Dorothy Alberta Skeates

Apr 22, 1923 – May 25, 2018
Dorothy Alberta Skeates, 22 April, 1923 – 25 May, 2018, born in Halifax, NS.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my Mom, Dorothy Skeates.

She was a very strong and determined individual with a fabulous sense of humour as those who knew her will attest to. She was a member of the Legion Ladies Auxiliary for many years and volunteered on several committees. My best friend and my rock!

She is survived by Maureen (Skeates) Primrose – daughter; Stephen Charles Skeates – son; Gregory Alan Primrose – grandson; and nieces and nephews.  

My family and I would like to especially thank all the staff at Polson Place Care Facility. You all are so exceptional!  You took excellent care of her and treated her with dignity and respect. She made you chuckle and she chuckled also!  To the staff in Emerg at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, 6th floor, 2 West and 3 North, my Mom received the best care. Dr Lepage, thank you for taking such good care of her all these years. She considered her visits to you as a ‘social hour’… as you know.  My Mom was a character and did things ‘her’ way.  As per my Mom’s wishes, there will be no service.
