Dorothy Ines Armstrong

February 11, 1917 – December 25, 2021
Dorothy quietly passed away early on Christmas morning at the age of 104 years.
She was the sole surviving member of a family of 14 children, who was born and raised in Saskatchewan. Predeceased by her husband, Thoral, in 1970, sons-in-law Stan Ellis and Bert Stephens. Our Mother is survived by many family members. Four children; Shirley Ellis, Wayne (Marni), Karen Stephens and Judy Dunn (Rick). With 5 grandchildren came 10 great-grandchildren, and 3 great great-grandchildren.
In the early 1940’s, Dorothy and Thoral travelled to Surrey, making their home in Clayton for 30 years. Here they flourished and were active members in their community with the Clayton Community Assoc.
After Dad’s passing, Mom created another life for herself by moving to North Burnaby and making many new friends there and at Seton Villa.
She was known and loved by many and will be forever missed by all.
Due to Covid, this will be a private family funeral.Obituary
