Dorothy HILTON (nee McQuarrie)
April 2, 1942 to September 19, 2020

After valiantly fighting an aggressive cancer for the past 6 weeks, it is both with sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy in her home in Ingersoll, Ontario, on Saturday, September 19, 2020, with her family by her side, and with Joy that the Lord quickly took her away from the pain to be with her saviour.

Dorothy is survived by her husband of 57 years, Ted Hilton. She was the dear mother of their daughter Dawn (McCleave) of Wellesley, Ontario, and their son, Gord Hilton of Milton Ontario. Deeply loved by their son-in-law Andrew McCleave, their daughter-in-law, Deborah Hilton (nee Strutt), and their granddaughters Kirsten (and Tyler) Rathwell (nee McCleave) of Kitchener, Ontario, Holly McCleave of Wellesley, Tori
Hilton, Emily Hilton and Rachel Hilton all of Milton. Dorothy is also survived by her brother Donald McQuarrie, and sisters Barbara Thomas, Marion Sandeson and Greta Hard all in Nova Scotia, and Shirley Dupuis (Dave), of Barrie, Ontario. She will also be profoundly missed by her sister-in-law Gladys (McQuarrie), and her brother-in-law, Bob Hard, as well as sister-in-law, Peggy Bendell (Ted) and brother-in-law Bruce MacKinnon (Carol), plus many
nieces, nephews, friends and other relatives.

Relatives and friends may call at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home, 246 Thames St. S.,Ingersoll, Ontario, on Wednesday, September 23rd between 6:00pm and 8:00pm, and on Thursday, September 24th, between 9:30am and 10:45am.

At the service my mind was thinking of what I would say if I had the opportunity to address the gathering.  I was thinking - -
there is no one in this room who has known Ted Hilton as long as I have.  I have been thinking of all the good times, hard times, and in between times we have been there for each other.

In fact, my first big moment in life was when my parents brought me home from Salvation Army Grace Hospital in Toronto, Ted was there.

We rode our bicycles all over the city, watching 401 highway get built up as a 4 lane road, baseball in a rough patch of tall grass with other kids, Sunday school at Fairbank Baptist.  We were there for each other.  At least until Ted's family moved away but there were the odd letters back and forth.  In a way, we were still there.

Ted moved back to Toronto and brought his bride to be with him. When it was time for Ted and Dorothy to get married I was there as best man. 

Dorothy was quiet and reserved, quite the lady.  She did her best for me by setting up a blind date with the lovely Ann Cooper, who moved away a short time later.  How different my life might have been had Dorothy's friend Ann stayed in Toronto.

In spring 1966, it was my turn to get married and Ted was there. It's a big city, we did not get together often, but he was there.

In summer of 2011, my Mary passed and Ted was there.

Fifty years after their marriage, at Ted and Dorothy's anniversary party  I was there .

Now, it's seven years later, and I am with Ted again. We've shared many happy and sad moments over the years. A time like this, today, makes a person think, surely at the final big moment in our lives, only one of us will be there. But that's the way it is supposed to be.  We are here, we live our lives as best we can.  We try to do the right things.  We try to set an example for our children.  And then we are gone. But we are not forgotten.

Godspeed Dorothy.

Oh dear Ted and family, we are just so sad for the emptiness you all feel right now. We loved Dorothy. We will always feel so blessed that you honored us by joining in on our 50th anniversary celebration. We will never quite get over that amazing surprise! And I (Cathy) will always treasure that Birthday phone call this past June. We cherish your friendship and thank God for allowing our life paths to cross at Community of Hope church. May The Comforter be so very close to you all right now as He reassures you that Dorothy is 'safe'. May memories of fun times be in the front of your hearts and minds. And may we all be ever grateful for the Sacrifice of our Lord Jesus that will make it possible for all of us to see our Dorothy once again.
You are Loved!
Rod and Cathy Murphree

We are so sorry to hear that Dorothy has passed Ted. Although we weren't neighbours for all that long, we really enjoyed the time that we spent with both of you. Dorothy was a lovely woman. Sending our deepest condolences and a big hug.
