Dorothy Margaret (Quintal) Girard, of Bristol, Rhode Island, died, Wednesday, February 17, 2021, the day before her 94th birthday.

Dorothy was the proud mother of Brian Girard, Karen Girard Harting, and Gary Girard, devoted wife of the late Russell Girard, mother-in-law to David Harting and Deborah Girard, and godmother to her dearest niece, Arlene Almeida. She was blessed with 3 grandchildren, Alyssa Martin, Tucker Harting and Ian Harting, and two great-grandchildren, Delaney and Daxton Martin. Born and raised in Bristol, she was the daughter of the late Donat and Vitaline Quintal, and the last surviving sibling of Blanche Haskins, Edna Proulx, Bertha Coullard, Cora D’Alessio and “Slim” Quintal.

As a working mother of three, Dorothy worked for the First National Stores until 1976. At 52, she joined the Bristol Medical Center as the emergency room switchboard operator until retiring at age 72. Dorothy was a devout catholic and life-long communicant of St. Jean the Baptiste Church.

In 2015, she returned to Bristol as a resident of Franklin Court. Dorothy was a strong, independent woman who will be deeply missed.

My condolences to the Girard family. It is never easy to lose one's mother, no matter the years. So may you find comfort in knowing that a mother's love is forever with you. Know that she will continue to smiles on your face each time you think of the fine memories you've made together as a family. In God's loving care Dorothy now rests. John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:29
