Dorothy Farnsworth
1924-2018
Dorothy Farnsworth – age 94, passed away in Alderwood Rest
Home, Baddeck, on December 11, 2018. Born in Edmonton, Alberta to the
late George and Sarah (Begley) Barnes, she was a prairie girl who came
to love Nova Scotia and call it home. When the Second World War began
Dorothy followed the example of her older brother, John, by enlisting
in the Royal Canadian Air Force where she trained as a wireless
operator and soon became an instructor. While serving in the Air Force
she met a young airman, William (Bill) Farnsworth from Kentville, Nova
Scotia. They were married in October 1943 and later moved to the
Annapolis Valley where they raised their three daughters. Dorothy
worked for more than 25 years as an office manager for Canada Packers
in Port Williams. An avid gardener, she was a life member of the
Valley Gardeners Club and spent many hours volunteering in her
community and church. In 2009 she was awarded Volunteer of the Year
for Port Williams. She took a great interest in traveling and in
current affairs. After her husband passed away in 1986 Dorothy
continued to live in the family home, volunteering in her community
and tending to her gardens, and to her children, grandchildren and
great grandchildren, in whom she took great interest, pride and
delight. Her door was always open, and you could usually find at least
one grandchild, or even a daughter or son-in-law, staying there while
attending Acadia University or taking college courses. Her sons-in-law
were her « boys » and very special to her. In 2010 she
moved to an apartment and then, in 2016, to MacLeod House in Baddeck.
After suffering a stroke in January 2018 she spent four months in
Harbour View Veterans Unit in Sydney Mines and, in June, 2018, moved
to Alderwood Rest Home in Baddeck where she made many new friends. Her
sense of humour and quick wit will be missed by many. Dorothy is
survived by daughters, Marlene (Douglas) Mortimore; Ann (R. Charles)
Thompson and Mary (Neil) Kidston; sisters, Florence Pozzobon and Agnes
Hickey; grandchildren, Kimberly, Craig, Sarah, Alison, Erin, and
Emily; great grandchildren Sadie, Henry, Elliott, Dorothy, Willow,
Riven, Fern, Nora, and Hazel. She was predeceased by her parents, her
husband, William, and her brothers, John Francis and William Barnes.
The family wishes to thank the nurses, care workers, and staff of
Alderwood for the loving care they provided to our mother and for the
kindness and support they gave to us during her final days. Thanks
also to Dr. Elana Garcia del Busto, and the staff of both MacLeod
House and Harbour View Veterans Unit for their care and support.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 11:00
a.m. Wednesday, August 7, 2019 in the White Family Funeral Home,
Kentville. Donations in Dorothy’s name may be made to a
charity of your choice. Arrangements have been entrusted to the White
Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services,
Kentville.
