Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Dorothy Evelyn Engel announces her passing on Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Born in March of 1922 in Regina Saskatchewan, to Agnes and Jack McEachern, Dorothy had just celebrated her 95th birthday.

Predeceased by her husband Dan Engel in 1990, and her brothers Steve McEachern, William McEachern and Elmer McEachern, all in the last decade. Her brother Jerry McEachern was lost during the Second World War in 1943.

Dorothy moved to the Edmonton area in 1960 to raise her family together with Dan. She returned to the workforce in 1984 and spent her last fifteen years as a buyer for the Edmonton Separate School Board. She was a dedicated volunteer with the CWL, until her memory and age prevented active participation.

She is survived by her children, Dan Engel, Michael Engel (Evelyn), Patricia Engel, Colleen Haughian (Garry) and William Engel (Sheila); 18 grandchildren; and 19.5 great-grandchildren! She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

Prayers will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 11, 2017, at Connelly-McKinley Edmonton South Chapel (4820 Meridian Street NW Edmonton) with a Visitation starting one hour prior at 6:30 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Theresa’s Catholic Parish (7508 29 Ave NW, Edmonton) on Friday, May 12, 2017, at 10:30 a.m., with interment to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Dorothy’s memory may be made to Alzheimer/Dementia Society of Alberta or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
