Passed quietly to rest after 97 glorious years of life. Predeceased by her beloved husband of 71 years, Bob. Loving mother of Bruce and his wife Pat, Peter and his wife Lori, Martha and Lee. Lovingly missed by grandchildren: Amy, Sarah, Michael, Emma, Nicole and Brennan and great-grandchildren: Nora Finnian, Hunter and Aven. Dora is survived by her brother Morley and his wife Bernice. She is predeceased by her parents Alfred and Edith Tolton of Walkerton; and her sister Joan of Elora.
Dora's quiet strength and steadfastness, although not always obvious, was a constant presence in the lives of her family. These qualities, among many others too numerous to mention, helped her through many moves, the comings and goings of many friends and relatives, and both good and troubled times.
In a life of many travels, we wish her bon voyage and Godspeed.
