FITZPATRICK, Dorothy -- Died peacefully at her home in Sarasota, Florida, November 11, 2002 in her 102nd year. Dorothy has been a resident of Sarasota since 1986 and was predeceased by three husbands: Frank BARKER (1941) Wendell GRAY/GREY (1979) and E. Boyd FITZPATRICK (1993.) She is survived by two sons, Peter BARKER (Pat) of Barrie, Ontario and Gerry BARKER (Barbara) of Wasaga Beach, Ontario and Sarasota; six grandchildren, Richard BARKER (Carol) Toronto, Ontario, Susan Barker FOGELS (Alvis) of Holland Centre, Ontario, Janet Barker THURN (Greg) of Calgary, Alberta, Lori PAVELY, (Ken) of Leaskdale, Ontario,, Lesley BARKER- THOMAS (Acheson) of Oakville, Ontario, Jonathan BARKER (Alexandra) of London, Ontario; and 11 great-grandchildren. Dorothy was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, March 22, 1901. She emigrated to Canada when she was six years old and settled in Calgary, Alberta. In 1921 she married Frank BARKER following his service during World War I and post war assignment in Siberia. Following the death of her first husband in 1941, she went to work with the Young Women's Christian Association in the war services branch. Her duties included providing home comfort support to young Commonwealth Air Training Plan aircrew in Aylmer, Ontario. Later, with her mother, she was posted to Ottawa to work with Royal Canadian Women's Naval personnel in a similar capacity. When the war ended, she resumed her writing career and worked as a correspondent for the Toronto Globe and Mail. She joined the Aurora Banner as an editor and later became publisher. During that period in her life she won several National Newspaper awards presented by both the Ontario Weekly Newspaper Association and the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association. Her proudest moment was winning best editorial page in her class awarded by the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association in 1958. Dorothy left the newspaper business to write a weekly column for the Canadian National Railway for whom she travelled to various parts of Canada to report interesting stories of the country and its people. The weekly column, Diary of a Vagabond was carried in Canadian community newspapers. In 1970, she moved to South Natick, Massachusetts where she wed Wendell GRAY/GREY. Following Mr. GRAY/GREY's passing in 1979, she moved briefly back to Canada before marrying Boyd FITZPATRICK of Olean, New York in 1980. Mr. FITZPATRICK was publisher of the Olean Times Herald. Age 96, she wrote, in longhand, her life story, Sometimes there was an angel on my shoulder. The book traced her life experiences and was edited by her son, Gerry and his wife Barbara. It was her wish that her body be donated to the University of Florida Medical School for medical research. Maybe they will discover why I lived so long, and that will help other people in the future she said following her decision. A remembrance of her life will be held in Toronto in the spring of 2003.
