Many thanks to the staff and administration of Alexander Place Waterdown for their exceptional patience, care, affection, and kindnesses. Mention must be made of the extraordinary help and advocacy of Monica Fisher RN, and Theresa deSouza for her innumerable kindnesses.

Dove was a long-time member of the Elora Curling Club and the United Church of Canada.

Donations to the Breast Cancer Society, the Alzheimer Society of Hamilton, or the Highland Hills Faith Community Church in Dundas would be welcome. If one is so inclined, one might raise a glass of Valpolicella in her honour.

Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Dove’s life will be held at the Meaford Curling Club on November 14, 2023, at 12 p.m.

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help.” Psalm 121
