Gashi enjoyed travelling, sewing, pow wows, bingo, cooking, baking, camping, spending time with family, game nights, word search, crafts, and retail therapy.
Gashi was full of laughter, had a smile that could light up a room, was willing to put family first, and had an adventurous spirit.Gashi fulfilled her dream of going to Greece, a dream she had since she was a small child seeing the planes in the sky.
Gashi loved animals. She has joined her beloved pets Staf-ba and Pikacho-ba. Gashi worked at Canada Post for over 33 years. A job she secured from a part time Christmas job.
Gashi would help many people during their visits to Toronto by offering a meal, or bed to sleep upon.
Gashi went to Lakehead University for 13 years in the Native Language Instructors Program, as well as working towards her General Education diploma at N’swakamok.
Dorothy is loved by many and will forever be missed.
