Dorothy Irene Percival passed away on May 6, 2015 at age 86. She was born April 1, 1929 in Red Deer, Alberta. Dorothy lived most of her early years in Calgary and attended Prairie Bible Institute 1953-1957. She loved God with all her heart and faithfully served him for 39 years in northern Brazil. Life along the Amazon was primitive but also adventuresome and rewarding. The family of her deceased brother loved her stories of life in Brazil when she was back in Canada for visits. She was a prolific letter writer which allowed her to keep contact with many friends. At age 70, Dorothy returned to Three Hills. She made new friends, taught children, attended prayer groups, helped others, and kept contact with distant friends. Dorothy left an example worthy to be followed. She had a sense of humour that often brought smiles. She lived simply and was content. She was quick to express appreciation and faithfully prayed for many.Dorothy will be missed by her family and friends around the world.A celebration of Dorothy's life took place on May 12.
