Jul 15, 1929 - Mar 31, 2021
There will be a private family graveside service.
It is with profound sadness that our family announces the passing of Dorothy Mae Boomer, on March 31st, 2021.Dorothy was our loving and devoted Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Aunt, Sister-in-law, Cousin, and friend to all whose lives she touched.
Dorothy was born on July 15th, 1929, in Red Deer, Alberta and was raised in the Shady Nook district. She loved and connected with her Shady Nook family all these years.
It was in Red Deer that Mom met the love of her life, Harry Rae Boomer, and they danced lovingly together for 64 years, until Harry’s passing in Feb 2014.
Mom was passionate about serving for the Royal Canadian Legion, to honor her Father’s commitment in the Second World War. She was an honorary member and co-founder of the Ladies Auxiliary Branch and chosen Silver Cross Mother. Dorothy was also an honorary member of the Moose Lodge in Red Deer, and she poured her heart into these organizations.
Her friends called her “Dot”, and she LOVED to garden. Dot loved watching baseball and travelling to games with her sister. She also played and enjoyed curling, as well as cheering loudly for her Oilers.
She was predeceased by her loving parents, Hurley Victor Lutz (Pete) and Vivia Madge (Nee Plummer), her fireball sister, Iva Evangeline Hemstreet (Rusty), and brother-in-law Douglas Brian Hemstreet.
Dorothy leaves behind her, two children; son Leonard (Valerie), daughter Donna (Peter), grandchildren; Mitch (Kristin) Boomer, Lisa Boomer (Cameron), Keir Hyde (Mandy) and 6 beautiful great- grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, 2 brothers-in-law, 1 sister-in-law, cousins, and many friends.
Dorothy was an inspiration to many. She lived a full life and believed in having fun.
Thank you to all who showed kindness to Mom at Revera Inglewood, Bremner Community Health Centre and Red Deer hospital. Thanks to all her dear family and friends for the outpouring of love for her.
We will all miss you Mom and love you forever.

My sympathy to all the family. Dot was a great gal. Walter and I used to enjoy the dances with your mom and dad and we always enjoyed visiting them. A great couple!
Dot was a truly wonderful aunt, & I loved her dearly. I already am missing my visits & telephone conversations with her.
I know, Len, Donna, & all others in the family, that her absence will leave a hole in our hearts forever. However, Dot loved to tell or hear a story & laugh. Let’s all do this, whether apart or together. Happy memories!
She will be deeply missed by all, she gave to everything she had, that she was involved in especially to our ladies auxiliary, as we her sisters and fellow members will cherish her helpfulness and willing ness to teach us as she always gave without reservation. I personally will miss her laughing and joking we all did in the kitchen. As well as her lemon bisque treats and cream cheese deserts, she made they where delish. Thank-you Dot from the bottom of my heart and the Ladies Auxiliary for all your help and guidance for these past few years and many previous years that you served our auxiliary.You will and are deeply missed and loved by all who met you.
Dorothy is such a inspiration. In the short time I spent with her she told me all about her life, about her husband, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. About Boomer Road in sylvan Lake, her days at Dentooms green house and her own green house on the farm. I couldn’t help but ask for advice on my own garden and flowers after knowing this!
Dot was so full of spunk and I could tell she lived a full and meaningful life. In the short time I knew her she made such a mark in my heart.
Dorothy, thank you for crossing my path and filling my heart with Joy.
