Obituary for Dorothy Fairley Clarkson Bergstrom (Kennedy)

BERGSTROM, Dorothy Fairley Clarkson
1924 ~ 2019

Dorothy was born in Calgary, Alberta to William and Eliza Kennedy in 1924 and passed away on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at the age of 95 years. She was a lifelong member of First Baptist Church. (When she passed and I informed the Church, I told the pastor that she had been with the church almost since the first stone was laid. I then said I was exaggerating; he replied, “Yes, but not by much.”).

She was actively involved with Christian Girls in Training (CGIT) and the Jean Gordon Group for many years. She loved butterflies; her house and rooms were always decorated with mounted butterflies.

Dorothy will be lovingly remembered by her son, Stephen Bergstrom; several nieces and nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, William and Eliza Margaret Kennedy; brother, Doug Kennedy; sister, Joyce Marino and her husband, Rudolph Bergstrom.
