Dorothy Evelyn Lindsey

March 31, 1931 - September 3, 2014


With sadness, the family of Dorothy Evelyn Lindsey, announce her passing on Sept. 3, 2014. Dorothy passed away from complications of a stroke with her family at her side. Dorothy was born in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan on March 31, 1931 to Helen and Sam Reierson. After growing up on her family farm, she continued her teaching education in Nelson, BC at which time she met her husband, John Lindsey. She went on to teach in a one-room school house, grades 1-12 in Saskatchewan. She later married after John convinced her not to spend another cold Saskatchewan winter alone on January 2. 1954 Dorothy was very much a family person. Nothing delighted her more than having her family around her. She was known for kindness and optimistic outlook on life and her encouraging words to all. She was an excellent cook, seamstress and gardener in her earlier years. She worked part-time at the bank and as well at the post office. She was committed in her Christian faith and always felt a loyalty to St. Saviour’s Church. She served at many of their annual teas. She is survived by her husband, John at Mountain

Lake Senior’s complex, son, Mike Lindsey (Shelley) of Nelson, BC, daughter Susan (David) Kermociev of Vernon, BC, son Dan (Kelly) Lindsey of Whitehorse, Yukon and daughter, Terri Nelson of Fruitvale, BC, sister, Sandra (Denis) Helbecque of South Slocan, BC and their children, Shawn, Rochelle, and Noel who were like grandchildren to her. She had five birth grandchildren, Amber (Luke) Maygard of Armstrong, BC, Caleb (Amy) Kermociev of Vernon, BC, Sam and Claire Lindsey of Whitehorse, Yukon and Madison of Fruitvale, BC. She had numerous other relatives and friends that she loved and kept in faithful contact with. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the doctors and nurses at KLH who cared for Dorothy during her passing and the long-time care of Dr. Richard Milde.
