Dorothy’s family is saddened to announce her passing in Red Deer, Alberta at the age of 96 years. Dorothy May ‘Dot’ Probert (nee Hellings) was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and lived there before moving to Calgary, Alberta in 1973. She and her husband, Rex lived there for forty years, enjoying many years of retirement. Dot was a very loving and devoted daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. A very stylish lady, she spent many hours sewing beautiful outfits for her young daughters, and had a natural talent for interior decoration. She also enjoyed a good game of bridge. Dorothy will be fondly remembered by her daughters, Heather (Terry) Hodgins of West Vancouver, and Colleen (David) Hardy of Red Deer; her grandchildren, Sara (Robin), Kelly (Aaron), Lindsay (Jason), Alison, and Evan (Jillian); and her great grandchildren, Dylan, Ronan, Sylvie, Ilse, Iona, Vaughn, Natalie, Ian and Sophie. Dot was predeceased by her husband, Rex in 2014. The family is grateful for the care and attention she received over the five years she lived at Revera in Red Deer. The family would also like to express their gratitude for the loyal companionship of Jane Crichton, and for the kind and gentle care she received at Aspen Cottage during her final months. A Private Family Service will be held in Moose Jaw, at a later date; where she and Rex will be interred together. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations in Dot’s honor may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories at www.cancer.ca and would be much appreciated.
