Dorothy Isabel (Duncan) Tukham

Tukham, Dorothy Isabel (Duncan)

Passed away Dec 15th, 2013 surrounded by family. Born March 3rd, 1928 to Robert and Myrtle Duncan, mom was a native daughter of Ladysmith. She had one brother, Robert. Mom talked of many fine childhood memories spent with her grandparents, Richard and Ellen Ivey, on their farm.

She met the love of her life, Jack, while working in the Ladysmith pay office of Comox Logging. Dorothy’s love of the outdoors was very evident with camping, fishing, mushroom and salal picking. Mom always cherished the time she spent in her yard and gardens.

Predeceased by Jack in January 2009, mom is survived by her children and their families. Son Rob (Kate), daughter Deb (Harold Rutti), son Fred (Jan); grandchildren Jen, Pat, Bryan (Joanna), Dan; great grandchildren Hannah and Carson.
