Dot was born in Blakeburn BC and grew up with her family in Cumberland BC. She graduated in 1949 from St. Paul’s Hospital as a registered nurse. Mom loved being a nurse and cherished the lifelong friends she made at St. Paul’s.
Dot continued her career at Victoria Order of Nurses, Burnaby General Hospital and retired from Burnaby Home Care in 1992.
During their retirement, Dot and Dennis enjoyed golfing, travelling and spending time with family and friends. Mom was all about family and was a very caring and loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and Grammy. She will be forever missed.
