TASSONYI, Dorothy Isobel (nee Cantlay)

Jan. 31, 1923 ~ Nov. 29, 2014

Peacefully in her sleep in Surrey, B.C., at the age of 91.

Predeceased by her husband Edomer John Tassonyi and her brother, Grant and sister, Molly.

A long-time resident of White Rock, Dorothy will be dearly missed by her many friends and former colleagues in White Rock and Surrey. Born in Toronto, she completed Nursing at Toronto General Hospital and later pursued a career in Public Health Nursing. Dorothy was well known in the community for her role in establishing the Home Care Nursing Program with the Boundary Health Unit. She will be remembered for her love of people, animals, and life. Dorothy was grateful to Barbie & Tom Wiebe and extended family, and Denise McCune as well as the staff at Morgan Place for their kindness and care.

A private celebration will be held in her honour.

Donations in her memory could be made to The Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation or your local women’s shelter.
