Being married to an RCAF member, Dorothy and her husband Kenneth lived in numerous places before settling on their beloved Prince Edward Island. Dorothy enjoyed sewing and cooking for her large family. She was a regular attendee at the Charlottetown Driving Park during racing season and also enjoyed playing bridge with her many friends. Dorothy was an avid lawn bowler and curler and you could not get her away from the television if the Blue Jays were playing. Walking on a sandy beach during winters spent in Florida or on Prince Edward Island was something that she thoroughly enjoyed. Dorothy was a long-standing member of The Order of the Eastern Star - Frank H. Tingley #5, Moncton, NB; member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #1 Charlottetown Women’s Auxiliary and the PEI Women’s Institute.
