PROBERT, Dorothy



March 25, 1923 – May 7, 2019

Dorothy’s family is saddened to announce her passing at the age of 96 in Red Deer, Alberta.  She was predeceased by her husband Rex in 2014.  Fondly remembered by her daughters, Heather (Terry) Hodgins of West Vancouver and Colleen (David) Hardy of Red Deer, and her grandchildren Sara (Robin), Kelly (Aaron), Lindsay (Jason), Alison and Evan (Jillian), her great grandchildren Dylan, Ronan, Sylvie, Ilse, Iona, Vaughn, Natalie, Ian and Sophie.

Dorothy was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and lived there before moving to Calgary in 1973 with Rex where they lived for 40 years, enjoying many years of retirement. Dot was a very loving and devoted daughter, wife, mother and grandmother.  A very stylish lady, she spent many hours sewing beautiful outfits for her young daughters and had a natural talent for interior decoration.  She also enjoyed a good game of bridge.

The family is grateful for the care and attention she received over the 5 years she lived at Revera in Red Deer.  The family also expresses our gratitude for the loyal companionship of Jane Crichton and for the kind and gentle care she received at Aspen Cottage during her final months.

A family service will be held at a later date in Moose Jaw where she and Rex will be interred. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name to the Cancer Society of Alberta or British Columbia would be much appreciated.
