Kitty Dobson (b. Catharina Duisters) passed away at South Terrace Continuing Care in Edmonton on October 8, 2010 at the age of 93.
Kitty, wife of the late Robert Dobson, was loving mother to Roberta Baril (Raymond), aunt to Peggy (Kelly), Jim (Maureen) , Bill and Jim (Louise), and the best Oma in the world to Lauren and Amanda. She was predeceased by her sisters Ann, Mein, and Steine. Kitty was born in Utrecht, Holland and came to Canada in 1958. She was a devoted and caring nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital until the age of 75. Kitty was an incredibly strong, giving and determined woman who loved the ocean, her family and her work. She believed in living each day to its fullest. In retirement she found true joy in caring for her granddaughters, Lauren and Amanda, who were the lights of her life.
Thank you to the staff at South Terrace Continuing Care Centre for their compassion and loving care. Cremation and internment will be private. A gathering to celebrate Kitty\'s life will be announced at a later date.
As an expression of sympathy, a donation to South Terrace Continuing Care Centre, 5905 - 112 Street, Edmonton, or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family. To send condolences, please visit: www.connelly-mckinley.com.
