Dorothy May King

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grand-mother. Dorothy was surrounded by her husband Earl and her children, Sharon (Manuel), James, Deborah (Mel) & Douglas. She will be deeply missed by her 10 grandchildren & 9 great-grandchildren.

Her love of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be sorely missed. She was so anxious to meet her 2 new additions in February and had her knitting needles working overtime. Dorothy is also survived by her brother Jim Wilkie (Barb) and Pat Sully (John), both living in Ontario

Dorothy graduated from St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Toronto, Ontario in 1951. Dorothy was an RN who enjoyed her profession and worked hard ensuring she provided the best care. Dorothy retired from the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops and is remembered to this day by her nursing friends in Toronto Ont. and San Jose, CA. Dorothy’s network of friends was coast to coast in both Canada and the United States.

Dorothy was a very dedicated wife and much loved by her husband Earl. They were to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on November 16th.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. in the Anglemont Senior Center.
