We Remember

KOSTASCHUK, Dorothy “Mary”

Mom passed away December 11th, 2015 with her family by her side. Predeceased by our dad, Myron, in 2004. Survived by her daughters Kim (Mike), Denita (Dave) and Nycole (Brad), her grandchildren Paige (Joel), Kaitlan, Brady, Curtis, Dylan and Madison, and her great grandson Carter.

Mom was born in Killarney, Manitoba to John and Dorothy Lamb and had 6 brothers, 1 sister, many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws. She and Dad were married in 1964. They moved to Kelowna in 1972 and started Myron’s Door Service, which they owned and operated for 39 years.

Mom lived each day to the fullest, never complained, and loved to entertain and travel. Her family meant the world to her and she meant the world to her family. She had many, many friends. She was a Kelowna Rocket’s fan and held a season’s ticket since 1991.

Thank you to Dr. Yarrow, Dr. Berget, the Interior Health Community services, and the staff at Central Okanagan Hospice House for taking such nice care of our Mom.

    Kim and Family
    I am so sorry. Your mother was truly a lovely lady. I knew her going back to 1998 both through business and the Rockets. She was very comforting to me after the loss of my wife in 2007.
