Dorothy loved to read and throughout her life she read and collected books from a variety of authors. Often Dorothy would reread and would say “ there is nothing better than a good book”.
Dorothy will be forever in the hearts of her sister, Mildred Thiessen of Coutts, AB, her nieces Debra (Don), Michelle (Steve), Kelly and her nephews Randy (Joan) and Bruce.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
