Suddenly, but peacefully, our amazing Mom, Dorothy Carswell (nee Briscoe) returned to God’s grace at the Edmonton General Palliative Care Unit Sunday, January 4, 2015. Dorothy was 82 years old, beloved wife of Harold (deceased).
Survived by brothers Danny (Maryjane) and Rod, Dorothy is also lovingly remembered by daughter Louann (Kevin); sons Chris (Laurie), Donnie (Sheila), Michael and Wade (Mary); stepdaughters Heather and Carole; along with stepson Andy. Predeceased by her loving grandson, Bobby, Mom was also a very proud grandma to Sean, Sarah, Amanda, Adam, Chelsea, Cassandra, Carla, Kaillie, Jake and Josh.
Mom was born in Toronto and raised five children as a single parent with pride. Mom married Harold and after living in Chilliwack for 25 years, she moved to Olds, then Edmonton, to live closer to her daughter, Louann.
The family will hold a celebration of Dorothy’s life in the future.
Many thanks to the staff at Rutherford Heights Retirement Home and the Edmonton General for all the wonderful care and love they gave to our Mom in her last months, hours and minutes.
