MONTROSE, Dorothy Anne (nee Fraser)

Posted by on January 29, 2013

web_montrose_dorothy

The world lost a loving, laughing and caring woman Monday night, when Dorothy Anne Montrose breathed her final breath.  Born May 23, 1922, Dorothy and her twin sister Kathleen grew up happily in Walkerville, often sharing dinner with federal cabinet ministers and Supreme Court Justices – friends of her father, Gordon Fraser, a prominent Windsor lawyer, and her mom, Annie Laurel Fraser.  After high school, Dorothy joined the army, hoping to see the world, but was stationed in Kitchener.  At war’s end, Sgt. Major Fraser met Lieut. Wilson (Monty) Montrose, and they wed July 26, 1947.  Dorothy and Monty (2000) had three children: Ian Fraser, Ann Laurel (James Smith), and Margaret Ann.  Dorothy busied her days with “mom stuff”, cooking, baking (she was renowned for her English muffins), attending sporting events, Reach for the Top games and everything else in between.  She also found time for golf (you’d often hear a single-syllable epithet after an errant shot), curling, bridge, Rummoli, reading, gardening, and keeping watch (literally and figuratively) over her grandchildren Dr. Reagan Gale and Graeme Montrose.  Dorothy’s and Monty’s love for them was endless and unconditional.  She also loved her grandchildren Amanda, Heather and Cameron.  Dorothy found comfort in the back pew of Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church, where for years she’d share time with her church friends and enjoy Rev. Wendy Patterson’s sermons.  Thanks Wendy.  In her mid-eighties, Mom also volunteered to drive “old people” to appointments, and was heartsick when she gave up her licence.  Her life was full of travelling adventures, first with Monty and then Laurel and Reagan.  Dorothy sheltered and loved many dogs and is survived by her four-legged pal George.  Mom loved her dog with all her heart.  Dorothy wanted no fuss after her death.  Cremation was held. Arrangements entrusted to

Families First

3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor,

A memorial service will be held on Friday, February 1st at 2:30 p.m. at Paulin Memorial Church.  If you wish, make a donation to the charity dear to her heart, Sleeping Children Around the World.

We love you Mom, Grandma, and we will miss you so much.

John got his wish.  He passed away peacefully in his sleep at HDGH, with his beloved daughter, Rita, by his side. Reunited with his dear wife, Mary (2004) on January 24, 2013.  Much loved Opa of Kyle. Survived by his sister, Sophie, in the Ukraine.  John was born in Poland on June 29, 1922, was raised in the Ukraine, and then moved to Germany where he met his future wife. He emigrated to Canada in 1946, found work, and then sent for Mary. Together, they built a life in Windsor and shared many good times with their dear friends, the Kolody and Wolf families.  John worked at Chrysler for 30 years.  He enjoyed bowling and woodworking after his retirement in 1981. More recently, his favourite pastime has been scratching Bingo cards, bought daily from the gang at the Seminole Shoppers.  He was fondly nicknamed “Grumpy” because of the souvenir hat from Disneyworld that he always wore. The hat was always a conversation-starter, especially on his frequent visits to family doctor, Dale Ziter, who always asked, “How’s Grumpy?”  My sincere thanks to Dr. Dale for his kind attention and care for over 25 years; he and his staff members, Sue and Liz, are wonderful, compassionate people. John will always be remembered for his strong work ethic and his physical strength. He was a proud man, never asking for help, but always offering it. Opa was also extremely proud of his grandson’s outstanding academic achievements. At John’s request, there will be no service.  Cremation has taken place.  Arrangements entrusted to WINDSOR CHAPEL FUNERAL HOME (Banwell Chapel) 519-253-7234  11677 Tecumseh Rd. E. at Banwell. Rest in peace Daddy/Opa..you will be forever missed.  Online condolences and cherished memories may be shared with the family at www.windsorchapel.com
