Pickett, Dorothy Anne (nee Bullen)-
May 31, 1934 (Kimberly BC)- March 19, 2022 (Brantford ON)
Daughter of Laurence and Dorothy Bullen, Dorothy was a faithful wife and mother who made family her vocation. After earning her BA at Victoria College, she was a "Wellesley Girl" but left nursing to marry Dr. Charles Pickett. They raised a family of six on their farm in St. George, where the thriving of their children, music, the old family cottage Koshlong Lake and Holy Trinity Anglican Church were at the centre of life.
