Dorothy Crocker

Dorothy CrockerPeacefully in Milton, surrounded by her loving family, on Friday March 16, 2018 in her 95th year. Dear wife of 48 years of the late Rev. Douglas L. Crocker. Loving mother of David (Helen), Diane (Norm Bailey), Rev. Doug (Ann), Debbie Coulombe (Rick) and Doreen. Proud grandmother of Cara Crocker, Ben and Colin Bailey, Drew, Paul, Jill and Tristan Crocker, Brendan, Taylor, Marc and Courtney Coulombe, Hollie and Austin Marshall and great grandmother of Madeleine, Avery, Lilly and Ella. Dear sister of Rosina Toulson and predeceased by siblings Lloyd, Howell, Grace and Albina.

Born within the Welsh community of Bangor, Saskatchewan, Dorothy had a delightful sense of humour and much appreciated uplifting spirit in each of the four congregations her husband served where they made lifelong friends. From Port Alberni, B.C., to Eckville, Alta., Dayspring (formerly Rupert Street), Edmonton, Alta and Iona (the first multi-denominational church of the PCC) in Canada, Dorothy’s willingness to cross boundaries and extend hospitality to all made their home a welcome and engaging place for everyone, from university professors, to national church staff, and to people throughout the community from every walk of life.

A service in celebration of Dorothy Crocker will be held on Saturday, March 24th at 2 pm with visitation from 1 pm at the J. Scott Early Funeral Home, 21 James St., Milton, ON. The family appreciates memorial donations to a church or charity of your choice and Wilfred Laurier University Music Therapy Program or the Willow Foundation supporting life enrichment for seniors.

    A vibrant and strong personality from my formative years in Alberta. A welcoming and engaging woman who was wonderfully gifted in making friends from all generations. She was also a dear friend to my aunt, who considered her a valued confidante across the years. My sympathy to all of her children, who have continued that value of friendship in the next generation.
