QUANT, Dorothy May (nee Grover)

Born on September 4, 1924, passed away peacefully at the age of 95, on August 14, 2020 at Wellington Terrace Long Term Care in Fergus, where she lived for the past 4 years under excellent care. She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years; Donald Quant of Guelph.

Dorothy grew up in London, Ontario; the daughter of Clara and Norman Ross Grover along with her older brother Frank and younger sisters Betty and Marion. At the end of grade 8, she left school to work and help support her family. At the age of 18 Dorothy attended the Dominion Business College in Toronto and completed all four years of high school in one year. She then attended the Ontario Pentecostal Bible College. In 1952, Dorothy graduated from Guelph General Hospital’s nursing program where she later taught after earning her Nursing Education Diploma from Western University in 1958.

A year after meeting Don, Dorothy left teaching and married in 1962 in Guelph. She returned to work in 1973 as a mobile nurse for MDS doing medical interviews for insurance companies and retired in 1988. Dorothy enjoyed camping, fishing, canoeing, gardening, various crafts, traveling and having pets.
