ELIZABETH ANNE (BETTY) DOROTICH (nee SCARLETT)

Elizabeth Anne (Betty) Dorotich

(née Scarlett)18 December 1931 – 23 June 2016. Betty died peacefully in Penticton at Village-by-the-Station,surrounded by her family. Born in Calgary, educated at McGill University in Montreal and at the University of Edinburgh, Betty loved horses, skiing, mountain treks, and travel. After touring in France, Germany, Egypt, and Britain,she returned to Canada and met Daniel Dorotich. Married in Montreal, Betty and Danny also lived in Vancouver, and Saskatoon, where Betty earned a Master’s degree in Education and then taught at the University of Saskatchewan before retiring to Summerland in the early 1990s. She is lovingly remembered by her husband Danny,children Michael (Maureen née Krol), Andrea (Michael Ward), Paul (Céline Orieux), and four grandchildren (Nastassja, Danielle, Stéphane, Rachel). Betty’s love of nature and the joy it brought shone through above all else. She held dear all her animals. Country rambles were adventures in what could be seen: sparkling water, a rainbow spanning the sky, sunshine on mountain tops. Betty’s legacy as a teacher and outdoor enthusiast echoes across Canada, and she will ever be held dear by all who knew her. The Dorotich Family appreciates the staff of the Good Samaritan Society Village-by-the-Station for their loving kindness and care of Betty.
