Letitia Ellen Smith

SMITH, Letitia Ellen (Lenfesty)

Letitia’s family is heartbroken to announce her passing one day before her 95th birthday on September 7, 2022, at the North Bay Regional Hospital. She was born September 8, 1927, in North Bay to Annabelle and Grant Lenfesty.  In 1949 Letitia married John Smith (predeceased 2016) and together they raised 4 children in the Graniteville area where many lifelong friendships were formed.  After being a stay-at-home mom for years, Letitia returned to work in the retail and clerical field including the creation of the Home Care organization from which she retired.  After retirement came many years of travel adventures in the Caribbean and Florida as well as relaxation at the family cottage on Hemlock Island.  Following the lives of her grandchildren gave her great joy and family was always most important. In 2019 Letitia moved to Empire Living where she became an active resident and made many new friends.  The family thanks the staff at the Empire for their excellent care.

Letitia was pre-deceased by her husband John, her grandsons Robert Smith and Michael Desmarais and her sister Eileen Wharram (Alan). She is survived by her children Linda (Roger), Ron (Louise), Ken (Holly), and Barbara (Gary) as well as her sister Violet Manary (Ross).  Letitia’s grandchildren will miss her immensely - Cindy Reichel (Andy), Nicolas Faubert-Smith (Cebryna Spiess), Julie Faubert-Smith (Gareth Baker), Martin Faubert-Smith (Stacey Juss-Smith), Keegan Smith, Trevor Smith, and Caroline McMillan (Brayden St. Germain).  She is also survived by 4 Great-Grandchildren, Adley and Everley Faubert-Smith and Antoine and Samantha Baker and special nephew Brian Wharram (Trudy Wright).  She will be missed by all lives she touched. 

A Memorial Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 6, 2022, from 2:00pm -4:00pm and 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the Martyn Funeral Home (464 Wyld St. North Bay) with a Memorial Service to follow on Friday, October 7, 2022, at St. John’s Anglican Church at 11:00am.
