It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and great friend, Dorothy Cargill, on Monday, June 19, 2017 at La Verendrye Hospital in Fort Frances, Ont.
Dorothy was born on April 16, 1937 at Couchiching to Anselm and Veronica Perrault, where she was raised.
On Sept 25, 1965, she was married to John Cargill and moved to Fort Frances, where she resided until her passing.
One of Dorothy’s last requests was to return “home” to Couchiching, where she will rest beside her siblings.
Dorothy was deeply loved by her family, and so very proud of each and every one of them. She looked forward to every family gathering, especially the barbecues—everybody loved her special baked beans.
She enjoyed family card games and playing Scrabble with her best chum, Diane Hodge.
Dorothy loved all animals, especially her beloved “fur baby,” Tia. She also had a vast collection of bird ornaments.
Dorothy leaves behind her children, Brian (Kathy) Perrault, Gwen Beadle, Donovan Perrault, Barry Perrault, and Lana Jackway (Bentley); grandchildren, Miranda (Josh), Trevor, and Andrea; great-grandsons, Owen and Elliot; and her brother, Patrick (Lillian).
She also will be greatly missed by her numerous nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly.
Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, John; parents, Anslem and Veronica; son-in-law, Ron Beadle; siblings, William (“Mutto”), Mary, Wilbert, Priscilla (“Pete”) Louie, Gilbert, Jane, and Larry.
A prayer service will be held Thursday, June 22, 2017 at 7 p.m. at Green’s Funeral Home in Fort Frances.
Funeral services will be held Friday, June 23, 2017 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church in Couchiching First Nation, with Fr. Alan Albao officiating.
The pallbearers will be Jim McMahon, Cary Howells, Karl Howells, Donny Howells, Wayne Bruyere, and Josh Mason.
The honorary pallbearers will be Diane Hodge and Elsie Smith.
If friends so desire, in memoriam donations may be made to the Fort Frances Community Chest or the “Friends of Animals.”
