Dorothy Ann Watermulder
September 27, 1950 – July 27, 2019
On Saturday July 27, 2019 Dorothy Ann Watermulder passed away at the Grace Hospital after a brief battle with cancer; she was 68 years old.
Dorothy was born in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba to William Henry Little (Deceased) and Dorothy Josephine Little.
She will be deeply missed by her daughter Diann Burke and son Anthony Burke. Dorothy was a proud, loving grandmother to her three grandsons Wm Cyle, Noah and Kael and a wife to Husband Stoffer.
Dorothy grew up on the family farm in High Bluff, Manitoba with her parents and was the oldest of nine siblings; Barry (Joy), Sherry (Harold), Allan (Deceased), Marjorie (Deceased), Lori (Fred), Shelly, David (Jen), and Les. Family was very important to Dorothy, she was an aunt, great-aunt and great-great-aunt to numerous nieces and nephews, along with being a dedicated friend and co-worker. She had a life-long passion for sewing and she was a real go getter. After retirement her love for her garden grew, as did her joy of volunteering. Dorothy knitted for different homeless shelters and gave her time to The National Association of Federal Retirees after retiring from her full-time position with Western Diversification.
Mom’s cancer came on quick and unexpectedly; she was taken from us way too soon. Our family would like to express sincere and deep appreciation for her caregivers at the Grace Hospital who made her last days as comfortable as possible.
In-lieu of flowers, a cash collection bin for various animal shelters will be set up at her Celebration.
Friends and relatives are encouraged to share in a photo-tribute, eulogy, stories, and condolences for the family by commenting on the comments section of this page.
A celebration of her life will be held from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Sunday, August 18, 2019 in the lounge at St. James Lanes, 1805 Portage Avenue.
