Dorothy passed away peacefully at Bethany Collegeside at the age of 84. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 22 at 1:30 pm at Deerpark Alliance Church (2960 39th St.) She was born and schooled in Leross, SK. She married William Eby in 1947 and they lived 12 years at Guernsey, SK before moving to Red Deer in 1959 to be closer to her parents and the city life she always aspired to. Dorothy was always involved in athletics, church, helping neighbours, family and friends. In 2008 she moved to Redwood Retirement Residence where she met and then married Stuart Brown in 2010. She is survived by her much loved husband Stuart Brown, her children: Diane (Arnold) Paulsen, Ron, Heather (Clayton) Ostapowich and her daughter-in-law Nancy Eby; her grandchildren: Glen Paulsen (Annie Bron), Lynn (Justin) Hubert, Julie (Colin) Viens, Michelle (Brad) Prather, Chad (Kristi) Eby, Morgan Ostapowich and Raegan Ostapowich; great-grandchildren: Selah, Anya and Dylan Paulsen (and their mother Angel), Sarah, Janai, Elijah and Amayah Hubert, Mckenna, Grayson, Kya and Suraya Prather, Karsten and Mattea Eby; her sisters and brothers: Mary Patterson, Elizabeth Walker, Gordon (Elsie) Murray, Agnes Snider, Phyllis (Dan) Lawrence, Doug (Janet) Murray, sisters-in-law Yolanda Murray, Margaret Murray, Helen Murray, and Barb Murray; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and step-relatives.

The family would like to thank the staff of Redwood Retirement Residence, Inglewood and Aspen Ridge by Symphony for the help and care given to Dorothy that enabled her to stay as long as possible with her husband.
