Burford, Dorothy Irene (nee Pearson)

It is with heavy hearts - but music playing and wine glasses full - that we must convey the passing of our beloved Mother, Nannie, Gi Gi and friend to all, Dorothy Irene Burford. She passed very peacefully with her daughter by her side at Queen’s Village Retirement Home, London, on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at the age of 97 years. She’s up there in heaven dancing with her adoring husband, Cecil (Bob) Burford, her son Jim and finally reunited once again with her mother, Lenna. A day didn’t pass that she didn’t miss her. She will also be reunited with her brother Jim and her granddaughter Jessica.
