The Amherst News - - OBITUARIES/EVENTS -

The fu­neral ser­vice for the late Dorothy “Dot” Gal­lant, age 98, for­merly of Amherst, was held from Holy Fam­ily Par­ish Ro­man Catholic Church on Nov.

15, 2018 at 11 a.m. with Fa­ther Phil Thi­bodeau of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Pre­ced­ing the Mass, Dar­lene De­vi­son (niece) gave a heart­felt eu­logy. Dorothy’s brother, John (Ju­nior) Burke, had his re­mem­brance re­marks read by his daugh­ter, Diane. Very close friend Yolande Gothreau shared a spe­cial mem­ory and later of­fered a spir­i­tual read­ing dur­ing the mass. The par­ish choir cre­ated warmth for the ser­vice by singing her favourite hymns: ‘Here I Am, Lord’ & ‘Be Not Afraid.’

Pall­bear­ers were fam­ily mem­bers: Ross Thi­bodeau, Stephen and Kristin Thi­bodeau, David and Jes­sica Thi­bodeau and Derek De­vi­son. Mem­bers of the CWL pro­vided the reception for fam­ily and friends at the con­clu­sion of the ser­vice.

The burial took place at St. Charles Nativity Ceme­tery.

Dorothy’s fam­ily ex­tend their sin­cere thanks for the mass cards, sym­pa­thy cards, on­line con­do­lences and char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions.

The ex­cel­lent care and friend­ship dur­ing Dorothy’s lengthy stay at High-Crest Nurs­ing Home, Springhill, was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

Thank you to Fur­long ~ Jones Fu­neral Home for fa­cil­i­tat­ing the ar­range­ments in their most help­ful, car­ing and pro­fes­sional man­ner.
