It's with great sadness to announce the passing of Dorothy Smith, 76 of Calgary. She was the only daughter of the late Ralph and Marion (Lockhart) Canning.

Dorothy enjoyed life to the fullest, even when she wasn't feeling well. She was a fighter to the end. She worked many years at All Saints Hospital. She made a big change later in life and moved to Calgary. She then finished her working years at the Peter Lougheed Hospital. Everywhere she went she made friends. Her greatest joy was her only granddaughter, Hayley. She was so happy to be able to watch her grow up and spend so many special times with her.

Dorothy will be sadly missed by son Ricky of Prince George, BC; daughter Sandi Potter (Steven) of Calgary; brothers Jack (Cheryl) of Amherst; Brian (Carolyn) of Collingwood and sister in law Eileen of Southampton and several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers Doug and Carl.

Cremation is under the direction of Choice Memorial Cremation & Funeral Services, Calgary, AB. Memorial Service will be held at Symons Valley United Church (38 Kincora Rise NW) on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at 11:00 am. The service will also be live streamed at the following link:

Burial will take place in Leamington, NS at a future date.

Should friends so desire, memorial contributions may be sent to Rosedale Hospice (920-7A St NW, Calgary, AB T2M 3J4). To view and share photos, condolences and stories of Dorothy, visit

So sorry to hear of your mom/grandmas passing. I had many great conversations with her all the years I was lucky enough to cut her hair. Her stories were great,but the most special times was when all she talked about was you guys!! She was so grateful and blessed to share the years she did with you guys. Thank you for all the memories.
