Obituary of Donna L. Smith
Naples/Rushville Donna L. (Boyea) Smith, age 71, passed away surrounded by family at home on Friday, April 10, 2020. Donna was born on December 2, 1948 in Merrill NY to the late Wesley & Pearl (Roberts) Boyea. She worked as a Teacher's Assistant at the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES program before retiring. Donna loved mowing the lawn, crocheting, cooking, cleaning and cuddling her fur-babies; she especially enjoyed taking drives in the back hills and relaxing on summer nights with a cold Labatt Blue Light next to her husband; however, most of all, Donna enjoyed spending time and playing with her grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Donna is predeceased by her brothers: Robert & Richard Boyea. Donna is survived by her devoted husband of over 50 years, Eli and their children: Brian (Patrese) Smith of Plattsburgh NY, Brad (Tracy) Smith of Rushville NY, Eli (Alina) Smith of Prosper TX, and Krystal (Thomas) Valvo of Elma NY; 10 grandchildren: Ciarra, Brandon, Tylar, Sabrina, Austin, Madelyn, Izabela, Weston, Emelia & Kolton; her great-grandchild, Brayden; and her sister, Beverly Demers of Chateaugay NY. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, there will be no public services. Donna's family is planning a Celebration of Life later in the year.
