It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dorothy Dakins on February 6th, 2023 at Craigwiel Gardens in her 65th year. Dorothy will be missed by many family members and friends.


Dorothy was adored by many people.  She loved her home at Crest Support Services. Her friends and support staff quickly became a part of her family.  She enjoyed doing puzzles, singing karaoke to her favourite county songs, watching Netflix and dancing. Dorothy was an avid collector of sport jerseys, dolls and stuffed animals. She was an excellent advocate for the disabled and homeless. Dorothy was a feisty individual with a huge heart.


A special thank you to the staff at Crest Support Services and Craigwiel Gardens for their care and compassion.
