DERZBACH, Dorothy Derzbach  -  Heaven has been blessed with another Angel.

Dorothy passed away peacefully at her home on April 27th just 23 days after Werner, her loving husband for 63 years, passed away before her.

Theirs was a true love story. 

Loving mother of Michelle Landry (Mike Griffiths) and Mike Derzbach (Margo), Cherished Oma of Brittany (David Della Fazia), Holly Landry and Steffanie Derzbach (Patrick).

Beloved brothers Tony Baran (Rose) and Joe Melnick (Mary) and sister Olga Melnick. 

Dorothy was born in Oshawa, Ontario on August 20th, 1933, to her parents Mary and Thomas Melnick. 

She enjoyed many travel adventures with her loving husband Werner to the Caribbean as well as memorable winters in Florida where she also invited her beloved granddaughters to join them.

She was a wonderful caring mother, and grandmother who will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Arrangements with Northcutt Elliott Funeral Home, Bowmanville.
