The family of Doreen ‘Dodie’ (née Moore) Stewart are saddened to announce the passing of their Mom, Dodie on Sunday, July 7th, 2024. Age 89 years. Beloved wife of the late Fred for 54 years.

Daughter of the late Ed and Emmeline Moore, of Dunchurch, Ontario. Much loved Mom to Alan (the late Marilyn); Faye Fontaine (Mark); and John. Dodie was a wonderful ‘Gramma’ to Mitch, Kyle, and Josh; and ‘Great Gramma’ to Lynkin and Ivy. Fondly remembered by Leona. Loving sister to Ollie (the late Bill), and the late Fred (Olive), Fanny (Wilf), Martin (Hilda), Pheobe (Wib), Vina ‘Vi’ (Harold), and Morley (Edythe). Sister-in-law to Billy Stewart (Sandy), and the late Ted (Phyllis), Lorna (Ray), and Frank (Shirley). Dodie cherished all of her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and her many friends.

When Fred retired in 1986, Dodie and Fred sold their beloved hobby farm in Kirby, Ontario, and moved to their cottage in Dunchurch, Ontario. Dodie was happiest there, next to her family home and life-long friends and family. In July, 2020, Dodie moved to Serenity Seniors Residence – she was comfortable there in her final little home.

Dodie’s family would like to thank Dr. Neary and the Serenity family, for their excellent care of Dodie.

Resting at the Logan Funeral Home, 81 James Street, Parry Sound, where family and friends will be received on Saturday, July 20th from 11:30 – 1:00 P.M.

Funeral Service will take place in the Logan Memorial Chapel on Saturday, July 20th at 1:00 P.M., followed by reception.

Cremation with private family interment at Fairholme Cemetery, Dunchurch, at a later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to Dunchurch United Church (donations by cheque only, please), or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.


Sincerest Condolences to All of My Aunt Dodie's Family at this most difficult time. May all of your Cherished Memories with her from over the years help you in your time of grief. My summer experiences for many, many years around the Stewart's were certainly memorable to say the least and I will cherish them forever. Rest in Peace Aunt Dodie.

So sorry to hear upon the passing of your mom. Such a wonderful lady. Often called to compliment on our decorating for Halloween or Christmas and sent a lovely note when mom passed. The kindness of those things stick in my mind. John kept us informed with updates. We send our condolences and will miss her.
Ed, Debbie, Ben and Jaclyn.

My condolences on the passing of your mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Dodie was such a special lady. She was so much fun to tease, because she could dish it right back to you in equal measure! Trading winning first prize on our chocolate cakes at the Dunchurch Fall Fair will always be a special memory to me, with each of us trying to sneak an early peek on judging day at who won each year and making a big fuss about it all. I will miss her very much.

Dodie was my first ‘partner’ as a volunteer at the Dunchurch Fair, and we made a great team for more than a decade. Well in her 80’s she prepared her entries for the fair, volunteered with the judging on Friday and sold 50:50 tickets throughout the Friday night and Saturday events. She will be missed by all of us who knew her.

So sorry to hear of Dodie’s passing. We miss her at Magnetawan Euchre. We still talk about a “Dodie Move”. Hugs to Ollie

Dodie was a special lady, who could give and take with anyone, a great community support to everything especially the fair. We will miss you!.
