Obituary for Nancy Isabel Merritt (Smith)

Nancy Isabel  Merritt (Smith)
MERRITT, Dr. Nancy Isabel (nee Smith)

Dr. Nancy “Moo” Smith Merritt died peacefully at home on June 27th, 2018, holding her daughters’ hands and surrounded by loving family. Survived by her husband, Dr. Richard Merritt and two daughters, Tiffany Merritt (Eric Partington) and Susannah Merritt (Jonathan Link), she was the adored “Gammy” of Oscar, Althea, Alec and Mavis. She is also survived by her dear siblings Monte Smith (Rose Marie), Joan Smith and her sister-in-law, Susan Merritt (Cameron Williams, deceased). Her extended family included nieces and nephews, Brian Smith, Catherine and Blake Williams and many cousins. Her life was enriched by her Aunt Isabel Powell and Uncle Jim Cruise.

Nancy was born in 1944 and raised on a farm near Port Dover, schooled locally and graduated from School of Medicine at Queen’s University, Kingston. Her ophthalmological career spanned thirty-seven years in both Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls.

Her interests were family and friends, travel, skiing, hiking, swimming, Book Club and “general tinkering,” but her real passion was for her daughters and in her later years, her beloved grandchildren.

Nancy and her family are forever grateful to her medical team, especially Dr. Al Covens, Dr. Gill Thomas, Dr. Xin Chong and Dr. John Taliano.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of her Life will occur in late summer, 2018.
