June 26, 1947 – January 13, 2019
Dora Will was born June 26, 1947, in Vulcan, Alberta, and passed away January 13, 2019. She is survived by her husband Gordon; son Ryan (Kelly); son Michael (Adrienne); daughter Erin (Patrick); and her very precious granddaughter Josephine. She will also be missed by her brothers John, Barry (Helen), and David; and her niece and nephews. Dora embraced everything life had to offer. She loved music and was known to burst into song without provocation. She was always open to new adventures, whether it was camping in the backcountry of Banff or trekking to see Machu Pichu. Dora had a voracious appetite for crossword puzzles and could often be found with a cat on her lap and a pencil in hand, working on two or three puzzles simultaneously. Dora found her passion and calling as a teacher. She possessed the unique skill of instilling in others a love of learning and encouraging them to pursue their dreams. Nothing filled her with more joy than learning of the accomplishments of her former students. A celebration of Dora’s life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2019, at the Strathmore Travelodge (350 Ridge Road, Strathmore). In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests you consider making a donation to your local food bank.
