August 22, 1933 - April 12, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy at the age of 87.
She is survived by her daughter Marlene (Jim) Martin, son Alex (Sandy) and ex-daughter-in-law Tammi Smith; grandchildren, Gregory Kargus, Brittany Kargus and Cori and Tom Norquay; great-grandchildren, Alexa-Lilly and Jaymi; along with many nieces and nephews.
Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, Bob and Gertrude Cosens; husband Tom; sisters, Mayme (Nick) Lesko and Eleanor (Courtney) Hamaberg.
Dorothy loved teaching. She started teaching at Hartley School from 1953 to 1956, then taught at Petersfield School from 1957 to 1966 when she retired. During that time, she married Tom Simpson on August 4, 1956 and they lived in Petersfield; they moved to the family farm in the mid 60s where she gave birth to their son Sandy (Alexander).
Her hobbies included baking (especially around Christmas), gardening and going for drives with Tom. She helped on the farm and later in life enjoyed tutoring and watching Tom and Sandy play hockey and curling. Her greatest joys in life were her son, grandkids and husband. Friends and family meant the world to her and she will be deeply missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.
Cremation has taken place, there will be a small family service at a later date. She will be laid to rest with Tom at Wakefield Church Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Forever loved,
Forever missed and
Forever in our hearts

Condolences may be left on her tribute wall
