Dorothy Ella Pratt

April 26, 1943 — January 9, 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom Dorothy “Dottie” Ella (Mackenzie) Pratt on Monday, January 9th, 2023 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by family. Mom was born and raised in Sydney. The daughter of the late Philip and Hazel (Drover) Mackenzie.


Our mom was the most kind and generous person. Always wanting to please everyone. She was the friendliest person you’ll ever meet. She would talk to anyone and always leave them laughing with the biggest smile on their face. She was the happiest when she was helping others. Never wanted to be a burden to anyone. She was a proud mother and grandmother. She loved everyone, a true angel.


Besides both of her parents, Dorothy was predeceased by sisters Phyllis (Mackenzie) Pearce and Shirley (Mackenzie) Washbrooke as well as her husband Tom Pratt.


Dorothy is survived by special brother David, Sydney, Wayne (Trish), Sydney, and sister Darlene (Kenny), Sydney. Loving daughter Andrea (Jamie), Sydney, and sons Tom (Cassie), Halifax, and Philip (Elizabeth), Newfoundland. She is also survived by her grandchildren Perry, Emily, Josh, Mitchel, McKenzie, Briar, Brady and great grandchild Brody.


Dottie will be sadly and deeply missed by all who loved her. Rest in peace our dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother and wife. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the kidney foundation in memory of Dorothy.
