Dorothy was born in Vancouver on June 22, 1918, where she grew up. She passed away in White Rock on April 12, 2009.
She married Bill Kleaman on May 22, 1943 and a few years later they moved to Parksville where they spent many happy years, most of it at their home on Temple Street.
Dorothy enjoyed being a homemaker, being a mother to daughter Shirley, playing badminton in the old Community Hall, bowling, and many years of fishing off French Creek with Bill and Shirley.
In July of 1989 they moved to White Rock but always missed Parksville and their many friends.
Dorothy is survived by her loving husband Bill, daughter Shirley Willam, son-in-law Joel, her brother Capt. Jack Bruno (Jean) and nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She will be missed by all who loved her.
Service to be held on Tuesday, April 21, at 1:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Home in Surrey, BC
