DYER, Violet “Doreen” (nee Hopper)



July 19th, 1933 - Saturday, March 11th, 2023

Passed away peacefully at Langstaff Square Care Community in Richmond Hill on March 11th, 2023 in her 90th year.

Loving wife of the late Robert Dyer. The love of her life and best friend.

Beloved mother of Anita (Joe Mazzara), Rob (Lisa), and Leslie (Dan Light).

Infinitely proud grandmother of Lindsay, Brittany, Josephine and Alexandra.

Dear sister of Harold (Barb)and Bill (Kay) Hopper.

Loved and missed by brother-in-law Jim Dyer and his wife June and sister-in-law Anne Reilly.

Doreen lived a busy and active life. She enjoyed travel with friends, bowling and a variety of various social activities and clubs. Most of all she enjoyed the time she spent with her family proudly participating in her grandchildren's events and achievements. She was always willing to be the voice of reason to someone in distress, a helping hand to someone in need and just an ear for listening or a shoulder to cry upon. Doreen will be remembered as a strong, caring, fun loving woman who was loved by all that met her. Loved by no one more than her children and their families.

Visitation will take place at Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home (157 Main Street South, Newmarket) on Tuesday, March 14th from 6 PM – 9 PM. A private family interment will take place at a later date.

If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Ontario, or to an animal shelter or rescue of your choice.
