In Loving Memory Of

Dorothy May Ireland


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Dorothy May Ireland (nee Funnell) on Monday, April 3, 2017, at the age of 82 years, one month short of her 83rd birthday.

Dorothy was very passionate about her involvement with the Grande Prairie and District Old Timers’ Association over the years and was very proud to be involved with their Scholarship Program.

Dorothy loved to talk about the good old days, enjoyed spending time in her garden, and loved to knit and crochet for her family. We spent many memorable hours in the blueberry patch with mum, and we will miss her dearly.

Dorothy is survived by her children: Leslie (Ken) Shaw, Stuart (Bonnie) Ireland, Lisa (Camille) Lagace, Mark (Kathy) Ireland, and Rex (Cora-Lee) Ireland; 14 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, sister Gwen (Ewart) Loucks, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Dorothy was predeceased by her parents: Thomas Funnell and Ethel Funnell (nee Bastin); sisters: Betty Haiste and Mary Marcy; and her husband Guy Ireland.

A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017, at 11:00am, at Oliver’s Funeral Home in Grande Prairie (10005 107 Ave.). A Lunch will follow.

Memorial donations may be made to the Grande Prairie and District Old Timers’ Association, Scholarship Fund (Box 21028, Grande Prairie, AB, T8V 6W7).
