Dorothy Mark (nee Gillis)

August 15, 1922 – June 24, 2018
A delightful woman has left us. Born in Trail, BC Dorothy attended Normal School in Victoria BC and then taught in the Trail district for over 35 years. Dorothy was predeceased by her husband Lorne and her siblings. Left behind to lovingly remember her are her nieces and nephew, their families, cousins and friends.

For many years Dorothy and Lorne enjoyed adventures on their boats Docky I and II. After retiring and moving to Sidney, BC they took great pleasure wintering in Arizona until they could no longer make the long drive. Then cruises became a source of delight.

Dorothy’s gracious and warm personality was a pleasure to the residents, staff and volunteers at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Extended Care Unit for the past 5 years and her wonderful smile will be missed.

Special thanks to Mary (Sam) McGovern who was such a kind and loving friend to Auntie Dorothy.

There is a 10 am mass on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at St. Elizabeth Church, 10030 Third Street, Sidney, BC Fr Rolf Hasenack officiating.

The family will have a private celebration of Dorothy’s life at a later date.
