Vale Dorothy Nellie Coker 1931 – 2017



Suddenly in hospital 1st February 3rd 2017.
Dorothy commenced calligraphy classes at Jannali Community College in 2003 and soon after joined CSS.  Dorothy was a committee member (Library) until her passing.  Dorothy began her professional life as a nurse at St George hospital.  Dorothy and her husband Ted spent the early years of their marriage in PNG, where their three children were born. The family returned to Jannali in November 1957 and sometime later Dorothy was widowed.

Dorothy resumed her nursing career, undertaking permanent night duty and studied to achieve several nursing certificates.  She was later appointed Assistant Director of Nursing at St George Hospital, and continued her lifelong support of the Nursing Association.  Dorothy was also a valued member and several years ago was installed as Grand Matron of the Eastern Star Association.

Dorothy outlived her son Donald (Dec 2010 ) and second husband Ted (Dec 2011 ). She is survived by her daughter Gwen, son Raymond and their families.

She was a very loyal member of CSS, participating in as many workshops and exhibitions as possible. Her bright eyed smile will be greatly missed. RIP Dorothy.
