Blair DorothyBLAIR, Dorothy Joyce - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of o

ur beloved mother and grandmother, Dorothy Joyce Blair, affectionately known as Dotty. She passed away peacefully at her home in Markham, Ontario on Sunday, June 28, 2020.

Dotty was born in Lucea, Jamaica to George and May McFarlane on October 10, 1931. With her sense of adventure and optimism, she immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1958.

She pursued her career as a Registered Nurse, beginning at St Michael’s Hospital, then moving on to Scarborough General Hospital, Centenary Hospital and Leisure World Nursing home.

In 1960, Dotty married Scotsman Dugald Blair (now deceased) and raised a family of four daughters in Scarborough, before moving to Markham in the early 1980s.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: Elizabeth and Jim, Deborah and Matt, Andrea and Frank, and Catherine. She will be dearly missed by her grandchildren, Drew, Lakeisha, Erica, Nicola, Matthew, Nathan, Garrett and Julia, and her niece, Denise.

We take comfort in knowing she is eternally reunited with her late husband Dugald and sister Gloria Dewar.

Dotty’s most enduring legacy will always be her unwavering commitment, love and devotion towards her family and friends.

A funeral mass will be held at St Patrick’s Parish, Markham on Friday July 3rd at 11:00 am for immediate family only due to COVID-19 restrictions.

We welcome all of Dotty’s remaining family and friends to participate in the celebration of her life from their homes via a livestream recording of the Mass.  Please contact Dotty’s granddaughter Lakeisha, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We thank you for understanding that during this pandemic, there will not be a visitation. There will be a private family burial. We invite Dorothy’s family and friends to pay their respects at Christ the King Cemetery at a future time of their choosing.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Dotty to the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society (at would be sincerely appreciated.
