Dorothy Louise Hoar, 80, of Forest Dale Home and formerly of Waterside, passed away peacefully on October 26, 2020 at Forest Dale Home with her loving family by her side. Dorothy was born in Hebron, NB, on July 27, 1940 and was the daughter of the late Frank and Annie (Alcorn) Rossiter.
Dorothy graduated from the Alma school in 1958. She continued her education by attending Teacher's College in Fredericton, N.B. where she achieved a teaching diploma in 1959. She returned home to take up employment at the Alma school. While teaching at Alma Consolidated School, she attended night school and summer courses at the University of Moncton until she received her Masters in education. Dorothy was dedicated to her students and tried to make learning fun for all. She was the type of teacher that would twist an ear, take a hand, open a mind, and touch a heart. She retired from teaching after 35 years of service.
Dorothy was an active member of her community. She was a member of the West River United Church, and was a lifetime member of the West River UCW. She taught Sunday school, led youth groups, Vacation Bible School, was a Scout Canada leader, volunteered at Forest Dale and served as president of the Ladies Auxiliary. She organized and called BINGO at the nursing home every Tuesday afternoon for years. One event that Dorothy is most famous to have organized was the yearly apple pie fundraiser, whether it was for the school or the church.
She was the happiest in her garden and driving her four-wheeler towing her grandchildren behind her in a cart. Dorothy would say that her greatest achievement was her family. She loved her three boys, Roger Lee, Edward John and Darren Frank. Her family meant everything to her and when the grandchildren and great grandchildren started arriving for her this was a new lease on life. She then became known as "Grammie Grunt". She has left her family with a legacy of pure unconditional love and was a true inspiration to them all and to anyone that had the privilege of knowing her.
She will be deeply missed by her three sons: Roger (Sandy) of St. Andrews, Edward (Brenda) of Waterside, Darren (Alice) of Waterside; her cherished grandchildren, William, Dorothy (Randy), Joanna (Donald), Laura-Lee (Yves), Melissa, Nathan (Amanda), Jennifer (Merle), and Jeff; her great grandchildren, Nora, Sadie, Henry, Vivianne, Elizabeth, William "Liam", Edward "Teddy", Kinnear, Hartford, Rosemary, Nadele and Julie; her brother, Arnold Rossiter (Linda) of Waterside; brothers-in-law, Sterling (Velma) and George (Vivian); sisters-in-law, Mabel and Mary. She will also be missed by all her extended family, nieces and nephews and many friends.
Besides her parents she was predeceased by her beloved husband of 59 years Reginald; by her infant granddaughter, Angela; sisters-in-law, Verna (Everett), Della (Glen), Jean (Joe), Marilyn (Ray); brothers-in-law: Gerald, Frank (Ann), Donnie and Everett.
She will be resting at the Albert County Funeral Home with visitation on Thursday, October 29th from 6-9pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks are required, social distancing will be followed and a limited number of people in the building at one time. A private funeral service will be held at the Albert County Funeral Home. Interment will be in the Waterside Cemetery, Waterside, NB. A Celebration of Her Life will be held at a later date when it is safe for everyone to attend.
Donations to the Parkinson Society or to the charity of the donor's choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.
Dorothy's family would like to thank all of the staff at Forest Dale Home for their care and compassion given their mother. Also a special thank you to Susan and Beverly for all of their love and care.
Arrangements are in the care of the Albert County Funeral Home, 4130 Route 114, Hopewell Cape, NB, E4H 3K2 734-2780

1939 – 2020
Eleanor Jane McLaughlin of Coverdale Rd Riverview, passed away peacefully with the love of her family all by her side, on Sunday, the 25th day of October 2020.
Jane was 80 years of age when she passed with congestive heart failure. Born in Woodstock NB in year 1939, she was the daughter of the late Hollis and Eleanor (Dot) London of Riverview NB. Graduated from Moncton High School in 1959. She went on to study nursing at the Moncton Hospital, then graduated in 1960. Shortly there afterwards, was married to her best friend and love Ralph Wayne McLaughlin in December of 1960. They moved to France as Wayne was in the Air Force for a total of four years (2 years in Germany). They had two children while in France, then moved back to Canada, being a wonderful homemaker having two more children.
Jane loved to travel and enjoyed her road trips, especially going to the markets. She had planned one trip in particular to the sunny coast of California, including the cities of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco! One of her favourite highlights was in the city of Solvang, with its Danish style of architecture. Her love of family was very important to her enjoying those times together with warmth and laughter, she loved to bake (like her Mom) her coconut cream pies were her specialty, best pie crusts hands down! Loved the bakery breads too. She also had a great love for fashion and jewelry. With her love of people (no shyness there) she also loved music, would draw in a crowd and please everyone with her singing and piano. She also sang in duets and trios at the Baptist church in the Miramichi. Also sang in a choir at the Moncton Wesleyan Church. Singers that were her favourites growing up were Doris Day, John Gary, Engelbert Humperdinck, and especially loved hearing Eddy Arnold playing on the “turntable“. In her school days she had a love for spelling and words…had always kept every card and letter that was given to her over the years.
“That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love” Colossians 2:2
She is survived by her loving husband Ralph Wayne McLaughlin, married almost 60 years, son Robin (Karen) McLaughlin, daughters Jill McLaughlin, Lori (Jim) Gillies, and Jewel McLaughlin, 10 grandchildren Jeremiah, Joel, Kristy, Daniel, Katie, Justine, Thomas, Brad, Sean and Sarah, six great-grandchildren Léo, Luca, Hendrik, Remy, Halle and Bennett, Sister Gloria (Pete) LeBlanc of Riverview.

As per her wishes there will be a private family gathering invites only.
Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
