Mrs. Dorothy Raymond passed away on January 15, 2011 at the Slocan Community Health Centre in New Denver. Dorothy has struggled for a number of years with failing health, and her surviving family wishes to thank friends and neighbours for the loving support given to her over the last few years.
Dorothy was born in Duchess, Alberta on January 19, 1928. She moved to the Castlegar area with her husband, John, in the early 1970’s. Dorothy had a lifelong passion for gardening. She was an accomplished bridge player. She was also an avid golfer and an active member of the Castlegar Golf Club. Perhaps her most memorable feature was her outspokenness and her unflinching honesty and integrity.
Dorothy is survived by one brother, Dave Mathews; her children, Seth, Margaret, and Carol; as well as her 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. At Dorothy’s request there will be no service.
