    We have many fond memories of times spent with Dorothy and David since the early 1970s. Dorothy was a very compassionate person, who was always willing to help whenever needed.
    She had a very interesting and rewarding career and a life full of good friends.
    With our sincere sympathies,
    Stan, Anne, Julie and Mark Coster

  • Linda Spiller (nee: Gaigg) says:

    Dorothy and Dave Proudfoot were our neighbours on Gellatly Road when I was growing up in the 70’s. Dorothy was such a pleasant, strong woman, an excellent role model for a young girl who helped to steer me in my career direction. She and her husband were great friends with my parents (predeceased)and I have many fond memories of us all sharing occasions, both large and small, together.
    I am very sorry for your loss.
    With kind regards,
    Linda Spiller (nee: Gaigg)
