<div itemprop="description">Renate Gisela Dabbs , nee Grotefend, passed away on the morning of November 21, 2016, at the age of 92. Renate spent most of her professional career, as a Head Nurse of the Burn Unit at the Hamilton General Hospital, selflessly helping others in their time of need. Even though she retired 30 years ago, her reputation is remembered with fondness and respect by staff at the General Hospital. <br>During her retirement, she lived on her own terms and travelled the world. She was an adventurer, bon vivante, avid bridge and mahjong player, philanthropist, and seeker of knowledge and new experiences. <br>Predeceased by her husband, James Dabbs, and step daughter Carolyn Dabbs, she is survived by her sister Barbara Semple, her niece Christine Bailey ( Linden ), her grand niece Ashley ( Mark ), and her step son James Dabbs ( Anita ). <br>Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her full life will take place at a later date. <br>Many thanks to the many Doctors and Nurses at the Hamilton General Hospital for their support, kindness, and caring during the past weeks. <br>In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Hamilton General Hospital. <br></div>
