She went on to work at Gainer’s Meats until she moved to Pitt Meadows in the late 1950’s where her and Woody built the family farm. In 1975 Woody and Dot moved to Clinton to realize their dream of living in the Caribou after one year in Sicamous. In the early 1980`s Dorothy moved back to Maple Ridge where she was very involved with the Haney Presbyterian Church and spent the last of her working years as the bookkeeper at Pitt Meadows Meats. After her retirement Dot became involved with The Canadian Red Cross and volunteered weekly. A service is to be held on Friday September 17th 2010 at Haney Presbyterian Church, 11858 – 216th Street, Maple Ridge, BC. Internment will be held at a later date in Clinton, BC.
