"OOS" 2008 Obituary


OOSTEN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-18 published
MacARTHUR, Dorothy Frances (née TOMLINSON) "Tootie"
Peacefully on Saturday, June 14th, 2008. Loving and devoted wife, for 61 years, of the late Cam. Wonderful mother to Judy (Fergus), Cam (Leah), Heather and Jamie (Terry). Doting grandmother to 12 and great-grandmother to 10. Born in Toronto, she grew up in Winnipeg. She and Cam settled in Oakville following World War 2 and raised their children on Dundas Street (now Trafalgar) until moving to "the farm" north of Oakville in 1961. She loved her family. Each Sunday she hosted large family dinners, serving heaping portions of brisket and tomato aspic. Known for being a great conversationalist, these occasions were true family events at which she held court with everyone from toddlers to seniors. With her sense of humour and quick wit she would often have a crowd of people in stitches. With Cam, her soul mate, she regularly attended extended family reunions and events across Canada and the United States. When she wasn't at her family's sports, scholastic or other events, she was enjoying summers at the cottage on Georgian Bay -- always catching the biggest fish! Warm winters were spent in Tortola, British Virgin Islands with visits from family members and Friends. To Tortolans, she and Cam were family and the feeling was mutual. Survived by her sister Jean of Toronto. Predeceased by her brothers Joe of Nassau and Bill of Thunder Bay. Beloved aunt of many nieces and nephews. Resilient in all facets of her life, she faced recent health challenges head-on with an upbeat attitude. Each moment was lived to the fullest. No doubt, she's already ordered a hot dog and beer to enjoy with her beloved Cam. A heartfelt thank you from the family to Brenda OOSTEN, whose loving care and compassion over the last five years granted mom her wish to remain at home, at "the farm." Visitation will be held at the Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville (one block east of Kerr, 905-844-2600), Friday evening from 6-9 p.m. A Service to celebrate Dorothy's life will be held on Saturday, June 21, 2008 at Saint_Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville at 1: 00 p.m. If desired, memorial contributions to the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
