Obituary of Dorothy Wedlake

Dorothy Wedlake Peacefully, with her family by her side, Dorothy passed away on August 17, 2009 at the Seven Oaks Hospital at the age of 82 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Karen (Jack) and Barb, and by her son Bob (Michelle). Her grandsons Matthew and Kyle held a very special place in her heart. Many nieces, nephews and friends will miss Dorothy. She was predeceased by her husband Hubert, and her parents Margaret and Albert Davis. Dorothy was born and lived her entire life in West Kildonan. Before her marriage she worked for the Manitoba Telephone System and made many friendships that lasted over fifty years. These friends, combined with her childhood church friends developed into a wide social network. She was a longtime member of St. Anne's Anglican Church, and was very involved in all the activities associated with the St Anne's Ladies Group. In her spare time, she enjoyed baking cookies. "Grandma Dot" was known for her ginger snaps, peanut butter chocolate chip and M&M cookies. She was also an avid Blue Bomber fan, and in her later years looked forward to the weekly Bingos at her residence at 1080 Powers Street. The family would like to thank Bernie and Elizabeth from the WRHA, and especially the girls who spent many years enabling Dorothy to remain as independent as possible. Holly, Carol, Tess, Loni, Irene, and Evelyn—we are extremely grateful. Also Thank-you to Dr. Fatoye and the Emergency Staff at Seven Oaks Hospital for your compassionate effort and care. Lastly, a special Thank-you to Bill and Jean Wedlake, Frank and the late Marguerite Wedlake, and Keith and June Cory for their visits over many years. Although she slowed physically, Mom remained a dynamic participant in all family and church activities. She was easy to please, never placed demands upon anyone, and always had a smile on her face. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anne's Anglican Church, 253 Burrin Avenue at Aikins Street. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to St. Anne's Church or The Society of Manitobans with Disabilities.
