May 12, 1919 – April 14, 2014
Dorothy Mildred Winifred Baldwin (nee Francis) passed away peacefully at home on Mon., April 14, 2014, in her 95th year.
She was the daughter of the late John Francis and Margaret Holmes. She was the beloved wife of the late Gordon Baldwin, and the much-loved mother of Lorraine (Gordon) Reoch of Vernon, Dwayne (Sonja) of Almonte, Gerald (Valerie) of Calgary, and the late Lorna Hill. She was the cherished grandmother of eight, and loving great-grandmother of many. She was predeceased by nine brothers and sisters. Dorothy will be sadly missed by her extended family, neighbours, and her dear caregivers, Helen and Ann.
Dorothy’s garden — her “baby” — will miss her tender care, and we will all miss the bounty, which was so proudly shared. Family and friends will be hugged for years to come through the afghans, sweaters, scarves, socks, and mitts she knitted and crocheted for us. There is love in every stitch.
Friends called at the Daniels Funeral Chapels Inc. in Winchester on Wed., April 16. The funeral service was held in the chapel of the funeral home on Thurs., April 17 at 10 am followed by interment at Maple Ridge Cemetery in Chesterville.
For those who wish to remember Dorothy, online donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation (www.heartandstroke.on.ca) or Winchester District Memorial Hospital (www.wdmh.on.ca).
