We are very sad to announce the very sudden, but peaceful passing of Dorothy (Esslemont) aged 80 years, at ARI on Sunday November 12, 2023. Beloved and cherished wife of the late Patrick, dearly loved and loving mam of Peter and Patricia, dearest mother-in-law, very proud, devoted and adored grandma and nana and very good friend to all who knew her. A celebration for Dorothy’s life will take place on Monday November 20 at 11am from Alexander Buchan & Son Funeral Chapel, Denmark Street, Fraserburgh to which all family and friends are warmly invited, there after private. At Dorothy’s request please wear a splash of the colour purple. Family flowers only please, but donations may be given in lieu, if so desired at chapel door in aid of The Cats Protection League. Dearly loved, sadly missed.
