Obituary

It is with deep sadness the family announces the unexpected passing of Dorothy on Friday, June 14, 2019 at age 85. She was surrounded by her family at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by many. Loving wife to Don for 65 years. Beloved mother to Beverlee (Glenn) Matheson, Brenda (Don) Moase, Sue (Doug) Homeniuk. Cherished grandmother to Bryan, Brad, Scott, Danielle and Lauren. Dear sister to Wayne (Evelyn) and predeceased by brother Clarence (Wilda). Dorothy was born in 1934 growing up on a farm outside Didsbury, Alberta. Don and Dorothy were married in 1954 and moved east, living in Hamilton, Montreal, Brockville, Toronto and Burlington. She deeply appreciated the many opportunities for them to travel together, having visited over 65 countries. Mom was generous and caring, and will be remembered for her charitable acts and homemade treats. She was an active volunteer all her life, and was currently involved with the children’s program at their church and seniors at Tansley Woods Long Term Care Facility. A woman of deep faith we know she is now fully restored and rejoicing in the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ.

Hi Don,
We are so sorry for your loss of Dorothy, but so grateful that we were able to see you once again since you and Dorothy left Peoples and Toronto some 15 years ago to go to Burlington. We have such good memories of time spent with you and Dorothy and getting to know you.
At your house parties each year between Christmas and New Years, I remember admiring some scented candles Dorothy had on her dining room shelf ... and then being blown away by her pointing out how much she disliked vanilla scented candles! Dorothy let her choices be known! The next thing I learned from Dorothy was how they had a family tradition of lighting candles and singing Happy Birthday Jesus on Christmas Day ... and of course it made perfect sense.
And Don you, the mountain climber and adventurer, were amazing, too.! You gave us a book on mountain climbing called Into Thin Air and after that we read every book we could get our hands on on mountain climbing! You were an extreme sport athlete before the term had even been coined, and we loved your interest in helping us find this kind of teen camp challenge for our Kris.
Thank you for all the memories, Don and Dorothy!
May your life adventures continue, Don, as Dorothy watches over you.
Blessings on you and your family,
Bill & Gale White

Harley and I met Don and Dorothy the summer of 1954 at the Nazarene church in Montreal. The four of us were all newlyweds, fresh from our respective honeymoons. We shared church, choir, and Sunday School activities. As our families grew, we kept in touch. After we moved to rural Quebec, the Suders came out for summer and fall picnics, their children and ours playing together on the stone walls and among the apple trees. We made return visits to them in Ontario and have met over the years at Mooers summer camp meeting in upper NY state, where Dorothy was always a busy hostess, volunteer, and teacher in the Children’s Church. I will miss Dorothy very, very much. Blessings to the family.

Dear Don, Bev, Brenda, and Sue:

My sincere condolences at the loss of your wonderful wife and mother. My memories of Dorothy are as sweet as her famous popcorn balls that we enjoyed every year at your Grey Cup party! She was a beautiful woman and a special friend to my mother (I can still picture them singing duets at Montreal First Church of the Nazarene), and I am grateful and enriched for having known her. You shall be in my prayers as you grieve your loss and celebrate her marvelous life.

With love and prayers,
Richard Thompson
