Cate, Dorothy Helen Yoast

Obituary

Dorothy Helen (Yoast) Cate died peacefully on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.  She was born in Fort Worth on October 29, 1922.

Dorothy was employed by Birdville Public Schools as a school secretary for 30 years.  An avid gardener, she garnered numerous awards for the beauty she created.

Dorothy was preceded in death by Leslie Wayne Cate, her husband of 42 years and her parents Maggie and Samuel Yoast. She is survived by son, Michael Cate and his wife Merrilee; daughter Sandra Cate Trostel; grandchildren Matthew Trostel and his wife Lynn; and Emilie Cate and her husband Frederic Charlebois.  A sister, Maxine Males, also survives.

The family wishes to express heartfelt appreciation to Linda McWilliams, longtime caregiver, and Janet Bjork, both of whom provided loving care over the last seven years.

Family and friends will honor Dorothy during a committal service at Chapel Garden Mausoleum on Saturday, June 28, at 3:30pm in Restland Memorial Park, 9220 Restland Road, Dallas.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or to either the Dallas Arboretum or Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

Please send family condolences and sign the guestbook on this website.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
