LISBON FALLS: Donella "Donna" Smith, 72, of Lisbon Falls passed away unexpectedly on September 26, 2018 with her children by her side. She was born in Rumford on August 23, 1946 the youngest daughter of Aubrey and Annie (Sennett) White. Donella grew up in Canton where she graduated Valedictorian of Canton High School and Horseshoe Valley Academy. Following graduation she went on to attend college classes at night and worked as a supervisor for Tambrands and Procter & Gamble for over thirty years before retiring and going on to work at Liberty Mutual.

Following her retirement from Liberty Mutual, and not being a fan of the snow, she moved to Florida and enjoyed several years in the sunshine before returning home to Maine in 2018 to bravely face the snow and be closer to her family. She loved spending time at home with her family and friends, having cookouts, cheering on the Patriots, playing bingo and working on word searches. She believed in being a hard worker and that you get out of life what you put in. Donella is survived by her son, Troy Smith and wife Rebecca of NH, daughter Lori Smith of Lisbon Falls, grandchildren, Xavier and Savannah of NH, and many nephews, nieces and cousins. Predeceasing her and welcoming her into Heaven are her parents, three siblings, Owen White, Dolly Cogley and Dorothy Wentzell, and her love of over thirty years, Jerry Burpee.
