Left us on January 27 at home at the age of 88 after her battle with cancer. Dora's welcoming and easygoing manner touched so many lives. She had so many close friendships through her passions for gardening, yoga, tai chi, bowling, carpentry, hiking, book clubs, and community organizations such as The Brown House Circle and the Star Gazers. She has been an anchor in so many lives. A true original, strong willed, inspiring, a soul to be reckoned with, independent, resourceful, a lover of music, dancing and the outdoors. She will be deeply missed by her children, Christine and Craig, her surviving siblings, her multitude of nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours too many to name. A remembrance celebration will be held once covid-19 restrictions allow. Funeral arrangements under the care and direction of the Munro & Morris Funeral Homes Ltd., 114 Main Street S., Alexandria (613-525-2772). In lieu of flowers or donations, during these difficult times be kind to one another. As a Memorial to Dora a tree will be planted in a memory woods. A tree grows-memories live.

Pour moi, ma tante Dora représente la joie. Elle prenait toujours le temps de me demander comment j’allais et toujours avec beaucoup d’attention. Je vais garder en souvenir sa joie de vivre et son rire ( Et les shooters de popsicles à la réunion de famille ). Elle était une femme incroyable. C’est un modèle de comment vivre. Je veux vieillir comme elle, être un soleil pour tout les gens autour de moi.

I will miss Dora's smile and her input re gardening, yoga and other conversations. She was an upbeat lady who had time for everyone. We are lucky when we meet the Dora's of the world during our lives.

Dora visited my garage sale in 2003 and conned me into selling her a stump puller; looked like a giant fish-hook. The deal wasthatshe would keep and avoid reselling.
Guess what??
A good girl and fun to be connected with.
