Dorothy June (Hern) Weimerhas “boarded the bus” and is with our Lord. Her bus ticket was stamped on Monday, July 15, 2019.

   Dorothy was a graduate of London High School and Mount Carmel School of Nursing, Class of 1952. She retired from nursing after 60 years. Some may remember Dorothy as “Dr. Hay’s Nurse.” They worked together for over 40 years.

   Dorothy led a wonderful and fulfilling life. With Bill they traveled to many places.  Whether it was north, south, east or west, wherever family and friends could be found, Bill and Dorothy would surely visit.  International destinations were not off-limits either when it came to Family.  Target-Sigonella, Sicily where they met up with Mary’s family for a train trip to Germany.
   Dorothy and Robyn made several trips to “the state up North” and Alaska to visit Elizabeth’s family and welcome her three great-grandsons, Chayn Isaac (Rooster), Grey William, and Merric Gabriel Cornwell.
   Back home, she thoroughly enjoyed David’s family with her two great-granddaughters, Aubrey June and Sawyer Marie Weimer.
