Dorothy Elizabeth "Dot" Chisholm, of Southside Harbour, passed away peacefully on December 4, 2021, just six months after celebrating her 100th birthday, in Green Meadows Community Residence for Seniors, North Grant, her home for the past three and a half years.

Dot graduated from Mabou Convent then attended Normal College in Truro graduating with her teaching certificate. She taught for over 30 years and was well respected by her peers, students and families alike.
Dot was a woman of strong faith; many novenas were said for her family. She was inquisitive and had a keen interest in the people around her and was very knowledgeable of the genealogy of many of those people. She enjoyed a good game of cards and a hot cup of tea.
The family would like to thank the staff at Green Meadows for the care she received while a resident.
