Our hearts are heavy to announce the passing of Dorothy Eileen Gunn on December 7, 2020, at the age of 92.
Dorothy was born in Moose Jaw and spent her early years in the Briercrest and Buttress areas and attended Red Lake School. She moved to Moose Jaw to attend business college, married George, and raised her family and built her life. To many she was known as the “The Tupperware Lady” selling Tupperware for 45 years receiving numerous awards and recognition for her manager and sales accomplishments both locally, provincially, and for Western Canada. One of Dorothy’s greatest treasures was her family. She loved spoiling them with delicious meals and yummy baked goods whenever there was time together. Dorothy enjoyed many hours with her dear Wes at the Legion and the Army and Navy Vets playing shuffle board and taking great pride the year they won the seniors provincial championship. Anyone that knew Dorothy loved her whit, the way she could always make you laugh, her calmness and gentle voice.
Dorothy lived a full life and there wasn’t much that could slow her down even in her final days. She will be greatly missed but leaves many treasured memories.
Dorothy joins family that has left before her, her husband George in 1990 and second husband Wes in 2013 and a daughter Barbara (Larry) in 2015. Dorothy leaves behind daughter Carolyn (Mark) Clark, son Neil (Laurie) Gunn. Grandchildren Lyle (Jennifer) McIntyre, Greg McIntyre, Shayne (Michelle) Tucker, Jeremy (Miranda) Tucker, Ramie (Alexis) Tucker, Donavin, Alex, Parker, and Jordan Gunn. Dorothy will also be missed by 16 great grandchildren and her three sisters, Shirley, Darlene and Merle.
Due to COVID there will be no funeral at this time. The family is very grateful for the care given to Dorothy this past year at Crescent Park Villa and to the staff at Caleb Village where she lived for five years.
In Dorothy words “Bye Bye for Now”.
