Obituary For Dorothy Jean Stubbs

July 1, 1934 – April 10, 2023 Dorothy Jean Stubbs went to be with her Savior on Monday, April 10th at 10:30pm in the Beaverlodge Hospital at the age of 88 years, surrounded by her children.

Dorothy was born on July 1, 1934 in Alderwood, Ontario. As a child she was involved in competitive swimming, figure skating and piano. As a young adult she attended the Canadian Bible College (CBC) where she met her future husband, Donald. She was an active choir member there and performed many solos at concerts in Saskatchewan.

Dorothy moved to Grande Prairie in 1968 and began her 30 year career with Alberta Corrections. She loved to travel with her husband and they took many trips and cruises together throughout their 62 years of marriage. Her love for sports meant she was an avid watcher of everything from tennis and hockey to her favorite NBA games.

Dorothy is survived by her husband, Donald Stubbs, daughter Dorothy Salter (Dave), sons Donald Stubbs (Dawn), Darrin Stubbs (Toni) and Duane Stubbs. She is also survived by her grandchildren; Rhiannon Osmack (Nico McDonald), Todd Salter (Megan), Trent Stubbs, Tammy Peterson (Danny), Keeley Stubbs (Chris Hillier), Landon Stubbs, Mikayla Haley, Mack Haley and nine great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents Herbert and Gladys Bendle, sister Gwen Bendle and brother Ross Bendle.

The family would like to thank all the staff at the Hythe Pioneer Lodge and the Beaverlodge Hospital for the support and high quality care they gave to Mom during her time there.

A Celebration of Life for Dorothy will be held on Monday, April 17 at 1:00 pm at Bear Creek Funeral Home 11802 99 Avenue Grande Prairie.

    This is such a great picture of Dorothy, just a bundle of energy and a beautiful twinkly smile! I have fond memories of the two of you from church and all your kids and of course her solo's. Churches don't have members using their musical talents In the services anymore, I miss that. Very special memories. Thank you for that! It's wonderful to know your Mom is with the Lord today, but also know how much she will be missed by you, Donald and all of her children. Many blessing to all your families.
