an avid ice skater, tennis player and hockey fan. She had a great fondness for animals - dogs in particular. Her most cherished role in life was that of mother, grandmother and wife. Remembered for her kindness and accepting nature, she made everyone feel genuinely welcome, accepted and supported. Quiet and humble, Dorothy was so much more than the sum of her parts; a great lady in all respects. She will be greatly missed by all of us. She had so much love in her heart. Dorothy leaves behind the following message, "Love to all my family and friends who made my journey so wonderful - thank you."
A Celebration of Dorothy's life will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 1:00pm at Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Blvd, North Vancouver, BC.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to First United Church.
