CUSSEN, Dorothy Louise. January 4, 1925 – October 29, 2013. After spending loving hours with both of her daughters, Dorothy was sent on her way with a kiss from her husband, Noel “See you in Heaven” he whispered. Dorothy was cherished by her children, Jim (Meg), Siobhan (Wayne) and Melissa (Gerald) and adored by her grandchildren, Kevin, Liam, Jessica, Brendan, Taylor and Michaela. She was predeceased by her mother Rose, her father Percy, her brother Leo and her dear sister, Mona. She was born in Liverpool, England. Dorothy believed each day of her life was a gift and shared that belief with everyone she touched, bringing a ray of sunshine to even the darkest days. She always found the bright star in every situation and found a way of standing behind everyone’s thoughts and wishes. She loved playing Bridge with “her girls”, and was a loyal volunteer with the Red Cross and the Hospital Auxiliary for as long as she could. Dorothy did not fear death and was at peace with herself. She went when she was ready and on her own terms. Heartfelt thank-you’s to the angels at Ocean View Care home where she lived for the last year of her life. Your love and care was endless and meant the world to all of us.
We all have our memories with Dorothy and she would want us to carry them happily with us in our hearts. A Celebration of Dorothy’s Life will be held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, on Tuesday, November 5 at 2:00 pm followed by a gathering at their family home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Rest in Peace Dot. We all loved you. Hasta La Vista.
