Dorothy Eleanor Grant

It is with great sadness that we announce that Dorothy Eleanor Grant passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Chatham Kent Health Alliance on September 28, 2021, at the age of 90.

Born in Chatham Dorothy was the daughter of Lloyd and Emily Huff and loving wife of 61 years of predeceased Allen Grant.

Dorothy will be greatly missed by her daughter, Christine (John) Dengel and her grandchildren Hilary (Danny) Choi and Jonathan (Stacie) Dengel.  She was a very special and proud great grandmother to Daniel Choi, Daphne Dengel and Winnie Dengel.  Nothing gave her more joy than family time.

Survived by her sisters, Marian Herr,  Alice (Mike) Hewson, and Margaret (Gord) Perry and brother-in-law, Ralph Gilbert.  Predeceased by her sisters Betty Murray and Barb Gilbert and brothers-in-law Don Murray and Ben Herr.  Dorothy will also be fondly remembered by Allen’s siblings and so many delightful nieces and nephews and other extended family members.

Dorothy was a traditional Homemaker.  She could sew and knit and her daughter, Chris, was the luckiest recipient of these talents, enjoying many beautiful pieces of clothing that they designed together.

Being from a big family, large gatherings are a frequent and all family members have their special recipes for dishes that are always anticipated.  Dorothy was infamous for her apple pie and we requested it often.

Dorothy enjoyed golf and was an active member of Maple City Country Club for 40 years.  She and Allen also enjoyed bowling in their younger years when they resided in Windsor.  

Dorothy was a wonderful Mother and once back in Chatham after Allen’s retirement took on her role as “The Nana” with great joy and loved watching and driving Hilary and Jonathan to activities to help their busy parents.  Time spent with family sharing in their sports, activities and daily life brought Dorothy her greatest joy.  In her latter years Dorothy enjoyed being out and about with family and friends and watching her great grandchildren play.  

At this time the family is planning a private online celebration and will plan a Celebration of Life for family and friends at a safer time.  

Our family would like to express our deepest thanks to Dr Wolting and the staff of Chatham Kent Health Alliance, especially the 4th Floor Continuing Care Unit, for their expertise, compassion, and support over the last few weeks.  We would also like to thank the caring staff of Chatham Kent Retirement Residence for all they have done for Dorothy since she made this wonderful venue her home in January of 2020.

  1. Dengel Family,

    The Waddick Family has had the pleasure of being neighbours to the Dengel Family for 35 years. Over that time we have enjoyed both Dorthy and also Al’s company countless times. Dorthy was always a sweetheart and loved watching her wonderful grandchildren and great grandchildren grow. You can now join Al again for a heavenly round at the links, maybe even make Dad part of your group.
