Dorothy Ann Sharman
January 1, 1925 – January 17, 2012
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother, Dorothy Sharman, at Nanaimo Regional Hospital. Dorothy leaves behind her children: Doran (Annmarie), Grant and Dayle (Norm); grandchildren: Noel (Julie), Kelsey, Caitlin, Blaine; great-grandchildren, Liberty and Lincoln. Dorothy will also be missed by her brother, Ray. Dorothy is predeceased by her husband, Bob; sister Beryal; brothers, Mervyn and Bill; and granddaughter Rachel.
Dorothy was born on the family farm in Webb, Saskatchewan before moving to Moose Jaw with her mother, sister and brother, Ray. She eventually came west to Vancouver where she worked, met and married Bob and started a family in West Vancouver. Next stop was Chilliwack where she enjoyed volunteering with the Chilliwack Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, working for Royal Welcome meeting new families moving to Chilliwack, and eventually getting her insurance agent’s licence. Bob and Dorothy moved to Nanaimo in 1975. One of Dorothy’s great passions was travelling which took her to many wonderful places around the world.
No service by request. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon or the BC Cancer Foundation, in Dorothy’s name.
