L. Doreen Floyd
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of L. Doreen (nee Smith) Floyd on 21 October 2020 at Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital.
Born in Titusville NB on 7 Aug 1933, she was a graduate of Hampton Consolidated School and Saint John General Hospital School of Nursing. Doreen loved her family and was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
While raising her family Doreen enjoyed many years of fishing and gardening along the Miramichi River as well as adventures travelling in North America and beyond. She was always ready to show up the boys with the best catch and the largest salmon learning to tie her own flies. The many wonderful gatherings she planned and hosted live on in the memories of her family and friends. Doreen was a whiz at Cribbage and Midnight Canasta.
Doreen leaves behind husband Kenneth; four children Stephen, Dean (Patricia, nee Gonnin), Beth MacAfee, James (Teresa, nee Boone); six grandchildren Isaac, Monique (Reegan) Walker, Eric MacAfee, Ian MacAfee (Erin, nee Dempsey), Arthur and Connor; two great grandchildren Joshua Walker and Hunter Walker. In addition, Doreen is survived by brother David (Marion, nee Barter) Smith and Sister-in-law Louise, nee Totten (widow of Raymond) Smith. She is predeceased by her parents Oscar and Delia, Sisters Melva (Norman) Clarke, Lola (Wilfred) Steeves and, brother Raymond.
Due to the circumstances in the province there will be no funeral or visitation. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers we would prefer donations in memoriam to Forest Hill United Church, Titus Hill Cemetery, or a charity of the donors' choice.
