"In Loving Memory of Daphna Douthwright"
Daphna Douthwright, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, left this world leaving a void that can never be filled. She departed on Friday October 27, surrounded by the love of her family.
Daphna is predeceased by her mother, Beulah (Steeves) Jollymore and father Ancel Jollymore. She is survived by her loving husband, Blaine Douthwright, her children; Cassia Nielsen (Andrew), Eliah Douthwright, and Nethaniel Douthwright (Jenna), her cherished grandchildren; Adiah, Lydia, Lilla, Hank, Lucy and her 9 siblings; Wanda (John), Leona (Kevin), Verna, Bill (Judy), Jaqueline (Micheal), Edward (Sue), Charles (Janet), Charlene (Josh), Debbilea (Kevin) along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Daphna had a heart of gold and a passion for helping others, a trait that touched the lives of countless people. Her kindness and generosity were unwavering, making her a source of strength and support for her family and friends. She was a dedicated wife to Blaine, a nurturing mother to her children, and a doting grandmother who adored her grandchildren.
One of Daphna's greatest joys was her love for Frenchy's, yard sales and finding a good deal. She had an uncanny knack for uncovering treasures amidst the ordinary. Her enthusiasm for these excursions was infectious, and she often brought home newfound gems that would spark conversations and laughter ...and maybe a few eye rolls!
Daphna's culinary skills were renowned, and her kitchen was a place of warmth and love. For 10 years she shared her home cooked meals and treats with the children at Wee College Evergreen and Hildegard, where she was the cook, bus driver and occasional attitude adjuster. She was always willing to share her recipes and cooking tips, ensuring that her culinary legacy would live on through her Wee College colleagues and loved ones.
Her wisdom was not confined to the kitchen; Daphna was a trusted confidante, offering sage advice to anyone in need. Her words were a source of comfort and guidance, and her ability to listen without judgment was a rare and cherished gift.
Daphna's impact was profound, and her memory will forever be etched in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known her. She was a pillar of strength and love, and her legacy of kindness and compassion will live on for generations to come.
The family would like to thank the amazing nurses, doctors and staff at the Dr. George-L Dumont and the Moncton Hospital Oncology Units, along with extramural, the palliative care team and the home support workers that allowed her to stay at home and in comfort until the end. We deeply appreciate all the support you provided to Daphna and Blaine.
Though she may no longer be with us in person, the spirit of Daphna Douthwright lives on in the memories and love she shared with everyone she met. She will never be forgotten, and her legacy will continue to inspire us to be better, kinder, and more loving in all that we do."
