The Guest Book is expired.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dorothy
Elizabeth Smid (nee Elliott) of Cochrane, Alberta. Dorothy passed away
at the Foothills Hospital on August 11, 2017 at the age of 83, with her
family at her side.
Dorothy was the youngest child of Robert and Ivy Elliott. Born and
raised in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, she left home at a young age
and met her husband John while they were both working on cattle
ranches in southern Alberta. They decided to call Calgary home
and raised their family in the Hillhurst area. Dorothy moved to the
Cochrane area after the death of her husband in 1981. As well as
a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, she was a community
supporter and tireless business woman, running Artistic Flowers until her
retirement at the age of 78.
She leaves to mourn her children Bob, Ivy (Howard), Kenneth, and Suzanne (Kevin), siblings
Cecil (Joy) Elliott, Wilfred (Jean) Elliott, Muriel Johnston, ten grandchildren, several great
grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Her family was everything to her and she will be
greatly missed.
There will be a Celebration of Life at the Cochrane Legion on Thursday, August 17th
at 2:00pm. Please come to reminisce and share memories of our beloved Dorothy.
Donations may be made on behalf of Dorothy to the Lions District Youth Camp.
