<div itemprop="description">Dorothy (Dode) McKenny <br>8 September 1924 to 29 December 2018 <br> <br>Dode passed away peacefully at Perley Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre (Ottawa) five months following the loss of Claude, her devoted husband of 75 years. Dode leaves her beloved children, Jane (Garry) Drew of Parham, Jim (Christine Johnson) of Toronto and David of Ottawa, and was proud grandmother to Jennifer Drew (Andrew Jones), David Drew (deceased), Mia McKenny (deceased) (Peter Valentine) and Jason McKenny. She will be dearly missed by her adoring great grandchildren, Wills and Edie Jones (Ottawa) and Emma and Lily Valentine (Australia). Dode was predeceased by her three sisters, Kathleen (Alex Stewart) Catherine (James Fletcher) and Margaret (Lou Campanaro). Born and raised in Ottawa, Dode was a life long resident of Old Ottawa East, spending her childhood on Glenora Avenue, and her married life on Elliot Avenue, raising their family, and living comfortably until moving to the Perley Rideau in the fall of 2016. Dode was devoted to family and friends always welcoming visitors to 30 Elliott. She loved to laugh and enjoyed hearing stories about life experiences and sporting events (especially hockey). Her humour, and kindness will be forever cherished by all who knew and loved her. The McKenny family extends sincere appreciation to the staff at the Perley Rideau Veteran’s Health Care Centre for their outstanding care of our Dode. Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of life will be held later in the spring, when the roses she so dearly loved, begin to bloom. <br></div>
