Obituary of Ethel May Smith

SMITH, Ethel May~ 93, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 29, 2024, in the QEII Veterans Memorial,  Camp Hill Hospital. Born in Sambro, she was the second oldest daughter of the late Simeon and Stella (Hart) Smith.

She is survived by her sons Robert (Delores), McKay Section, Victor (Julia), and Ardoise; sisters, Lois, Spryfield, and Bessie, Ohio; brother, William, Sambro; grandsons, Robert Smith (Caleidgh), Hammonds Plains, Justin Smith, Bedford; granddaughter, Vanessa (Mark)Lichtensteiger, Ohio; many great and grand nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband Harold (Jim); son Michael; sisters, Gladys Nickerson and Mary Smith; brothers, Cecil and Cillford Smith.

Mom loved to be social, chatting with her friends in her residence at Captain William Spry Lodge; she enjoyed dancing, bowling, darts, playing cards, and walking with her friends when she lived in Sambro and later in years with her sister Lois around Halifax and events like the buskers downtown. She was an active member of the Spryfield Legion. Always ready to give her opinion on world events, chances are she could have solved many of their problems, I’m sure. She was a real go-getter and never wanted to stop moving. She will be greatly missed by all who know her.

The family would like to express special thanks over the years to all the doctors, nurses and staff of the QEII and Camp Hill 3 East.

Arrangements and cremation have been entrusted to J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd., 149 Herring Cove Road, Halifax. In keeping with Mom’s wishes, there will be no visitation or service. Interment will take place at a later date. Donations in her memory may be made to the Canadian Lung Association or a charity of one’s choice.
