Beloved wife of John, her husband of 40 years. Predeceased by her first husband, David Brown. Daughter of the late Dorothy and David Crawford. Loving sister to the late Valerie Nicholl and late David Malcolm Crawford. Loving mother of Debra (Giorgio) & Derek (Amy). Cherished Grandma to Nathon & Evan, Danielle & Ethan. Sister in law to Armand (Denise), Lucien (Marie-France), Jean (Sonia), Dominique (Emilio), daughter-in-law to Mama Renee Kast and special aunt to many nieces and nephews. Fondly remembered by her many Irish cousins both in Canada and Northern Ireland.
Dorothy started her career at Sealtest Dairy and then moved to the Ford Motor Company in Oakville before becoming the owner/operator of Marvelous Muffins at Market Square in Kitchener. After retirement, she started a new career in body esthetics to support her golf endeavours, among many other activities, including travels throughout the world on terra firma and the high seas.
Dorothy was an active member of Holy Trinity Church Kitchener for almost 40 years. She provided leadership and participated in two different Golf leagues, multiple Bridge Clubs, the Book Club and the Probus Club. She will be dearly missed by her many friends and family.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Grand River Cancer Centre for the care given to Dorothy. A special thanks to the PSW's and Nurses who provided palliative care and helped Dorothy remain at home for an extended time. In her final days, Dorothy stayed at Innisfree House, where she received loving and compassionate care from all the staff, as they kept her comfortable and pain-free.
We would also like to thank our many friends and extended family, both near and abroad, for their constant support in this difficult time, especially Father Joel for his spiritual guidance, the Mermaids and our Church family, whose gifts of love were dearly appreciated over these difficult months.
Cremation has already taken place, and due to Covid restrictions, the family has decided to postpone a memorial service at this time. An announcement will be made as to when and where the service will occur. Please send all inquiries to Derek@mhmpub.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Kitchener or Innisfree House as expressions of sympathy.

May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Rest in Peace, Dorothy; We love you, and you will be dearly missed.
