On May 4th we said goodbye to Dorothy Marie Kelker, whose brief and vibrant life has quietly come to an end.
During her 44 years with us she shared much joy, explored the world around her with curiosity, shared and contributed creatively, and touched and taught many with infectious enthusiasm. Till the end she was engaged in all that went on within and around her, welcoming birds to her window feeder and friends to her bedside.
Dorothy is held in love by her mother, Henriette Kelker (née Reinouts van Haga), sister Anke Kelker, partner Dan Brodribb, and a loving circle of extended family and friends around the world. Dorothy was predeceased by her father, Douglas Kelker.
We are grateful for all the support we have received along the way.
Dorothy loved all forms of outdoor life and sharing this with others. Donations in her name may be made to Special Olympics Canada or the Nature Conservancy of Canada, or, she suggests, “plant a tree!”
A celebration of Dorothy’s life will take place on May 20, at 7:00 PM at Southminster Steinhauer United Church in Edmonton.
