To all the McFadden family. To you all – condolences as you journey through the loss of your mom. Hard days ahead. It is never easy. This generation of seniors are a strong bunch of men and women. You are all in my thoughts and prayers
Remember the good times and Dorothy will always be with you. Thoughts and prayers for all of you. Dorothy was my husband’s first school teacher and he was very fond of her She always asking him how he was doing if she saw him. Great friend to everyone in the quilting club
Our deepest condolences to all of Dorothy’s family. We knew her in our Newberry community and then through bowling. She bowled on my Mom’s team for many years. She was a very talented person with so many interests. A life well lived.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the McFadden family. May your sadness turn to so many Fond memories.
Most sincere condolences to all Dorothy’s family. She was the Co-op cashier for us.
Very sad to hear of Dorothy’s passing. Many nice memories of the time her and mom at the coop, and when uncle Clarence and Aunt Catherine lived first upstairs at grandma Ericksons then in their house on Fairford west ( if memory is correct) every time I saw Dorothy I would remember and think of uncle Clarence. She had such a beautiful smile and was always so kind ! I am grateful I got to see her again before she passed, even though it was at Auntie Doreen’s funeral! My deepest sympathy to her entire family. I know she will be deeply missed.❤️
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you take comfort and celebrate your many wonderful memories!
Lorne and Betty Calvert
