FRASER, Dorothy (nee Stewart) – Passed away peacefully on September 12, 2020, in her 90th year. She overcame numerous challenges and obstacles in her life always with a smile. Her body finally gave up where her will never would, sending her home to her predeceased Mother and Father, Georgina and William Stewart, Brother Bill and late husband Charles Fraser. Dorothy is survived by her children Fiona and Stewart, sister Doreen and nephew Michael in Scotland, niece Cynthia and husband Alastair, their children, Christopher (Victoria) and Niccola in England, and Philippa (Michael) in New Zealand.

Dorothy came to Canada in the early 1950’s after surviving childhood in Scotland during World War II. She was a marketing analyst for a large insurance company in downtown Toronto as well as modelling off and on TV for various companies, Hudson Bay being one of her more prestigious clients. Dorothy and her husband were active members of the overseas league, champion bowlers and enjoyed dancing the nights away. Dorothy also took on the bookkeeping/treasurer role for the executive committee. Dorothy gave it all up for motherhood and moved to Newmarket in 1969. As soon as the Bayview community association was formed, she and Ray Snow went about making Bayview Park a reality, from then it was the Horticultural society with her prize winning Peonies, Pirate Tulips and Bearded Iris. She was also a member of toastmasters, the local crafters, then found her niche when she, along with other charters members, formed the Newmarket Lioness club. She received many accolades, including the Helen Keller and LCCK award. After her role as President of the Lioness club she continued to be an active member for 39 years until her passing.

In recognition of her significant volunteer services to the town and people of Newmarket, a future park has been bestowed in her name. A fitting tribute to her measurable community involvement.

A special thank you to the congregation of St Andrews church with whom she shared many years of uplifting and social times. We also would like to extend our gratitude to the many exceptional people who played important roles in caring for our mother over the last several years.

Visitation will be held at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main St. S., Newmarket, on Saturday September 19, 2020. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, please R.S.V.P. at or call 905.895.6631 for visitation from 12:00 -1:00 p.m. or 1:30 – 2:00 p.m. A Lioness Service will take place from 1:30pm to 2pm. Memorial service in the chapel at 2:00 with same R.S.V.P. protocol. Please bring stories/pictures to pin on our memory board.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the March of Dimes or the MS Society.

No words are needed as we shall never forget, for those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen and unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed and so very dear. You will be in our hearts and minds forever.
“Bon Accord”
