Friday, August 2, 2019So sorry to hear about Dorothy's passing. She brought over a big platter of goodies when she found out one of my daughters was having a back yard wedding at my place. I also have fond memories of your dad. He would walk in the front door of the flower shop singing my Bonnie lies over the ocean. I feel very lucky to have known the two of themDY7LD

Monday, July 29, 2019To the entire Gilbert Family.....both Dorothy and George were just such captivating and amazing people.....Both my sister and I along with some friends had the honor to know both of them in our years of working as high school students in their "after hours" cleaning business in Ridgetown. We cleaned bank offices and several other offices through out Ridgetown in the evenings during the week while we were in high school. We had many laughs and great fun in that journey with George and Dorothy, lots of responsible work. So many youth in Ridgetown are appreciative of George and Dorothy for the job opportunities that they provided to us and we will always have fond memories of our times together. Dorothy shared her home-baked talents with all of us and her baked goodies were amazing. We are sorry we missed the visitation and funeral. We pay great tribute to both Dorothy and to George for giving us the opportunities many of us in Ridgetown will always remember both of them. Our sincerest condolences to the entire Gilbert family. Bob & Beth Stover & Family

Monday, July 29, 2019I have such fond memories of visiting Ridgetown and especially spending time with my Great Aunt Dot. She was such a warm and inviting person with an easy laugh and generous sprint. Her desserts were a little boy's dream! Huge cream pies and butter tarts that were out of this world. No one's butter tarts were like hers - they truly were special - just like her. I'll always cherish the memories I have of my Aunt Dot. She was a wonderful person and I'll miss her deeply.

Sunday, July 28, 2019I remember visiting Marcia for our pyjama parties, when I was a teenager. Mrs. Gilbert would be so welcoming, kind and hospitable to me. Marcia would ask her Mom if I could stay for supper and even with a house full of family, she would laugh her hearty laugh and put another plate on the table. I learned so much by watching her. Her beautiful platters of Christmas cookies impressed me so much, that I try to make them myself each year, but to me, they never measure up to hers. She was a great lady and a loving mother. She shall be sadly missed. Our condolences go out to you, Marcia, Vicki and Donnie and families.

Sunday, July 28, 2019Pam Hinnegan texted me about Aunt Dorothy's passing. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed spending weeks in the summer at the beautiful house. I remember her most for great laugh - she was an amazing baker and I loved sampling all her goodies. I've live in Calgary but the last time I went east for a visit, I told Mike and Pam that I wanted to see your mom. We went to Ridgetown and took her out for lunch. She was sharp as a tack and I got to enjoy that laugh again. I'm so glad that I made that trip and got to spend some time with her. I am heading east again in August so I've been thinking about your mom and trying to figure out a way that I could slip down to see her again. My condolences to all of you on her passing. She was one in a million!
