September 4th, 1943 – January 11th, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Dorothy Marie Robins lost her battle with cancer January 11th, 2012. Her loving husband, children, grand children and brother were by her side as she left us to join those who went before her.
Married in 1962 to Ulric (aka Kirk) in Fort Macleod Germany, together they experienced a life away from home full of new challenges. Once returning back to Canada, they started their family. Dorothy leaves behind her husband of 50 years Ulric (Kirk) Robins, her 3 children, Martin and wife Kim of Qualicum, BC, Carey of Port McNeil, BC, Tanya of St. Albert, AB, grand children Brandon, Olivia and Téa and great granddaughter Elianna as well as her brother Larry and his wife Gwen and many nieces and nephews.
Born Dorothy Marie Duthie September 4th, 1943 in High River, AB, to mother Mildred and father Joseph. She was second youngest of 5 children. Predeceased by her parents, brothers Wayne, Donald and sister Carol, Dorothy was no stranger to the great sadness and emptiness we are all experiencing with her loss.
Her passion for laughing will be missed beyond words, so lets get together and remember her, share stories and our respects. Her celebration of life is a come as you are affair. Casual dress and conversation is exactly how she would have wanted it.
