Dorothy Elinor Perfetti (nee Short)

September 24, 1928 – February 19, 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Dorothy Elinor Perfetti announces her passing, at the age of 92, at Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm, BC.
Dorothy was born to Silas and Gladys Short, in Pibroch, Alberta.
She was predeceased by her son Kevin Perfetti, her husband Victor Werboweski and son-in-law Jim Miller.
Dorothy will be lovingly remembered by her children: Susan Clarke (Claude), Sharon Sawatzky (Dennis), Darrell Perfetti and Sharleen Miller, her six grandchildren: Carley, Ryan (LaTasha), Stephen, Marcus (Laura), Jared (Desiree) Spencer (Michelle), her seven great grandchildren: Avery, Meghan, Avery, Peyton, Ayvah, Ayris and Wyatt and many other relatives and friends.
Mom enjoyed spending time with her family, growing a flower garden, her hummingbirds, sewing, knitting and reading. Also, she looked forward to the coffee group on the weekends by which she will be greatly missed.
Mom volunteered as President of the Ladies Auxiliary at our local Salmon Arm Legion, Branch 62, where she was a lifetime member.
We give special thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff who were involved with giving Mom such wonderful care and kindness in her last days.
Due to COVID there will not be a Celebration of Life at this time. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in her name to a Charity of your choice.
