Dorrine Carroline Longmuir (Mulholland)
We regretfully announce the passing of Dorrine. Her struggle with her lengthy illness came to an end on Monday, November 17, 2003. In silence she suffered much but now she rests, as the Lord, her shepherd ,guided her to everlasting peace with friends and family at her side.
The family would like to thank Dr. Brian Bowerman and staff on the 2nd floor of Lake of the Woods District Hospital for all their care and compassion with our loved one. A special "Thank you" to Sandy and Ralph Carlson for looking after Dorrine's needs so well. She thought the world of them and adopted them as her own saviours in much needed situations.
Also a tribute to those that were so close to Dorrine, they know who they are, and a special mention to her long and dearest friend Chris Caithcart who has a heart that is over flowing with love and affection for everyone.
Dorrine was born in Redditt to Maude and Bill Mulholland on July 10, 1940. Being the youngest of nine children, she learned quickly to hold her own, whether it be hunting, picking berries or just playing in "Fogo's" field which for a while became her nickname to many she knew for her demeanor and stamina.
Spending most of her chosen life close to home, she was quietly known for her culinary skills with many establishments within and around the community. A few being - the Redditt lunch counter, Annette Romanek, Gennie Sinclair, C.J. School and Beckets Motel until her health problems began with a vengeance.
Dorrine had a heart of gold and cherished many memories. She was predeceased by her Mother and Father, three brothers...Everette, Robert and Garnett. Also three sisters...Gladys, Minnie and Doris.
Dorrine is survived by one brother Bill (Anne) of B.C. and one sister Laura (Roy) Craven of Kenora, and several first and second nieces and nephews.
Dorrine's desire was very simple as was her life style, that being
immediate cremation, no flowers, frills or Service. Any one wishing to donate please do so to the "Lake of the Woods District Hospital Cat Scan Fund"...in her honour. May we always remember that her "Individuality" drove her desire to be different, and we should respect her wishes.
"I do it good for you gal" ... also your request!
May peace shine on you always.....
Love Sharron, Wayne and family members.
This poem requested by Dorrine.....
To Those I Love And Those Who Loved Me
When I am gone, release me let me go...
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears;
Be happy that we had so many years,
I gave to you my love
You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness,
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I travelled on alone.
So grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on;
So if you need, call and I will come,
Though you can't see me or touch me,
I'll be near
And if you listen with your hearts,
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone
I'll greet you with a smile and say
