DOTY, Edith Evelyn

1925 – 2012

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Edith Evelyn Doty on April 26, 2012 in Vernon, British Columbia. Edith was born August 23, 1925 in Iron Mountain, Michigan, USA. She will be lovingly remembered by her four children: Ruth (Bruce) Blankley, Les (Marla) Doty, Dianne (Rolf) and Doris (Don) and her many grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. In 1976 she was predeceased by her husband Clarence Everett (Bob) Doty. Edith and her husband, Bob, were potato and beef cattle farmers. Where there was quiet time, she loved to read, bake cookies, play cards, knit and crochet socks, clothes and afghans for her family. She had a great love for her family as she was an excellent grandmother (Grandma) and great-grandmother (GG). In her later years she travelled to many countries and attended local Powerhouse Theatre productions. Above all else, she was a die-hard New York Yankees fan. There will be a private interment for the immediate family. A Celebration of Life for her friends and family will be held August 25, 2012. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Edith’s memory to her favourite charity, Double VM Bible Camp (9904 Kalamalka Lake Road, Coldstream, BC V1B 1L7). The family wishes to thank Interior Health and the staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their compassionate care. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
