Dorothy Sloan

Dorothy Margaret Sloan

Born June 25 1919 in Victoria BC. Passed away peacefully in her sleep May 4th. Dorothy was a long time resident having moved here in 1972. She is pre-deceased by her husband Sy, son Randy, and grandson Gary.  “Dot” was an avid gardener and wasn’t happy unless she had dirt under nails and a fresh carrot to chew on.   Anywhere Dorothy lived soon became a lush garden.  The only enemies Dorothy ever knew were weeds! Dorothy had 6 children, 8 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, all will miss their “GG”. Dorothy amazed us all in the past year, recovering almost miraculously from a broken hip, she was back playing bingo, Mahjong, and Crib within weeks and could not wait to get back in her garden.  We all thought she would easily make it to 100!  You were a positive influence on all our lives and will be sorely missed, Mom, we love you.  Where ever you are now, may it always be spring, and your garden weed free!  There will be a memorial tea in June. Time and place TBA.
