Obituary of Dorothy Turansky
Born 12 April 1924, in Greenwich, England, died peacefully with family by her side on 20 September 2015.
Predeceased by William, love of her life and thorn in her side of 63 years. Lovingly and proudly remembered by her daughters Susan (Diane), Kathryn, Laurel, Corinne, and Jacky; grandchildren Jason, Sara, Marlow, Megan, Amy, Devon, Raven, Ben, Micah and Brazil; great-grandchildren Kelsey, Brandon, Payden, Owen, River Alexander, Carsyn, Meyers, and Leone; and fur-kids Mikey and George.
It is impossible to sum up any life in a few short words and Dorothys 91 years and unabashed character are no exception: Brit, wife, mother, WWII WAAF veteran (mechanic), Canadian, friend, grandmother, grandnanny, sister, aunt, animal-lover, murder mystery addict, bird-watcher, accidental sharpshooter, free-thinker, gardener, truth-teller, beer drinker, quiet comedienne, fish & chips connoisseur, royal watcher, smartass, swimmer. Dorothy lives on in the acerbic wit and fierce independence of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, in the memories of all who crossed her path, and in the perfect cup of tea - strong, milk first, no sugar (shes sweet enough).
