Dot was such a thoughtful and caring aunt to us all...you will be missed dear woman, hugs
I've known Dot all my life and spent many an evening giving her a hard time while she babysat me and my siblings. Have spent many nights up past my bedtime listening to Dot's stories and her to mine. You have been missed for a while and will continue to be missed in my life. You were my friend, my aunt and so much more. I'll see you again in the afteflife.

Our deepest sympathy to you all and to us all too. Dot was always in my life. She was there when I was born and lived with us in Montreal for quite awhile . She knew how to comb my hair without hurting me. She always remembered us at birthdays and Christmas. She, CarolAnn and I had many all-nighters in Ottawa talking 'til dawn. She will always be lovingly remembered and missed. Sending love to you all. 💔
Sending lots of love and thoughts and prayers to the family I'll miss ya aunt dot ❤️ rip till we meet again

To Cathie, Bernie, Billy, & Martin: Aunt Dot: The great times we all had as you welcomed us into your home in Ottawa and the Cottage on the Island at any time! Always with open arms you took the time to feed us, listen to us and tell us many stories. I think of the times you and I would go to Bingo especially on your birthday where you would receive a free nights bingo pack of cards! You will be missed greatly but know that you will always live on in my heart. May you rest easy with Jim and Mandy in thethe next world. RIP sweet lady. I loved you so much and will miss you terribly. Love Ann & Paul.
