DOROTHY ELIZABETH MANSON (published on January 31, 2009)

DOROTHY ELIZABETH MANSON (nee MCKAY) Peacefully, in Toronto, after a brief illness, on Friday, January 30, 2009, Dorothy Elizabeth Manson, formerly of Domain and Winnipeg. Predeceased by her husband, James, and her parents, Lillian and George McKay, she is survived by her loving son Ian and his wife Noelle Boughton, of Toronto; her brother George McKay of Gibsons, BC and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Born in Sanford, Manitoba on May 6, 1920, Dorothy graduated from Winnipeg Normal School in 1941, and taught for a number of years at Norquay School before moving with Jim to the Domain area. While continuing to support the work of the family farm, she returned to the classroom in 1973, first at Domain Elementary, then at J.A. Cuddy Elementary in Sanford, where she taught Kindergarten and impressed many with her caring and committed approach to her students. An accomplished pianist who earned her Grade XI in music from the University of Manitoba, she accompanied many school assemblies and productions. A lifelong member of the United Church, she supported the Avonlea United Church as a U.C.W. member, Sunday School teacher, and substitute organist, and upon retiring to Winnipeg in 1988, enjoyed the warm fellowship of Trinity United Church. A determined, independent and caring woman, she was a loving and supportive wife and mother who will be sorely missed. Cremation has taken place, and a memorial service will be held at Trinity United Church, 933 Summerside on Tuesday, February 3, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Flowers gratefully declined. Memorial donations to Trinity United Church or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba would be greatly appreciated.
