Great-Gramma to Erin, Dana, Alexis, Spencer, Sebastian, Natailyn, Jeremy, Avery, Dominic, Abbigail, and foster great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her parents, John and Beatrice Huff; and in-laws, Norman and Helen Lotton. Dorothy was a dedicated farm wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She had a special place in her expansive heart for her grandchildren. She played a large part in their early years and they were the centre of her universe. She was content to feed anyone and everyone who entered her home. She loved a good card game, crafting blankets for the wee ones, and was a word search fanatic. Thank you to family, friends and neighbours who asked about her and supported her family during her battle with cancer. Thanks to Drs. Thomson, Kasianik, Moore and the specialists at the London Health Sciences Centre, as well as hospital staff for your kindness and expertise during Dorothy’s final journey.
