Back to Dorthy's LifeWeb


Mother & wife Dorthy Margret Benham (Fountain) passed away suddenly on Sunday November 14th, 2021 at the age of 69 after unexpected complications from surgery. The last week she was surrounded by loved ones 24/7 who will strive to honour her memory by living their lives to the fullest, as once again we are reminded life can be short, and you never know what tomorrow brings.

The simplest pleasures in life, such as reading True Crime Novels, enjoying her months at the trailer for the past 30 years. She could often be found exploring her gardens, watching the hummingbirds and chipmunks while sitting on her deck.

Dorthy is survived by her husband, Bruce: her children Cindy, Michelle (Jason) & Leanne (Mike); her grandchildren Kurtt, Natasha & Avery

May you always walk in sunshine,

and God's around you flow.

For the happiness you gave us,

No one will ever know.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you did not go alone.

A part of us went with you the day God called you home.

A million times we needed you

A million times we cried.

If love could have saved you

You would've never died.

The Lord be with you and may you rest in peace.
