NELSON ~ Dora


Oct. 25th, 1928 ~ Dec. 20th, 2007


Peacefully on December 20th, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Pre- deceased unexpectedly in August 2007 by her husband of 53 years, Lloyd. She is survived by her loving family, daughter Linda (Ken), son Stephen (Diana), grandchildren Lindsay and Craig (Kim), sisters Betty LeBlanc, Lillian Scobie and brother Gerald Lentz all in Ontario, sister-in-law Mary Lentz, and many nieces and nephews. Dora was loved very much and will be missed by all. Both her and Dad will be remembered as great hosts who had some of the best parties ever. Family and friends enjoyed many a night playing shuffleboard, pool, games and cards at their place, always with enough food to feed an army. They are both at peace together now and hopefully Dad can win some of his money back again playing crib, a quarter a game, a penny a point, double for skunk!

Thank you to the caregivers and nurses and Hawthorne Care Centre for their kindness and caring to both our parents, Mom’s home for the last 5 years and Dad’s second home, visiting her on an almost daily basis.


In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.
