Passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Thanksgiving Day with her son and daughter by her her side.  Dot turned 90 this year and  leaves behind to cherish her memory two children, Sheron Costas (Bronier) and Ian Langford; five grandchildren, Brian (Rachael) Andrew (Theresa) and Phillip Costas, Stephanie Rothwell (Kevin) and Christean Langford; six great-grandchildren, Ben, Annabelle and Rosalie Rothwell, Sadie, Neela and Jaida Langford.  Dot was above all an animal lover. She trained her boxer Jake to work as a therapy dog and spent many hours caring for others. She had two cats that were with her up until last week when one was too ill to carry on. Maybe Gina did not want to be without her caregiver and knew the time was close. Dot was born in England in 1927 and lived there during World War II.  Always having an adventurous spirit, she convinced her late husband Derek to immigrate with the family to Canada in 1963. She traveled extensively and visited many of the places on her bucket list like China, Africa and Russia. Through the photographs she took, Dot created lasting memories.   She spent many winters in Florida to escape the cold Canadian winters. Dot lived the last 15 years of her life in Elliot Lake where she made many friends. Her family wishes to thank Dr. Stirling for the care he has given her and the nurses on the third floor for their compassion. She will be sorely missed. A service will be held at Saint Peters Anglican Church in Elliot Lake this Saturday October 14th at 11am. Please consider making a donation to SAD, Dot’s favorite charity in lieu of flowers. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Elliot Lake Funeral Chapel & Cremation Centre (36 Ontario Ave).
