1919 – 2014
Dorothy Evelyn was born on December 16, 1919, the last of the Cowley sisters, and she passed away from complications of a heart attack on February 28, 2014 in 100 Mile Hospital. She was 94 and I, her daughter, Cheryl Rose Murray along with Dorothy’s granddaughter Sylvia Warburton celebrate her ability (with the help of all the care aides) to stay in the home that she loved and tended to for the last 30 years of her life in Lac La Hache. Dorothy loved her garden, the natural beauty of the area and the home to which she and dad retired when they moved from North Vancouver. David Grant Reid predeceased his wife in 1988. We thank everyone who helped make mom’s dream a reality and will honour her strength with a memorial service celebrating her life on Sunday, March 16, 2:00pm at the Old Age Pensioner’s Hall in Lac La Hache, BC. Dorothy became a great grandmother on April 1, 2013 to beautiful Ruby Olivia; this gave her much joy. She will be forever in our hearts and memories.
