It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy Gladys Code on February 27, 2016 at the age of 97 years. Dorothy was born on July 20, 1918 in Eston, Saskatchewan. She is predeceased by 7 brothers who all served in the Canadian forces in WWII.
Dorothy was known for her strong, proud, independent personality, her love of plants and her amazing memory of dates and birthdays and she never missed sending her love on that special day. She will be greatly missed by her children: Dennis (Sharon), Lois, Barbara, Merrill, Reginald and Hope Faye, along with all of her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and endless friends.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope, BC. A special thanks to Karen Severn and Kathy Doran for their extraordinary efforts and compassion. Dorothy was loved by all who knew her and she will be remembered.
Dorothy’s wishes were not to mourn her loss, but to remember and celebrate her life. There will not be a service at her request. Donations can be made in Dorothy’s memory to the Canadian Cancer society.
