Dorothy was born in Deseronto Canada October 2nd 1927 to Jim and Ada Hunt. Dorothy was an only child who loved life. She achieved a degree in physical and health education at the University of Toronto, and went on to work for the Y.W.C.A Dorothy would take any chance she could to travel even if it meant hitch hiking. She once hitch hiked all the way to Mexico with her good friend Gladys. Dorothy soon found B.C where she fell in love with the mountains and ocean, where she could do all the activities she loved to do like hiking, camping, horseback riding, swimming, skiing, skating, and later on she took up taichi and loved to go for walks, especially at goose spit.

Everyone new Dorothy as the artist and that she was, she loved to paint landscapes in water color especially the glacier. She had a special admiration for renowned artist Toni Onley who would drop in from time to time with his float plane when she lived on the dyke road and had studio on the river. She can now visit with him once again. Mom really enjoyed family and friends. she took a special joy in get together for any reason, lunch, dinner, walks or an art class with her friends with a special thanks to Kate and Christine who made every Monday a special Monday right to the end. Mom really did love life and people, she saw no bad in anything or anybody, we all lost a very beautiful person august 17th Mom was loved by all who came into her life. God is very lucky to have you back in his arms and like you said Mom it’s not bye, it’s until we meet again.
