SAFIR, Dorothy (nee GOLDMAN) - From Dundalk, ON, passed away so peacefully on October 5, 2016.
She will be dearly missed by her children, devoted daughter Shari-Lyn Safir, Jay Safir (Diane) and Lansa Parker (Larry) and loving grandchildren David-Tyler and Nathan Safir and Jessica, Aaron and Rachel Parker.
Beloved wife of the late Oren Safir. Dorothy led an accomplished life.
This loving mother and lauded teacher (both elementary school and the first special education teacher in all of Northwestern Ontario) found time to be an executive member of Beta Sigma Phi and on the Board of Education.
Dorothy cultivated her love of sports even playing hockey long before women participated in the sport. As an adult she enjoyed golf, skiing and playing tennis. Admired for throwing wonderful parties, her wicked sense of humour and her fashion sense. She enjoyed her travels immensely and her love of dancing won Dorothy and Oren many a competition.
She also found the time to attend the sporting activities of her three children and always encouraged them to do their best. A kind and loving soul, she will be forever in our hearts and deeply missed.
Funeral Service will be held at Benjamin's Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Ave. West, on Sunday, October 9th at 10 a.m. and Shiva at 484 Steeles Ave. West, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and Monday, October 10th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.
In memory of Dorothy, donations may be made to Parkinson Society Canada.
