as a member of the Happy Tracadonians Senoirs’ Club

tea and lunch. Dorothy loved to have her family around. She took
great interest in all her grandchildren’s
activities. She also loved reading, making charitable
donations, visiting the sick and elderly, talking on the phone to
family and friends for hours, a good joke, music and especially the
Newfie Fever dances. Christmas, when family and
friends dropped by, was always special to her.
She looked forward to receiving and sending a long list of
cards. For Dorothy’s day to start off
right she had to have The Halifax Herald, a
tradition that continued even in the nursing
