Dear Family and Friends, it is with unimaginable grief that I, Brian Dinsdale, announce the sudden passing of my wife Dorine Margaret Dinsdale (nee. Douglas), on Sunday, May 30, 2021. I cannot find words to describe my pain; nor to adequately acknowledge your many wonderful messages of love, I am overwhelmed and so comforted by them. Over and over you say of Do, ---- “a beautiful star that shines so brightly, kind spirit, beautiful woman, wonderful soul, band mother, kind and gentle soul, sweetheart, beautiful angel, amazing Grandma, class all the way, exuded kindness and love, special lady, beautiful person inside and out, what a doll, sunshine, ultimate caregiver, wonderful woman and partner, affectionate smile and generous spirit, a beautiful star that shines bright everywhere she went, a legacy of kindness, sweetness and thoughtfulness, Dinny’s life partner and number one fan”. How blessed I have been, to have all this in the woman I love so much. Do is God’s gift, put in my life at a time when I really needed someone to love me. Every minute we have been together over these past nineteen years, we knew how much we loved each other. Our song, “MORE THAN THE GREATEST LOVE, THE WORLD HAS KNOWN, ------ I ONLY LIVE, TO LOVE YOU, MORE EACH DAY ---“.
Dorine will be dearly missed by her sisters Helen and Marilyn, her many nieces and nephews, grandchildren and her loving cat Asia. Dorine is predeceased by brother Paul, sisters Patricia and Jane.
