Dorothy Margaret (Bernard)

December 1, 1911 – November 21, 2013

Very sadly, Dorothy passed away just 10 days before her 102nd birthday. She was predeceased by her husband of 73 years, Joe, and granddaughter, Roxanne Denslow.

Dorothy is survived by her daughter, Marjorie Denslow (Clarence); son, Lon Gaspardone (Sandra); 2 grandsons, Greg Denslow (Chris), & Darryl Gaspardone (Twila); 1 granddaughter, Michelle Woodruff; 5 great-grandsons: Chris Woodruff (Amber Gael), Kyle Woodruff (Dannielle), Chase Denslow (Tina), Jordan Denslow (Simone) and Spence Gaspardone.

Dorothy led a very active life and was extremely proud of her 50 year involvement in Nanaimo Altrusa Club. Dorothy was also a driving force behind the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive.

Special thanks from the family to the wonderful staff at Malaspina Gardens and to Dr. Forrester.
