October 19, 1922 – May 7, 2023

With her family by her side, Dorothy Ethelwin Cox passed away on Sunday, May 7, 2023 in Carberry Hospital following a stroke on April 28th.

Dorothy was born on October 19, 1922 in the family home in the R.M. of Grey, 9 miles north-west of Elm Creek, Manitoba, the eldest child of James Frost and Ethel (nee Goddard) Foote.

She had many interests in her 100 years - teaching, music, gardening, traveling and genealogy. As a young lady she loved to play ball, skate, ride her bike and above all walk. Growing up, before the convenience of cars, she did a lot of walking and continued to do so up until her passing.

Last October she had such a great time at her 100th birthday party, celebrating with family, friends and former students of both Justice School and Elton Collegiate.

She is survived by her four children: Larry (Linda), Herb (Linda), Rosalie (Wally) and Heather (Brad), six grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She was pre-deceased by her husband, Laval and two grandsons, Andrew and Stefan.

Mom truly found a second home in Carberry after living her whole married life in Justice. The family wishes to give heartfelt thanks to the Carberry Home Care workers and nurses and staff of Carberry Hospital for their outstanding care of Dorothy.

The funeral service will be held at Carberry United Church on Monday, May 15, 2023 at 2:00 p.m.

Donations in memory of Dorothy may be made to the Carberry United Church, Box 239, Carberry, MB R0K 0H0, CNIB, 1080 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3G 3M3, or the charity of your choice.
