She was a long-time member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 70 in New Hampshire and enjoyed her time serving as chaplain. An avid genealogist, Dorothy found great joy in researching her lineage back to the 1620 voyage of the Mayflower. In 1997, she became a proud and active member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in New Hampshire, having proven her bloodline ancestry as a tenth-generation descendant from Mayflower passenger Degory Priest. Dorothy was the wife of the late James A. Fitzgerald and the late Donald P. Smith. She was the loving mother of Marjorie E. Godfrey and her husband, James, of Holbrook, MA, and the late Donald P. Smith, Jr. She leaves behind a brother, William Pratt, husband of Kathleen of Holbrook, MA, and was predeceased by her sister, Marjorie L. Seaquist. She also leaves step-children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and close friends. The family would like to express its appreciation to the nurses and staff of the Laurelwood unit at Southwood at Norwell Nursing Center, in Norwell, MA for the kind and compassionate care they gave Dorothy during her stay there. Dorothy will be laid to rest at the Hillside Cemetery, Seabrook, NH. A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, September 15th at 11: 00 a.m.
