MOHR: Dorothy of Woodstock and formerly of Toronto
Dorothy Emily Mohr, January 5/1929 – April 1/2013. Passed peacefully, surrounded by family on April 1/2013. Born and raised in Toronto Dorothy (Dot) was married to her beloved childhood sweetheart George for 66 years. She was a proud and loving mother to George Jr. and Rod (Suzanne), adoring Grandmother to Melanie Mohr-Harris (Dave), Stacey Lovell (Shawn), Stephanie Johnson (Neill), Bobby Mohr, Kevin Mohr and Great-Grandmother to Amber and Mackenzie Lovell. Dorothy was predeceased by her sister and best friend Kathleen Edwards. She was also cherished as “Auntie Doe” to many. Dorothy was a career woman, who took great pride in her work at Ryerson and Maclean-Hunter. More than anything though, she enjoyed being with George, surrounded by family and friends. She was an amazing hostess who loved to entertain. There are endless cherished memories and stories of the great times at Dot and George’s dinner parties, holiday celebrations or weekends at the cottage on Nogie’s Creek.
In the words of one of her favourite Frank Sinatra songs:
And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
I’ve lived a life that’s full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
Dorothy will be greatly missed by everyone who had the honour to know and love her.
