Born November 5, 1924 at the Portage Hospital, Dora grew up in the Edrans area and received her education at Deer Range School, after which she worked in the area. On July 3, 1945, at Edrans, she married Kenneth Smith. Dora and her husband settled on a farm in the Edrans District, where they farmed for many years and where Dora continued to reside.
Dora was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Earl Smith; parents William & Agatha McCullough, Annie Martens; brother Cecil McCullough; son in law Alfred Black, grandson Randy Black and great grandson Zachary Smith. She is survived by her brother Norman (Mary) McCullough; sisters Lilla Wright, Marina Pederson and Betty (Bill) McLaren; sons Terry (Donna) Smith, Kelvin (Eileen) Smith, Colin (Susan) Smith, Donna Black (Jack Falk) and Ruth Smith. She enjoyed many grandchildren, great grandchildren and step grandchildren.
Dora’s life centered around her family, with granddaughter Raechel being a part of her life as Raechel became like daughter to her and she very much enjoyed Raechel’s baby days to her present days of phone calls to Granny.
Dora always enjoyed baking, and everyone was welcome to her household for a tea or coffee and always something to eat. She enjoyed sewing and always looked forward to her craft sales to sell her garments and to meet new acquaintances.
Dora lived in her own home in Neepawa until April 10, 2020 when she had a fall and went to the Hospital and then to Third Crossing Manor and left us to be with Ken, July 2, 2020, one day before what would have been their 75th wedding anniversary on July 3rd.
Mom, from all of us family, may you rest in peace and be with Dad for happy times!
