Dorothy (nee Williamson) passed away peacefully on August 2, 2003 at home with her family by her side, our dear mother passed on to a better place, after a long battle with cancer. Dorothy was born August 8, 1929 in Miami, Manitoba, the eldest of two daughters. She graduated in 1946 and worked in the business world until she married and moved to West Vancouver. She later moved to White Rock in 1990, where many friends and family enjoyed sunny days by her pool, enjoying her unmatched hospitality. She recently spent Christmas and New Years in Hawaii with her children and grandchildren. A trip she described as her most enjoyable ever!
Leaving behind to represent her time on earth are her sons, Craig Graham and Sean Case, grandsons Sheldon and Kevin Case, her daughter, Leslie Graham and her loving dog, Ginger. She is also survived by her sister May Horner and family in Winnipeg. Dorothy was pre-deceased by her mother and father, Betty and Clif Williamson and her son, Dale Graham.
