Dorothy May Creed

29th May 1931 - 24th February 2021

Dear Dorothy

Our darling mum passed away on the 24th February 2021, a little short of her 90th Birthday, and while it certainly wasn’t unexpected it was a sad demise and a painful loss.

Dorothy remained in her home with Mark and Mandy through until the end. She was showered with love and kindness and in spite of the ravages of her dementia, she regularly recognised and remembered her family, so knew she was safe , never alone.
