Dorothy “Dolly” Gavel

January 3, 1920 – December 12, 2012

Dorothy was born in Asquith, SK on January 3, 1920 and fell asleep in death at St. Joseph’s Hospital on December 12, 2012 with loved ones by her side. She will be remembered for her strong faith in her Creator Jehovah God, as well as her love for her family, beautiful music and poetry.

As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, it was very important to her to share with others her faith and hope in the Bible’s promise of a paradise earth under a righteous rule by Christ. Dorothy is now safely in Jehovah’s loving memory awaiting resurrection.

Dorothy was always grateful for the kind care she received from her home-support workers.

Predeceased by her husband George Gavel and 4 of her siblings. Survived by her older sister Vera Meachem of Edmonton, AB, as well as her 4 children Marie (Ken Wyker), Larry (Linda), Dale (Cindy) and Mel (Karen), 13 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held Saturday December 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 1581 Dingwall Road, Courtenay.
