Dora Arsenault Obituary

     Dora M. Arsenault “Meme”, 96, passed away at home surrounded by family on April 8, 2024. Formerly of New Hampton, NY, Dora was the daughter of the late Michael and Margaret DesRoches. Dora was born in Tignish, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

     Dora was “Meme” to everyone that met her, and her house was always the gathering place where no one ever left hungry. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was known to be a good sport and was always up for an adventure. She was an avid knitter, reader, and game player.


     In addition to her parents, Dora was also predeceased in death by her husband, Ernest; grandson, Nicholas; brothers, Alcide and Leo.


     Left to cherish her memory are her children, Gail (Bill) of Myrtle Beach, SC; Judy, Paul and Donna (Leon), all of Murrells Inlet, SC and Lisa of San Diego, CA; grandchildren; Ryan (Keri), Brandon, Danny, Lauren, Tyler, Elizabeth and Sierra; great grandson, Shawn; sisters, Clarice, Phyllis, Sylvia and many nieces and nephews both in the US and Canada.


     A Funeral Mass was celebrated at St. Michael Catholic Church in Garden City, SC on May 6, 2024 at 12:00pm. A Memorial Mass and burial will be held in Middletown, NY. at a later date.


     The family would like to express special thanks to the many kind and compassionate caregivers and especially to Caris Healthcare/Hospice.


     In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Portuguese Historical Center Scholarship Fund (In Memory of Nicholas Joseph) , PO Box 60749, San Diego, CA 92166-8749.
