Dorothy was employed many years as a school bus driver in Georgetown, and more recently as a receptionist at the Buck Animal Hospital in Waterloo. The family would like to thank the wonderful caregivers at Eden House, Dorothy's home for the last seven years. Their support gave our family great solace in knowing she was well cared for daily. Dorothy will be fondly remembered for her delicious cooking, her great pool parties, her love of dogs, her beautiful afghans, and her baby blankets.
