In Loving Memory
Dorothy (nee Gallant) Daly

Beloved wife of Maurice V. Daly predeceased 2005. Loving mother of Patricia Sutton (Donald), Michael Daly, Joanne Prudden (Joe) and George Daly. Cherished grandmother of Greg Sutton, Dan and Nikki Prudden, Shawn, Erin (Rob Brooks) and Megan Daly and great grandmother of Kerrigan and Michaila. Dear daughter of John I. "Raney" and Beatrice Gallant both predeceased. Dear sister of George Gallant, Mary McQuiston and Joan Gallant all predeceased. Sadly missed by loving nieces and nephews.
Dorothy started volunteering at the age of 14 in Charlottetown, PEI where she grew up. At 17 she assisted in WWII efforts. After marriage in Montreal, this at-home mother continued volunteering at both St. Mary’s and Douglas Hospitals, including fund raising efforts. At St. Jean Brebeuf Church (Mtl.), she took part in the choir, and coordinated bazaars for the craft group.
Because of her husband’s work with the Society for Non-Destructive Testing, Dorothy served for two years as Chairperson of the Ladies Committee, attending meetings in Ontario and Quebec, for the 1967 Fifth International Conference of NDT.
In Sudbury, Dorothy was a member of the One-eleven Seniors Centre, serving on the Board of Directors and as craft committee coordinator, and choir member, making many friends there. She faithfully attended the Club One-eleven Bingo. Dorothy was always busy with her various crafts and loved to read.
