    Dorothy was a cherished member of the Meaford 55+ Club. She was always willing to go anywhere and experience life’s adventures. I remember well listening to her talk of her cherished train rides out west. Best mode of transportation anywhere she would extoll.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Dorothy. During her years attending the Anglican Church in Meaford she met my mom Sharleen and they formed an instant bond. Dorothy spent a lot of time with our family before my mom got ill. We loved hearing her stories and loved her enthusiasm for life. She became part of our family for awhile and we loved her! I’m sorry for your loss. The Schefter family.
