Oct 3, 1924 – Nov 29, 2021

It is with great sadness the family of Dorothy “Dot” Craine from Morinville, AB announce her passing on November 29th, 2021 at the age of 97.

Dot is survived by daughters Esther Deep and Amelia Peterson, grandchildren Sharlene (Andres) Matheson, Carl Peterson, Dana Peterson, great-grandchildren Alexander and Sarah Matheson, beloved friend Charlie Challman, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, and her many friends.

Music was a big part of Dot’s life. She played a button accordion for birthday parties, dances, weddings and even at church. Dot enjoyed travelling with friends and family and went on many bus tours and several trips to the music festival in Minot, ND. Dot and her son Allan would travel all around visiting family whenever he came home for visits. She enjoyed playing crib and Scrabble and always carried a Circle-the-Word book when travelling.

She was predeceased by her husband Herb Craine, son Allan Craine, brothers Bill and George “Mutt” Brotherwood, and sister Kate Howell.

Dot was someone you couldn’t help but love. She was always such a positive person, with a smile on her face, a great sense of humour and was a joy to be around. She will be dearly missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society, Suite 202, 1001 – 1st Street S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 5G3 or a charity of your choice.

Due to Covid restrictions, a private service will be held on Dec 9, 2021.
