July 2, 1928 – March 30, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy (Dye) Walstrom on March 30, 2021. She passed away with her husband (of 71 years), and her son by her side. Dorothy was born, raised and lived her entire life in the Vanderhoof area.
Dorothy and Oscar raised their children on a farm on the Sob Lake Rd in the Mapes area. Once the children were gone they raised cattle which Dorothy loved. In the later years they lived on 4 acres just outside of Vanderhoof, but she always missed the farm and her cows.
Dorothy will be sadly missed by her husband Leland (Oscar) Walstrom; her son Tim (Ann) Walstrom, her daughter Marilyn (Bill) Johnson, 5 grandchildren: Shane Walstrom, Tracy (Chad) Briggs, Mark Johnson (Rachel Henri), Alexie Johnson (Augustine Shim), Adam Johnson, and many nieces and nephews.
Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, 2 brothers and 1 sister.
Sincere thanks are extended to Dr. Coetzee and the wonderful staff at the Stuart Nechako Manor in Vanderhoof
A memorial service will be held at a later date when Covid-19 restrictions are eased.
