The Telegram (St. John’s) - - OBITUARIES / WORLD -

Peace­fully and serenely on Jan­uary 12, 2019 with fam­ily mem­bers at her side at Carbonear Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. De­voted daugh­ter of Os­car and El­iz­abeth Moores and lov­ing sis­ter to Carl (Shirley). She was pre­de­ceased by her sib­lings Jack (Mil­dred), Alec (Maysie), Ruth (Eric) and Bert (Glo­ria). She was a dear Aunt Dot to Judy (dec.), John, Bar­bara, Dal­las, Dou­glas, David, Dar­roch, Alexis (dec.), Gra­ham, Kim, El­iz­abeth, Kathy, Carl, Ian and Keith. She was born in Black­head, Con­cep­tion Bay, and was a Schol­ar­ship stu­dent in her school work and stud­ies. From her early days, she was a very in­de­pen­dent woman, she was tra­di­tional in non-tra­di­tional ways. It wasn’t easy for a woman of her time to have a ca­reer, how­ever, she did so and worked for over forty years with the Bank of Mon­treal in var­i­ous ca­pac­i­ties. She was a per­son who loved to read, she prob­a­bly had ev­ery is­sue of “Life Mag­a­zine”. Her in­ter­ests ranged from mu­sic, to fash­ion and to pol­i­tics. She loved to en­gage her fam­ily and friends with her views on a wide range of sub­ject mat­ters. She was not ret­i­cent in of­fer­ing her opin­ion and surely was not a “flower born to blush un­seen”. Her fam­ily was also very im­por­tant to her. She was de­voted to her par­ents, she lived with and cared for them through­out their lives. Her brothers, sis­ter, nieces and neph­ews, and their fam­i­lies were al­ways her con­cern, and she con­tin­ued to keep abreast of and be in­ter­ested in what those in her fam­ily were do­ing in their lives. Aunt Dot was a kind, gen­er­ous, lov­ing and car­ing per­son who made her mark in her day and gen­er­a­tion. She truly en­joyed her life and will be fondly re­mem­bered by her fam­ily and friends. The fam­ily would like to ex­press its sin­cere grat­i­tude to the man­age­ment and staff of Lux­ury Es­tates, Carbonear, for their care and at­ten­tion to Dorothy for the past ten years. She is rest­ing at Noels Fu­neral Home, Carbonear, with vis­i­ta­tion from 2-4 and 7-9 on Mon­day, Jan­uary 14, 2019. Fu­neral Ser­vices on Tues­day, Jan­uary 15, 2019 at 2 p.m. from Noels Chapel and Fu­neral Home, Carbonear. Dorothy will be laid to rest in the fam­ily plot at Black­head Ceme­tery with her par­ents. The cir­cle will be com­plete. Do­na­tions in her mem­ory may be made to VOWR Ra­dio, P.O. Box 26006, St. John’s, A1E 0A5. Please visit www.noels­fu­ner­al­home.com to send a mes­sage of con­do­lence to her fam­ily.
