Dorothy (Dodie) Margaret (nee Wells) Milton

MILTON, Dorothy (Dodie) Margaret (nee WELLS) was born in Victoria, BC on December 7, 1936 and passed away on January 17, 2021 at Sidney Care Home in Sidney, BC after a lengthy battle with Dementia. Dodie lived in Victoria, Nova Scotia, Sooke, Sidney and a few summers at the Quarantine Station (now William Head Institution) where her father was stationed.

Predeceased by her parents, Capt. Jack and Muriel Wells (nee Church), 2nd husband Lloyd, stepson Tom, stepson-in-law Glen, siblings Muriel, Evie, and Jim. Lovingly remembered by her son Wayne (Debra), Adrienne (Mark), sister-in-law Gay, stepdaughters, Lynne, Carol, and stepdaughter-in-law Chris, grandson Aaron (Kayla), step-grandchildren Colin (Danielle), Carly (Allen), Caitlin, Jennifer (Eric), Landon (Kim), Craig (Danielle), great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Dodie loved to work and started her working life at Naden before going to work for the Provincial Government where she spent the majority of her career. She embraced life and never turned down an opportunity to join a social committee. Over the years, Dodie was an active member of the Victoria Operatic Society and the Victoria Horseshoe Club. She loved dancing, music, theatre, camping, carpet bowling and their annual fishing derby. Known for her themed birthday parties, she enjoyed entertaining family and friends with magicians and ventriloquists. Dodie treasured time with family, friends, beloved pets and her grandchildren who lovingly called her Nana. She will be greatly missed.

For almost 3 years, Dodie was a resident of Sidney Care Home where she entertained the staff and residents with her sense of humor. The family is grateful for the love and care offered by the staff and management of Sidney Care Home.

    Adrienne, Wayne, Lynne and Carol & families. We were so sorry to hear of Dodie’s passing. She was a great friend and our camping and fishing derby adventures with both Dodie and Lloyd were some of the best memories. We’ve missed Dodie over the past few years but remember our visits and calls fondly as well as their Christmas Sing Alongs with so many of their family and friends. Both Dodie and Lloyd were integral parts of the Victoria Horseshoe Club as well, with the Father’s Day Tournament one of the most popular each year. Dave and I send our heartfelt sympathy as well as so many friends from the Greater Victoria Horseshoe Club.
