DARLING, Dorothy, late of Gabriola Island, BC, born February 13, 1908 died peacefully at Nanaimo Hospital on March 20, 2003 at the age of 95. Dorothy never married and had no children of her own. She was, however the eldest of a family of 7 children and played a major role in the raising of her 4 sisters, Beatrice (Buds) Owen, Grace (Dede) Moss, Janet Withers, and Sheila Nelson, and her two brothers Nelson and William. Dorothy lived most of her life in Vancouver where she spent many years of joyous participation in the Little Theatre Company, working with her friends Dorothy Peck and Jessie Richardson. She was introduced to Gabriola Island as a summer home in 1914 and spent most of her summers there throughout her life. She retired to Gabriola in 1971 building a small home where she lived independently until just a few days before her death. Dorothy will be missed by her two surviving sisters, Janet Withers and Sheila Nelson. She will also be missed by the many nieces and nephews whose lives she touched. Among these were the children of her sister Beatrice, Michael (and his children Jacquie and Bridget), Barbara and Gerald Owen (and his children Tom and Alexis), the children of her sister Sheila Nelson (Douglas, Robert and Deborah Phippen) the daughter of her brother Nelson (Patti Meekison), and the step children of her sister Grace (Clare Peterson, David Moss and Marcia Hafner, and Anne Moss). In her later years Dorothy came to rely for her independence on the loving care of her niece Barbara Owen, her niece-in-law Terry Owen and the constant help of the Gabriola Homemakers Society. In her many roles as sister, aunt, great aunt, in-law and friend, she blotted many tears, changed many diapers and served as listening post to many generations of children. She was the eldest of the broader Darling clan which has adopted Gabriola Island as its home. This is the passing of a generation. Her warm, steady and generous spirit will be missed by her loving family and friends.
