It is with sadness that the family of Dorothy Olivet Hughes announces her passing on October 20, 2021 at Neill Hall. Born in Coles Island, NB, on April 11, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Millidge and Olive (Clark) Ryder.
Dorothy is survived by her husband Gordon Edward Hughes; sons Brian Ryder, Terry and Roger Leet; daughter Joyce Leet (Larry Holleran); step-daughters Karen Hughes and Christine Gallant (Collin); grandchildren Michael Leet, Brandon Leet-MacFarlane; great grandchildren Aiden Leet, Karley Leet and Mason MacFarlane, as well as several cousins.
In addition to her parents, Dorothy was predeceased by her first husband Harry Leet; step-son Greg Hughes, and grandchild Devon DeAnglis.
A special thank you to the amazing staff of Frederick Hall and Neill Hall for the care they have given Dorothy.
