Dorothy Helen (Arn) Fleming

November 1, 1922 ~ March 1, 2020 (age 97)


FLEMING – Dorothy (“Dot”), age 97, passed away peacefully on March 1, 2020, at Whispering Pine Place Care Home in Canwood, SK.  She was born on November 1, 1922, to Fred and Lily Arn and raised in the Crescent Hill area near Kinistino, SK. She was predeceased by her sister and brothers, Evelyn, Alex, Herbert, and John. Dorothy farmed in the Kinistino area with her husband, Gordon, who passed away in 2016. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Deb (and her husband Jim Jensen) and son Doug (and his wife Pat). Dorothy had four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren: Carla Jensen and her husband, Ben Heumann (with daughter, Isla), Laura (Jensen) Marshall and her husband Karl (with daughter, Scarlet), Adam Fleming and his wife Carly (with sons, Cameron and Bowen), and Derek Fleming and his wife Loretta Kong (with daughter, Violet, and son, Hugo).

Dorothy’s family fondly remembers the love she put into her cooking: the big Christmas dinners and other meals featuring home-grown food and freshly-baked pies.  Visits were keenly anticipated and especially visits from grandchildren.  Dorothy loved to dance and enjoyed the companionship and a good laugh. 

No service will be held at this time; the family will hold a memorial in the spring of 2020.  The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the nurses and staff at Whispering Pine Place for their loving care. Anyone wishing to do so can make donations in Dorothy’s memory to Whispering Pine Place, Canwood, SK.  Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Beau “Lac” Funeral Home, Tammy Smart, Director, Shellbrook, SK. 306-747-2828.
