Obituary of Dorothy I. Macaulay
September 16, 1928 - February 25, 2021
The family of Dorothy Macaulay sadly share that she passed away on February 25, 2021 at Lambton Meadowview Villa in Petrolia. Dorothy was a loving mother to Neil, Scott (Maurene), Joanne (Ken), and Donna as well as a doting grandmother to Brooke (Nick), Kate (Owen), and Evan. She was predeceased by her devoted husband, Starr, in 1997.
Dorothy was born into a large and happy household in Zone Township and was a big sister to Norine, Mary, Bob, Ross, and Edith. When she studied nursing, it was evident that this was her passion. Dorothy was an RN on the night shift at Four Counties General Hospital from its opening in 1967 to her retirement in 1992. Following retirement, Dorothy continued as a volunteer at Four Counties for many years with a focus on the Hospital Auxiliary. Dorothy was a faithful and committed member of Aughrim Anglican Church and more than willing to help her cherished local community in any way possible.
The family will miss spending time with her at the farm, the home she loved so much. Sometimes, we could even convince her to sit down for a few minutes! We will miss Mum's care and attention and definitely her fudge.
Special thanks to all the caring and compassionate staff at Lambton Meadowview Villa.
