Obituary for Margaret V. Dober (Vera)

On August 4, 2019, Margaret V. (Vera) Dober, 90, of Pompano Beach, Florida and formerly of Bristol, Rhode Island, went home to be with the Lord. She was the wife of the late Eric W. Dober. Peggy, as she was called, was born in Providence, RI, the daughter of the late Joseph and Margaret (Rego) Vera. She graduated from Colt Memorial High School, and Katherine Gibbs. Peggy worked as a secretary to the president of Smith's Manufacturing in Bristol for many years, and later as the administrative assistant to the superintendent of the Bristol School Department from where she retired.

For over 20 years, Peggy wintered in Florida and lived there full time for the last five years. In Florida, she attended Calvary Chapel.

Peggy was a member of the Bristol Junior Women's Club, and also a member of the Dudek's Bowling League. She liked playing cards and Bingo, and was an avid reader. She liked all sports, but her favorite was football. She liked watching the Boston Red Sox, and was a true New England Patriot's enthusiast, never missing a broadcast game.

Peggy's happiest times were spent with her family and friends. She is the mother of Margaret D. Pereira of Portsmouth,RI, Diane Paiva (Jesse) of Bristol, RI, Lynn Mosher of Pompano Beach, FL, Eric W. Dober, Jr. of Palm City, FL and the late William J. Dober. Peggy is the sister of Joseph R. Vera (Elizabeth), of Bristol, RI and the late Joseph Vera, Jr. She was Grandma Dober to nine grandchildren, Christopher Nappi, Koren Nappi, Steven Pereira, Kate Paiva, Eric Paiva, Chelsea Vieira (Zachary), Eric Dober III, Carlee Dober, and Jake Dober, six great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren. She also leaves many relatives and close friends.

Funeral services will be held at the Smith Funeral and Memorial Services, 8 Schoolhouse Road, Warren, RI. Calling hours are from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on Friday, August 16, 2019, with a Celebration of her Life at 12:00. Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery, Chestnut Street, Bristol. Relatives and friends are invited to attend.

In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or online at www.stjude.org.

Doesn't seem possible that all this time has gone by. I'm so sorry about your Mom. I remember her with all these kids and never getting frazzled. Astonishing really. Add friends and it was a small army. Peace Mrs. Dober.

I had the pleasure of knowing Peggy for 73 years, since our days in high school. For 9 years, she served as my administrative assistant during my term as superintendent of Bristol Public Schools. There I got to work with her on a daily basis. Not only was she an excellent administrative assistant, but a true and loyal friend. She always displayed a warm and friendly attitude. Terry and I are forever grateful for her friendship. She most certainly will be missed by all her knew her.
