July 31, 1932 - July 12, 2023
Dorothy passed away at the West Coast General Hospital at the age of 90, with her loving family by her side.
Predeceased by her parents, Fred and Eva Meister and husband, John.
Dorothy is survived by her children Kelly (Rod), Ken (Julie) and Tina (Rob); her grandchildren, Emily (Mitch), Matthew, Andrea (Natasha), Armerina, Aubry and Matteo and great-granddaughters, Marley and Tommie; nephew Donald (Fiona), niece Jennifer, and great-nephew, Max. Dorothy also leaves behind close friends and extended family.
Dorothy was born and raised in New Ross, Nova Scotia. After meeting John in Halifax, they moved to Port Alberni in 1956. Dorothy enjoyed working as a bookkeeper and a care aide, and also loved her time at Grandma's Trunk. Her children, grandchildren and great-granddaughters were her pride and joy; she was a mom and grandma first, and also a friend. Dorothy was kind-hearted with a great sense of humour and a feisty spirit. She will be dearly missed.
The Ludlow family extends heartfelt gratitude to friends and family for their love and support. Also appreciated is the care and attention Dorothy received from the Home Care Nursing Team, Dr. Woodley, Dr. Johnsen, and the hospital staff.
