Dorothy Maureen Castle

July 6, 1931 – April 29, 2015

Dorothy Maureen Castle, 83, of Barriere, B.C., passed away April 29, 2015, with her family by her side.

She was born July 6, 1931, in New Westminster, B.C., the daughter of William and Kathleen McMillan.

Dorothy studied nursing at Essondale before marrying Edgar Castle (deceased). She moved to the Interior of B.C. later in life to be closer to her children.

Dorothy resided in the Yellowhead Pioneer Residence in Barriere, where she enjoyed the company of many good friends. She enjoyed playing crib and scrabble.

She passed her time painting, and created some beautiful pictures.

She is survived by her daughter, Diane Hale (Mel), Brenda Castle, and son Justin Traill; also her devoted brother and sister-in-law Doug and Jean McMillan of Surrey.

Dorothy had two wonderful grandchildren whom she adored, Luvena Brandt and Belle Castle; three great grandchildren, Caden Brandt, Haley Brandt and Lukin Krescey-Hale; and nieces, Nancy Booth of Surrey and Sandra Hopkins of England, as well as many more cousins, nieces, nephews and aunts.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her son Calvin Castle in December of 2014; as well as husband Edgar, and parents William and Kathleen.

The family would like to thank the Yellowhead Pioneer Residence family for the care and friendship that all of you gave our Mom. Thank You all.

There will be a small informal gathering later this summer to remember Dorothy.

‘Till we meet again, Sweet Mom.
