Shirley Smith

Shirley Ann (Ball) Smith, beloved wife of the late Donald George Smith, passed away on July 27th, 2023 at Hospice House Fredericton, with her family by her side. Born on May 11, 1938, in Rusagonis, NB, Shirley was the daughter of the late Walter Hazen Ball and Minnie Mae (Artes). Moving to Harvey after her husband’s passing in 2012 to be closer to her children, Shirley had spent the majority of her life in Fredericton Junction.

As a dedicated teacher, Shirley’s career spanned many decades, generations, and local schools. Following her retirement, she and Don cherished spending quality time at their cottage on Yoho Lake. An ardent armchair sports fan, Shirley loved cheering on her beloved Toronto Blue Jays and watching curling.

Maintaining her private nature, Shirley expressed her wish for her passing to be handled in the same manner. Therefore, there will be no public visitation or funeral service held.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Dr. Daniel Fletcher of Harvey for his unwavering care and support to Shirley and her family. A special thank you is also extended to Hospice House for their compassionate care during Shirley’s final days. In memory of Shirley, donations can be made to Hospice Fredericton or an animal charity of your choice. Arrangements are being conducted by Sunbury Funeral Home.

The family invites condolences at sunburyfuneralhome.com.
