Dorah Ward

Dorah Ward passed away peacefully on January 10, 2013 at the age of 94.  Dorah was predeceased by her beloved siblings John Ward and Bertha Cameron all of whom were long-time residents of Salt Spring Island.

Dorah’s passion was golf and in her heyday played to a handicap of six.  In her later years, although unable to play, Dorah was an avid reader of golf magazines and loved to be driven around the Salt Spring course in a golf car and to chat with players.

Before her retirement and move to Salt Spring Island from Vancouver, Dorah spent her working life with the Government of Canada in various administrative positions.

Dorah loved the music of Johann Strauss and a good drink of Scotch whiskey. A happy person, Dorah’s regular greeting was “you’re great and I’m grateful”.

Dorah’s friends Nancy Andersen and Paul Joyce offer a very special thank you to the staff of Greenwoods, Dorah’s home for the past seven years, to Dr. Shane Barclay and to Donna Powell and Margo Greggains of Access Care Management.

At Dorah’s request there will be no service but donations to the Greenwoods Foundation in her memory and on her behalf would be greatly appreciated.
