It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy McEachern, originally of Grimshaw, and later Edmonton, on November 12, 2016, at the age of 90 years. She will be forever remembered as a very loving wife, mother, and grandmother.

Dorothy is survived by three daughters and one son, Linda (Dale), Laurie, Kathy, and Tim (Betty). She is also survived by her fourteen grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren. Brad (Linda), Adam (Alina) (Isabella, and Sophia), Stephen, Gillian (Russell) (Ella), Jason (Alissa) (Ashton and Kaitlyn), Kelly (Jolene) (Taneen), Corey (Debbie) (Hunter and Maverick), Chris (Ashley) (Luke), Erin (Pete) (Gianna, Perina, Teressa, Jan, Eda, Simeon, and Nathaniel), Melissa, Sarah (Tom) (Elizabeth and Anastasia), Ana (James) (Susannah), Blair and Aidan, as well as many nieces, nephews, and family friends. Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, all her siblings, her loving husband, Edgar, and one son, Pat.

Dorothy graduated from the Miserecordia Hospital Nursing School, and spent many years working as a night nurse, and later as a private duty nurse. She was an ardent sports fan, and truly loved her Oilers and Eskimos.

Dorothy loved being with her family, and truly was the matriarch of a large family.

  2. Dear Linda, Laurie, Tim, Kathy and families,

    Remembering many years of good friendship, laughter and tears. I was so grateful to be at your mom’s 90th birthday party; it was fun to hear her say “Minerva,” the name of my cat of many years ago; proved to me that she really remembered me! May God comfort you as you mourn her loss. Love, Lillian Massena

    Praying for you as you gather together with close family and friends to remember your mom. May God bless and comfort you through this time. Sorry I won’t still be in Edmonton for her service, but know I am thinking of you. Love, Susie

  3. Dear McEachern family, we are sorry for your loss. We lift up prayers for the repose of Dorothy’s soul, and for peace for her family as you mourn her passing. Much love from our family to yours.
