Dorothy was predeceased by her loving husband of 57 years, Gordon R. Carter, parents Dorothy and James Hamilton, sister Eleanor and brothers Doug and Jon.

For their first 23 years together, Dorothy and Gordon lived in Sioux Lookout, Sault Ste. Marie, Desbarats and Bruce Mines, raising their young family. In 1971 they moved to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories for the adventure of-a-lifetime and the eventual birth of their nine much-loved grandchildren. A legal secretary for many years in Ontario and the Northwest Territories, Dorothy's spare time was spent helping Gordon build and enjoy their camp at Pontoon Lake (NWT), gardening, birding, rock hunting and watching over "her" loons on the lake. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dorothy's memory could be made to the Alzheimer Society of Sault Ste Marie and Algoma District, or Yellowknife Association of Concerned Citizens for Seniors, Aven Cottages, Suite 1, 5710 – 50th Avenue, Yellowknife NT X1A 1G1
