BALDWIN, Dorothy (nee Francis)
May 12, 1919 – April 14, 2014
Peacefully at home, Dorothy Mildred Winifred Baldwin in her 95th year. Daughter of the late John Francis and Margaret Holmes. Beloved wife of the late Gordon Baldwin. Much loved mother of Lorraine (Gordon) Reoch of Vernon, Dwayne (Sonja) of Almonte, Gerald (Valerie) of Calgary and the late Lorna Hill. Cherished grandmother of eight and loving great-grandmother of many. Predeceased by nine brothers and sisters. Dorothy will be sadly missed by her extended family, neighbors and her dear caregivers, Helen and Ann. Dorothy's garden, her "baby", will miss her tender care and we will all miss the bounty which was so proudly shared. Family and friends will be hugged for years to come through the afghans, sweaters, scarves, socks and mitts she knitted and crocheted for us. There is love in every stitch. Friends may call at the Daniels Funeral Chapels Inc., 472 Main Street, Winchester on Wednesday, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 10 a.m. Interment Maple Ridge Cemetery.
