April 25, 1929 – February 22, 2020
Aunt Dora passed peacefully at the Bethany Care Centre in Airdrie, AB, with family by her side. Dora was the last of her generation; however, she is survived by 6 nieces and 14 great and great-great nieces and nephews.
Dora was born the youngest of 4 to Elizabeth and Fred Mortimer in Cochrane, AB, and moved to Kelowna as an infant. She graduated from high school and college, unusual for the time, always the independent woman. Dora worked for BC Tree Fruits until hired by the BC government where she served in many departments and communities throughout the province, her final for the Department of Highways as office manager in Merritt, BC, for the construction of the Coquihalla.
Dora loved to travel, golf, play bridge and whist, bake, and loved and was loved by her family and will be missed by all.
We give a very special thanks to all her caregivers and staff at the Bethany – couldn’t have done the last years without you! Messages of condolence may be left for the family at www.myalternatives.ca.
