She will always be remembered for sending cards for every special occasion to each and every one of them, which will truly be missed by all.
Having moved to Jackman in the late 1960’s, Dot quickly became an active member of the community. If there was an organization, she was a part of it! Her love for cooking and crocheting followed her throughout her life. Almost every job she had involved cooking! Her last place of employment was the Four Season’s Restaurant. This was her second home. Dot also will be remembered as one of the founding members and Queen Mother of the Moose River Valley Ruffled Feather Red Hatters! She was instrumental in resurrecting the annual 4th of July parade. Another endeavor of hers was the Farm Share Program. Not only did she help with distribution of the produce, she was able to see everyone and keep in touch with them. Dot made it a habit of keeping informed and acknowledging people’s accomplishments and other occasions by sending cards to people all over the United States!
