Dorothy Elizabeth Lee (nee Streeter)

April 4, 1937 to June 26, 2024


Dorothy Elizabeth Lee, 87, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, at the Health Science Complex in St. Johns, NL. Born on April 4, 1937, in Halifax, NS, to Sarah (Baker) and Henry Streeter, Dorothy, affectionately known as “Dot,” held many cherished roles in her life: wife, mother, nanny, GG, sister, and “dodo.”

On June 29, 1957, Dorothy married Robert (Bob) in Halifax, NS, beginning a lifelong journey of love and companionship. She spent several years working for Canada Post, where her exceptional ability to connect with people left a lasting impact on everyone she met.

Dorothy’s talents extended beyond her professional life. She was a gifted baker, and her recipes have been treasured and passed down through generations. However, the most important thing to Dorothy was being surrounded by her loving family.

She is survived by her devoted husband Robert and their five children: Derrick, Vivian (William), Judy (Rodger), Susan (Francis), and Mary. Dorothy’s legacy also lives on through her ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Family, friends, and all whose lives Dorothy touched are invited to a service St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Goulds on Tuesday, July 2, at 2 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.



2:00pm, Tuesday July 2nd

St. Paul's Anglican Church, Goulds

Condolences to her family

The world is a lesser place without Dot in it. She was (and still is) one of the kindest, most devoted, and selfless person I will ever have the fortune to meet. Family was not just a word to Dot, it was here whole being. Bob, I will truly miss the time I spent with you and Dot over the years, I can’t imagine the loss you must be feeling – I am so sorry. With any luck when you all meet again, Dot will be waiting with a fresh loaf of bread and that infectious smile of hers – welcoming you all for a scoff!

Our deepest condolences to the Lee family on their loss of Dot. She was a one of a kind person. I remember her fondly from her work at Canada Post. Also from her time on Donavans Lane. Hopefully you can keep her memories alive in your heart and she’ll always be close.

Frank Noonan, on behalf of the Noonan family.
