Left to cherish her memory is her beloved husband Alan of 52 years; son Craig Simpson (Julia) of Mississauga, Ontario; Grandsons Curtis Simpson (Tanya) of Katy, Texas and Brent Simpson of Milton, Ontario; Great Granddaughter Kayla Simpson of Katy, Texas. She was predeceased by her parents Alfred and Irma Adams; sisters Lillian and Helen and brothers Frank, Bill, John, Stephen, Arthur and Ernie and her husband Alexander (Sandy) Simpson.
Dorothy was born in Winnipeg and moved to B.C. with husband Alan in 1978. Upon retiring in 1991 Dorothy and Alan relocated to Salt Spring Island.
Dorothy and Alan travelled extensively after retiring. She loved her gardening and would spend time regularly in her greenhouse, strawberry and raspberry beds.
As per her wishes, no funeral service will be held. Memorial contributions may be made to the Salt Spring Conservancy or the David Suzuki Foundation.
