Dorothy Davies-Flindall, a former General Synod prolocutor, recipient of the Anglican Award of Merit and Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) chair who contributed to the life of the national church for more than 20 years, has died at the age of 86.
Davies-Flindall served as prolocutor of General Synod from 2001 to 2004. She chaired the committee (now board) of PWRDF and served on the Partners in Mission Committee, the Communications and Information Resources Committee, and the Council of General Synod. She received the Anglican Award of Merit in 2007.
She was also an active volunteer with the Loyalist College Foundation and Quinte Hospice in Belleville, Ont. She organized the group Quinte Grannies for Africa and was an active member of St. Thomas’ Anglican Church, Belleville, in the diocese of Ontario.
Davies-Flindall was director at Trenton Public Library for 24 years. Despite this full-time career, she “still managed to spend her spare time continuously helping others,” her obituary notes.
“The lives of those that she touched extend around the world through her activities in charitable organizations, church and Synod.”
She is survived by her husband the Rev. John Flindall, her three sons, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
To commemorate Davies-Flindall’s life, donations can be made to St. Thomas’, PWRDF, Quinte Grannies for Africa or the Loyalist College Foundation.
A memorial service for her life took place at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church on Oct. 19.
