Dorval Alice Smith passed away at the age of 82 on Sunday, March 19, 2023 at home in Pointe St. Charles with her loved ones by her side.
Dorval, also known as Dora to many, was born to George and Rita Smith on May 15th, 1940, in Shigawake on the beautiful Gaspé coast of Quebec that she loved to revisit as often as possible.
Dorval was a devoted mother, treasured sister, beloved aunt, and a caring friend and confidant. Her greatest role in life, however, was that of a proud and adoring grandmother and great-grandmother. There is no doubt that Dorval found no greater fulfillment in life than in watching those she loved so very deeply find joy and happiness, and in getting the opportunity to share in those special moments. Some of the simplest of moments, be they watching tv shows alongside Dorval, watching her complete her word search puzzles, or getting to share in her favorite fruit snacks are memories her loved ones will hold dear forever, for they were the little things that made Dorval so incredibly happy.
Dorval is survived by her four loving daughters, Evelyn, Gina (David), Lynn and Cherry; her cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Christopher (Brittanie), Justin (Melannie), Ryan (Jalyn), Corey, Skylar, Hunter, Cody, Cohen, Connor, Landon, Lincoln, and Sophia; her sister and best friend Celia and numerous nieces and nephews.
Dorval was preceded in death by her parents, her son Sydney, her brothers Garnet, Herby, Embert, Donald and Robert and her sisters Lucy, Vivian, Agnes, and Geraldine.
Per Dorval’s wishes, there will be no services held. In lieu of flowers or donations, Dorval’s family asks that you celebrate her life and honor her memory by spending time with your loved ones, for she always believed there was no greater time spent in life.

I so miss the slow days of long ago, where I would see Dora sitting at the kitchen table by the window and we would all see each other often. Times move on huh? I really really loved you all so dearly. Jesus has her now. May He send you His peace that surpasses all understanding. Philippians 4:6
Send your condolences.
Thinking of you all during this very sad time, Rest In Peace Dorval, Alice Smith.
