Dorothy LOVERICK

LOVERICK; Dorothy (87 years). Sadly, we announce the passing of a very special and loving aunt on October 28, 2015. Dorothy passed away peacefully at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack. Dorothy was born November 27, 1927 at Chilliwack General Hospital and lived in Chilliwack all her life. She was predeceased by her husband Larry Ewald Loverick on February 1, 2015. She met Larry, the love of her life, while working as a painter in a logging camp. At 5’2”, Dorothy was the smallest of 10 children in her family. Because she was so petite, her family nicknamed her “Doll”. She helped Larry in the construction of their home in Popkum, BC. Not afraid of heights, she climbed ladders and helped put the shingles on the roof. She and Larry started up their own cabinet making business. In their business, she was bookkeeping, did sanding and painting, plus staining, varnishing and finishing. No job was too small or too large for petite Dorothy. In her spare time, with apron on, you would find her busy in the kitchen doing what she loved best – cooking, baking and canning. Dorothy (Doll) was a fabulous cook. When you went for a visit, you could tell she had been baking by the scrumptious aroma coming from the kitchen when you opened the door. Every day of the week a neighbour, friend, or family member would stop by their home. As soon as company arrived, the tea kettle was on and out came her large and delicious variety of home baked goods. If not in her kitchen, you could find her out in her immaculate garden tending to her flower beds and vegetables. She also loved company and she would encourage friends from out of town to spend a day or more with them. Entertaining was always a priority for her. Many family picnics and holiday celebrations were held at their home. She had no children and her nieces and nephews were her family. We remembered her for her fabulous cooking; her scrumptious baking – homemade bread and buns, angel food cake, fancy squares and cookies; great homemade dill pickles, bread & butter pickles and lady rose relish. Dorothy was predeceased by her father and mother, Thomas and Rosina George; six brothers, Tom, Albert, Walt, William (Bill), Doug and Frank; three sisters Kathleen, Louise (Sue) and Irene. She is survived by her sister- in-law Jean George, Williams Lake, BC and many nieces and nephews from BC to NS; and two nieces in Australia and Ireland. A special thank you to Drs. Bartel, Dueck and Bull. Also, a big thank you to the caring and compassionate staff at Cascade Manor and Hospice. Her many nieces and nephews will always remember her as a kind, caring and loving aunt. We will all miss you very much and have many favourite special memories. She will be fondly remembered and missed by many neighbours and friends. No funeral or memorial service will be held as per her request. Donations in her memory may be made to a charity of your choice.
