Kathleen (Kaddy), long-time resident of Rossland, passed away peacefully on February 7th at Rosewood Village. Kaddy was born on March 22, 1922, in Moose Jaw, SK. Her parents, Wilfred and Albertine Dorey, moved back to Rossland with her when she was a small child.
Kaddy was an active member of the Rossland C.W.L. for many, many years. She was an avid bridge player and active volunteer in the community – the Library and Baby Clinic to mention a few. She enjoyed travelling, camping, x-country skiing, snowshoeing but most of all she loved baking, cooking, and caring for her family and friends.
Kaddy is survived and will be greatly missed by her daughter, Judy of Vernon, sons; Lawrence (Donna) of Vernon, and Mark (Wendy) of Warfield, daughters-in-law; Marjorie of Salmon Arm, and Mae of Armstrong, her step-daughter Faye from Post Falls, Idaho, her 16 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren, sisters-in-law; Patsy Dorey of Rossland and Sadie MacAulay of Seattle along with numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
Kaddy was predeceased by her first husband Bruce MacAulay, her second husband Tom Clark, her sons; Robert MacAulay and Kenneth MacAulay and brothers; Willie Dorey and Lawrence Dorey.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rossland on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 10:30 am with Father Ben Buela, Celebrant. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
The family would like to thank the staff at Rosewood for the excellent care Mom received during her time there.
