Dorothy Amy Abbott passed away on April 2, 2016 at Crest View Village in Creston, BC.

Dorothy grew up with her seven siblings in Granum, AB. After schooling, she moved to Vancouver to attend schooling for nursing and for a short while was a nursery nurse.

In about 1936 Dorothy and her brother Rex went to Wynndel, BC for work picking strawberries. There is where she met the love of her life, John Whitfield Abbott. She had to return to Vancouver, but they wrote each other every other week for almost two years, then were married in August 1939 and eventually settled in Wynndel, BC. Dorothy and Whitfield went on to raise four children, Barry, Denise, Susan, and Jon.

Dorothy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, businesswomen, and musician. She and Whitfield enjoyed spending winters in Hawaii and summers at the Kootenay Lake cabin with friends and family. Dorothy will be missed by all the many family members and friends she touched along the way during her life.

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband John Whitfield Abbott, and six of her brothers and sisters.

She is survived by her brother Mervin Goeson; children Barry Abbott (Marg), Denise Klootwyk (Ray), Susan Pearson (Larry), Jon Abbott (Heidi), and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A Service was held Sunday April 10, 2016 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Creston, BC.
