Predeceased by her husband Don in March 1971 and her son Jerry in May 1998. Her sister Doreen and brothers Jack, Dan, and Fred.
She is survived and will be dearly missed by her daughter Ann Bastien, grandchildren Ferne Bastien, Peter Ladoucuer, Bill Westmacott (Tammy) and great grandchildren Bethany, Jana and Rebecca. Brother Jerry and his wife Bea. Several nieces and nephews, all of the Vancouver area.
Lottie was born in Victoria. The family moved to Telegraph Creek with their parents Harry and Fannie (Sanders) Dodd. Harry was a Government Agent. Lottie remembered many happy visits to Stewart, fun evenings playing bridge, crib and all card games with all ages. She met Don McDevitt there and they were married in Telegraph Creek. They lived in the Peace River area and Greenwood, B.C. where Don taught school. They moved to Vancouver during the War, lived at Deep Cove and Don worked in the ship-yards. They moved to Cortez Island in 1945 where Don taught school for many years. Lottie loved Cortez where they formed many close friendships and became involved in the community clubs and organizations. She moved to Campbell River on Sept. 30, 1986 so it would be easier for her children to visit her.
Special thank you to Dr. J. Walker, nurses and care givers in the community and Campbell River Hospital for years of wonderful care. Also to Dr. G. Tancon, nurses, care givers and activity staff at Comox ECU for their wonderful care and patience that made her last four months there a happy place for her.
