Perfetti, Dorothy Elinor

September 24, 1928 – February 19, 2021
at the age of 92 years

It is with great sadness that the family of Dorothy Elinor Perfetti announces her passing on Friday, February 19, 2021, at the age of 92, after a month long stay in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC where she suffered a heart attack and a stroke.

Dorothy was born to Silas and Gladys Short, in Pibroch, Alberta, on September 24, 1928. 

She was living independently at Piccadilly Terrace in Salmon Arm.

Dorothy was predeceased by her son Kevin Perfetti, her husband Victor Werboweski and son-in-law Jim Miller.

Dorothy will be lovingly remembered by her children: Susan Clarke (Claude), Sharon Sawatzky (Dennis), Darrell Perfetti and Sharleen Miller, her six grandchildren: Carley, Ryan (LaTasha), Stephen, Marcus (Laura), Jared (Desiree) Spencer (Michelle) and her seven great grandchildren: Avery, Meghan, Avery, Peyton, Ayvah, Ayris and Wyatt. Many other family members along with her extended family, The Dixons, share in our grief.  

Mom enjoyed spending time with her family, growing a flower garden, her hummingbirds, sewing, knitting, doing paper tole and reading.  She also looked forward to the coffee group on the weekends by which she will be greatly missed.  Mom volunteered as President of the Ladies Auxiliary at our local Salmon Arm Legion Branch 62, where she was a lifetime member.

We give Special Thanks to the nursing staff and the doctors who were involved with giving Mom such wonderful care in her last days.

Due to COVID there will not be a Celebration of Life at this time. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in her name to: Salmon Arm Legion, Branch 62, The Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they
comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23

Ktenas, Sofia

May 7, 1957 – February 19, 2021
at the age of 63 years

Sof, Sofa, Sophie, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend, and Confidant.  She would love that this thing we are writing to end as part of a song!  

Sof started life in London, ON and hit many Canadian hot spots since, including her last home in Salmon Arm, BC.  Sofie made everywhere her home, but loved, loved, loved Salmon Arm with its many mountains and lakes.  She was known to hit the high spots and take in the views!

Sofie left her body behind on Friday, February 19, 2021 so she is now free to fly in those mountains and skim the tops of the trees and lakes.

Loved and missed by her beloved daughter Siobhan Theodora and son Liam McGarry. Sofia, the loving daughter of Dora Ktenas, cherished sister of Mary (Weldon Flemming), Pete Stone, Michael and Theodore.  She was predeceased by her father Michael Ktenas Sr.  While we can’t list all of her friends here as that would fill a book; you all know how much she cared for you and would wish you to celebrate her in your own special way.  

Fly Free Sofie!
