Death Notice (10/07/2000)
WARD - Dorothy May (nee Gillies) passed away peacefully September 29, 2000 at Hawthorne Care Centre, Port Coquitlam, B.C. in her 93rd year. The youngest of nine children of Emily Jane (nee Salter) of Devon, England and Andrew Gillies of Perth, Scotland, she was born December 19, 1907 in Vancouver. Eight siblings were born in Manitoba before the Gillies clan moved west. Family tragedies marked her life. Two brother died young. When she was two, her father left home. She adored her mother. Despite hardships, Dorothy grew up in a strict but loving home. Like her siblings, she quit school to support her mother and worked as a window-dresser (displays), salesgirl and supervisor (Purdy's and Bain's chocolates, Scott's Cafe). Dorothy lived in early Vancouver and Burnaby when is was common to see indigenous people, horse-drawn vehicles, tall forests and wild bears and she was a major contributor to our family history. At age 18, she drove a car when female drivers were uncommon and cars were unpredictable! In 1930, she married "Dad" (Elmer) and became a full-time homemaker and devoted mother. Her first son lived only weeks. She had two more children. She lived in Vancouver, Burnaby and Coquitlam, always within view of her beloved mountains. She was a decent, honest, caring and loving woman. Strong in mind and body, she faced life with determination and common sense. She excelled in homemaking, baking (desserts a speciality), sewing, gardening and designing hats. She did not like reading or writing but relied on radio, TV or family grapevine. She was gifted with Scottish "second sight". She enjoyed singing, dancing, playing piano, shopping, pets, T.V. hockey, visiting, laughing and drinking gallons of tea. She shared life relationships with siblings and friends. She was proud of Vancouver, her parents' birthplaces and the Royal Family (UK) although she never travelled overseas. She enjoyed long car trips but refused to fly because of an unsettling experience as a passenger in an open-cockpit stunt plane (1920's). Predeceased by infant son Robert Elmer (1930); husband Elmer Cecil Ward (1989), himself one of nine children; both parents; four sisters, Nell, Amy, Lottie and Tenie; four brothers, Hugh (WW II), Sid, Bill and Gordon (childhood) Gillies; nieces and nephews; friends and lifelong childhood friend Loretta. Dearly missed by son Don (Louise) Ward; grandchildren Sandy (Mark) Teel and Steve (Denise) Ward; dear great-grandson Darren Teel; and daughter Lynne (Bob) Leggett. Also missed by caring nieces and nephews Betsy (Rudy) of California, Bill (Ruth), Lillian, Dode, Tedda, Hazel of California, Marion, Gord (Marg) and families. We thank Loretta's daughters (spouses), friend Lindsay, Hawthorne Care Centre, former physician Dr. S. Ross and final physician Dr. K. Jones. Good genes, a positive attitude, non-smoking and non-drinking accounted for robust health into her 80's. Her health declined (1993) and she entered Hawthorne ECU (1995). We are thankful for her long life. Cremation at Dorothy's request without memorial or reception. In lieu of flowers, donations to any children's charity would be appreciated because "Mom" adored children. A heart of gold stopped beating. Lovingly remembered.
