She met the love of her life, Elmer, whom she married on December 2, 1950. They made their home in Winnipeg and together raised their family of six children. Dorothy‘s greatest joy was to spend time with her family, whom she loved immensely and never missed a birthday or special occasion. She would spend endless hours knitting and making gifts for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her love and generosity extended beyond her immediate family and she was always there to lend a helping hand to her relatives, friends and even strangers. We will always remember her for her contagious laugh, sense of humour, and generous spirit of giving.
Dorothy was moved by the hardship suffered by native people and her compassion and dedication led her to a lifelong career in aboriginal law and community service.

W. Gordon Mawhinney
August 21, 1942 - September 29, 2007
Unexpectedly, on Saturday, September 29, 2007, Gord passed away at the age of 65. He was predeceased by his father, mother, beloved wife, Hope and faithful canine companion, Chomper. Gord will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by his son Rob and daughter Meghan, his sister May (Ed), his niece and nephew, Dana and Craig (Sue-Anne), and many, many loving cousins.
In 1959, Gord graduated from Daniel McIntyre Collegiate. After graduation, he worked for CNR, the Stock Yards and Versatile Equipment, but his most rewarding job was as “Mr. Mom” to Rob and Meghan. Family was the most important part of Gord’s life, and he was very proud of his children and their accomplishments.
In 1994, he and Hope set off on a new entrepreneurial endeavour and Face-Off Cards was born. As their popularity grew, the need for bigger and better lodgings moved them to their current location on Ness Avenue.
Gord could often be seen at the Assiniboia Downs, the St. James YMCA (aquasizing), and enjoying conversation with the staff at Perkins over coffee and a low-fat muffin where his glowing stories about his kids could be heard for miles. He was an avid golfer and recently fell in love with the courses in Lake Havasu, AZ, where he happily kept warm during our Winnipeg winters.
Gord lived every day with joy, kindness, a lucky horse pick and a worn out library card. His quiet love and warm smile will be greatly missed by his family, friends and customers.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, October 5, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. at the Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
A very special thanks goes to all friends and family who have provided support, love and plenty of food during this very difficult time.
