Dorothy Elizabet Thompson
May 8, 1927 – June 5, 2014
On the fifth day of June 2014, Dorothy Myers Thompson died at the Eagle Park Health Care Facility in Qualicum Beach, BC, where she had resided for the past year and a half. Dorothy was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan on May 8, 1927 to Rowley and Kathleen (Watts) Myers who had emigrated from England.
Dorothy trained as a nurse and served as a Public Health Nurse. She nursed at Church camps and on several First Nations Reservations in Manitoba. Later, she was the Matron of a nursing home in Burnaby, BC.
She loved travelling . . . . going across Canada several times in an RV and also to Mexico twice, staying there three months each time. While living in Sechelt and travelling to Vancouver Island a number of times, Dorothy decided the Parksville-Qualicum area was where she wanted to retire. Coming to Parksville, she joined St Columba Presbyterian Church, sang in the choir, and was active in the Joy Mahood Missionary Society.
Dorothy is survived by her close friend, Reverend Iris Ford of Parksville; sister-in-law, Raymonde Myers of Quebec; niece, Grace Myers Kardash (Ken); great niece and nephew Katrina and Jonathan of Quebec; nephew, Stephen Myers (Dung); step-son, Mike and Susie Thompson and family of Washington State. Dorothy was predeceased by her parents and her brother, Hugh.
Mike remembers Dorothy’s influence; “In so many wonderful ways you improved the world around you. Thank you for living a Godly life and serving Jesus faithfully. Dorothy, you have been a blessing and inspiration to Susie and I, our children, and our grandchildren.”
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 14th at St Columba Presbyterian Church, 921 Wembley Road in Parksville with The Reverend Robert Kerr officiating.
