Dorothy Grace Wilson (née: Deets), aged 94 years of the Tugaske District, SK passed away on Wednesday, June 1st, 2022 in Moose Jaw, SK. Dorothy spent her early years on the family farm in the Harley District in Saskatchewan until she met and married Thomas Wilson on July 11th, 1948. Together they raised 3 children.  Dorothy kept busy gardening, sewing, and taking care of the many animals. She was also active with the UCW and the Rebecca Lodge, where she made many life-long friends. Dorothy enjoyed watching Thomas and her boys compete in pony chuck wagon and chariot races. Occasionally she would take a trip with her girlfriends, which she thoroughly enjoyed and would often reminisce about. Dorothy was overjoyed to teach her granddaughters to bake, sew, and care for orphaned baby animals.

She was predeceased by her parents, 5 sisters, 2 brothers, and her loving husband, Thomas. Dorothy will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Marj (Bob) and their children; sons, Gerry and Larry (Brenda); their daughters, Twyla (Justin) and Larrissa (Jordan); great-granddaughter, Shayla; as well as numerous other relatives.
