The family of Dolores Dunkley of Penticton, BC is saddened to announce her passing on March 7, 2022 at the age of 82 years.
Dolores is survived by her children, Cindy, Garry (Kim), Richard, Gordon (Edna), Peggy (Stan), Robert (Jena) and Jennifer (Blair); grandchildren, Erin, Christopher (Trae), Jeffrey, Jonathon, Kyla, Kaitlyn (Mike), Emily, Bradley (Jessie), Jesse, Tia and Adam; great-grandchildren, Chanelle, Lukus, Jasmine, Adalyn, Emily, Lane, Auden, Mason and Kaylen; great-great-grandson, Noah; sisters, Bernice Dunkley and Alice Dunkley; brothers, Donald McKinley and Stacey McKinley. She is predeceased by her grandson, Donovan Johnson (Garry); her sister, Georgina Henke and her parents.
Dolores spent most of her days out in her community, riding the bus, and walking to do her errands. Dolores spent that time to connect with those around her. She offered general greetings of “Hi” or “How are you?” but more often than not she would stop and listen to someone’s story. She would offer them words of encouragement, a KIND hand on their shoulder, an understanding smile and at times a coffee or a few dollars to help them through their day.
Dolores was passionate about the members of her community that had day to day struggles; mental health issues/illness, addictions, and homelessness. She offered them kindness, support, and a listening ear with compassion and without judgement.
Thank you to the nursing staff at Penticton Regional Hospital for showing kindness to our Mom and to our family.
A Celebration of Dolores’ Life was held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 397 Martin Street, Penticton on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please support the Penticton and District Society for Community Living at 180 Industrial Avenue, Penticton, BC, V2A 6X9.
