Dorothy Elsie Victoria Nelson

Jul 14, 1922 – Jun 8, 2018
In the late evening of June 8, 2018 our mother, Dorothy left us peacefully to join her beloved, husband Dick.

Born on July 14, 1922 in Caterham, England she met Dad during WWII where they married and had two of their three children before moving to Enderby, BC. They later moved to the home in Vernon Dad built where they lived for many happy years.

Dorothy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her British sayings and sense of humour will be sadly missed.

Predeceased by her husband Dick, and brothers Jack and Herb, Dorothy leaves behind her two sons Richard Nelson (Gwynneth), Robert Nelson (Melba) and her one daughter Christine Carlson (Bob); granddaughters and grandsons Kathryn Lissa (Trent), Christopher Kilback (Diane), Kirsten Bews (Wes), Treena Nelson, Kelly Nelson (Danielle), Chelsey Newton (Craig), Amanda Harder (Geoff) and 15 great grandchildren: Connor, Annika, Nevada, Gunnar, Jaegar, Alicia, Emma, Joshua, Katelyn, Teegan, Emily, Avery, Ethan, Nolan and Malia.

As per Dorothy’s wishes there will be no service. The family will celebrate her life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Dorothy may do so to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or any charity of their choice.
