Dorothy "Dot" Jewkes
On Tuesday, October 22, 2019, Dorothy "Dot" Muriel Jewkes, age 89, of Springhill, NS, passed away at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre with family by her side.
Born in Springhill, NS, she was a daughter of the late James and Eva (Hachey) Anderson.
A woman of deep faith, Dot was very active in her church, St. John The Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Springhill, being a member of the CWL and the Ladies Auxiliary. She worked for Canada Post at the Springhill Post Office for over 35 years. She was a member of the Springhill Senior Citizens Club. She loved spending time at the beach as often as she could, watching hours of curling on television, and always enjoyed a good game of 45's or cribbage.
She will be dearly missed by sons, Gary (Lynda), Tillsonburg, ON, Jim (Georgie), Sussex, NB; adopted daughter Chrissy (John) Buckley, St. Albert, AB; grandchildren, Shannon (Shane) Earle, Apohaqui, NB, Jason (Mindy), Bracebridge, ON and Jeff (Amelia), Ingersoll, ON; great grandchildren, MacKenzie, Devon, Haleigh, Urijah, Cloey and Calliope; close friend and neighbour Shirley Veniott; as well as nieces and nephews.
Go gently Mom, God has now called you home, we will miss you. You have walked this earth for a long while, now walk your heavenly walk, until we meet again.
She was predeceased by her sister Marjorie "Midgie" Legere.
