Dorothy passed away peacefully at Ian Anderson House on Monday November 22, 2021 in her 98th year. Dorothy was born and raised during her early years in Kahnawake Quebec. In her teens her family moved to Ste. Marguerite in the Lauerntians. There Dorothy and her sister Ethel became accomplished downhill ski racers, eventually becoming members of the Canadian Olympic team.

However Dorothy chose to put aside these pursuits to marry Frank, the love of her life, who she had met in the Laurentians and lived happily with for 62 years of marriage. While Dorothy was indeed a multi talented and gifted human being, her strongest gifts shone through in her loving, caring and compassionate nature which she shared abundantly with family, friends and community. Many have been truly blessed by her presence in their lives. It is with heartfelt sorrow that we see her leave from this world .
