“98½ years old” In loving memory of a kind and caring soul, Dorothy leaves to join husband, Ernest, step-son, George and his wife, Lillian, step-daughter, Laura Burt, step-grandsons, Garry and Bobby Honeyman, infant great-grandson, Andrew Hornell, and two brothers, Raymond and Jack Raper.

Dorothy was born in Alberta and moved to Johnson’s Landing on Kootenay Lake as a young child. She married Ernest while working in Lumberton, BC and they moved to Lumby, BC in 1941 where she lived the rest of her life. She loved her family deeply and had the greatest gift of hospitality. You never left her house without having tea and cookies. She was known as ‘Grannie’ by everyone who knew her. She will be sadly missed by all.

The Funeral Service for Dorothy will be held on Friday, July 8th, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Interment will take place in the Lumby Cemetery followed by a reception tea at the Lumby Legion Hall.
