Dorothy Van Sickler McWhorter

Dorothy Van Sickler McWhorter passed away on November 28, 2016. She was born May 21, 1930, in Toronto, Ontario, the daughter of Jean and James Van Sickler. In the early 50’s, Dorothy came to the United States to work as a nurse. She married the Rev. Clifford McWhorter in 1957. Dorothy was very talented, and as a skilled Scottish Sword Dancer, she competed in various pageants, in one of which she was crowned Miss Toronto. She loved the bagpipes and took seriously her profession as a nurse.

Dorothy is survived by: her husband, Clifford McWhorter, two sons, Marshall and Blake, her sister, Joy Hughes of Toronto, Canada; eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. She was laid to rest in West Tennessee Veterans Cemetery. Memorials may be made to St. John Orthodox Church at 1663 Tutwiler Avenue, Memphis, TN 38107. Our condolences to the McWhorter family.
