Dorothy peacefully passed from this life on Thursday, March 26, 2009, in the comfort of her own bed while reading one of her favorite books. She will be sadly missed by her many friends and relations both here and around the continent.
Dorothy was predeceased by her second husband Erik and was survived by her six children, Bruce Angus (Samantha) of Sundown, Man., Gordon Angus (Sharon) of Port Hope, ON, Robert Angus (Debbie) of Richmond Hill, ON, Susan Stacey (Ronald) of Vancouver, B.C., James Angus (Jeanette) of Orton, ON and Duncan Angus (Nita) of Etobicoke, ON; as well as twelve grandchildren, Meghan, Kayla, Lesley, Timothy, Penny, Sean, Lon, Jacqueline, Suzanne, Jessica, Ariel, Emme; and 13 great-grandchildren.
Dorothy was an amazing lady with a wicked sense of humour. She loved a good joke…on herself as well as on others. She was an avid reader, a great cook, and most important of all…a self-confessed fabric addict, and a great quilt maker, teacher and mentor.
Dorothy was born in Ontario in 1921, she moved here from Collingwood in 1987. Dorothy actively participated in many activities here in the Valley, including skiing, the jazz club, and many different arts and crafts. She was a member of the Denman Island Lacemakers and the Schoolhouse Quilters Guild. Dorothy fell in love with the art of quilting and became a noted quilter, both locally and nationally. She passed her love of fabric and quilting on to many others in the Valley and spent much of her time teaching others the art of quilting.
A tribute to Dorothy will be held on Thursday, April 16th at the O.A.P. Hall in Cumberland at 3 pm.
