It is with heavy hearts the family announces Mom's (Grandma's, Great Grandma's) passing at Maplestone Enhanced Care on Monday in her 93rd year.
A life long resident of Halifax, Mom was born to John Alexander and Pearl Loretta (Mills) Campbell. She attended Sir Charles Tupper School and Halifax Academy. She was employed with Sears Canada and later with Fosberg and Mitchell Ltd.

Mom was a member of the United Church of Canada for over 80 years and a regular for Sunday service at St John's United in Halifax for more than 60 years. She actively took part in her children's lives while they were growing up by being a member of the Ardmore, Chebucto and Queen Elizabeth Home and School Associations. She also was secretary of the Wanderers Track and Field Club. She actively took part in her grandchildren's lives by being their number one fan at their numerous sporting events.

Mom loved life and could find joy and amusement out of the smallest of things. Her hearty laugh could be heard over a boisterous crowd and she always had time for children, animals and those less fortunate than herself. She gave freely of her time to volunteer for the Nova Scotia Rehab Auxillary and St Theresa's Church luncheons. Mom enjoyed bowling, baking cookies, swimming at the Waegwaltic club, Friday night shopping, Sunday BBQs and walking her little dog Mitzie.

Besides her parents she was predeceased by her husband, Charles (Mike) Edward Dunbrack, sister Margie Ryan, brother Edward Campbell and her daughter Nancy Tokaryk.

Survived by her daughters Sharon Daikens, Halifax, Susan Beazley (Ken) Brookside, son Gary Dunbrack (Mary), Hammonds Plains, and son-in-law Fred Tokaryk, Halifax. She is also survived by ten grandchildren; John Elder, Halifax, Scott Tokaryk (Jana) Germany, Sarah Tousignant (Rene) Timmins, Jeffrey Dunbrack (Monique) Ottawa, Andrew Dunbrack (Colleen), Waterloo, Peter Dunbrack (Heather), Fall River and Katherine Gale (Jeremy), Enfield, Amanda, Emily, Halifax, Michael (Ashley) Beazley, Tantallon. Dorothy is also survived by eight great grandchildren,

Visitation with the family will be at JA Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Drive, Halifax on Thursday April 11th 2-4 and 7-9. A celebration of Dorothy's life will take place Friday April 12th at 2:00 pm in Snow's chapel with Rev. Linda Yates officiating. Internment in St John's Cemetery, Fairview.
