Dorothy May Buchanan


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother and friend on the evening of Sunday, May 20, 2018 at the remarkable age of 98 years.

For the past few years, Leduc had become her home, but the majority of her years were spent in the Breton area. Together, Dorothy and her husband George worked extremely hard and were blessed to have raised five children. 1975 was a difficult year for Dorothy and her family, as they grieved the loss of her husband George. In time, the family grew to include 14 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Dorothy will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her children, Bill (Judy), Reg (Carol), Lloyd, Ed (Michelle) and Judy (Bernie) Tetreau along with their families; sister, Myrtle (Evans) Carson, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and many life-long friends.

She was predeceased by her loving husband, George; sisters, Marion and Violet and brothers, Walter and Charlie.

Funeral Services will be held at Breton Community Hall on Monday, May 28, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. with interment to follow at Breton Cemetery.

For those who so desire, memorial contributions in Dorothy’s honour may be made directly to the Breton Community Hall Building Fund or to the Breton Golden Age Club.

She was a lovely,sweet lady.I worked in our local grocery store in Breton (before scanners). The days when your order was put into a paper bag or a cardboard box.There was always time to chat about her family as I rang her groceries through on the old cash register at Sexton’s or Grzyb’s.
