December 28, 1938 - July 2, 2023
In loving memory ~
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden death of Dorothy Ada Ann Lamberton, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and sister-in-law. Dorothy passed away on July 2, 2023.
She was born on December 28, 1938, to Ada and Gordon Robertson in Hamilton, Ontario. In 1960 after teaching in Hamilton, she ventured west, where she taught elementary school on the Armed Forces base in Comox, British Columbia.
In 1962 she met and soon married Neill Lamberton. This began a new adventure as they moved to other bases across Canada and Europe. During this time, she raised two sons, had many career changes, and willingly volunteered her time in her communities. At the end of their military life, they returned to Vancouver Island.
Dorothy had a passion for gardening. Her flowers and yard were a joy to see! She had many close friends in Courtenay, across Canada and as far away as Ethiopia. Her kindness, caring nature, generosity, and smile was felt by all who knew her.
Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, her son Scott, her sister Bernice and her two brothers Bill and Jack.
Dorothy will be sorely missed by Neill, her husband of 61 years, her son Neill Robert of Moose Jaw, daughter-in-law Ilona of Cobourg, Ontario, sisters Joyce and Kay of Hamilton, Ontario and many nieces and nephews.
She is also survived by her 'outlaws' as she lovingly referred to Neill's siblings and their families. They loved her dearly and will miss her.
Our kind and gracious lady is gone from our midst but never from our hearts!
