 Dorothy M. (Pyne) Santos, 89, of North Smithfield, passed away peacefully Monday afternoon, July 13, 2020, at Saint Antoine Residence. She was the beloved wife of the late Stanley N. “Jake” Santos.

Both she and Stanley enjoyed golfing together, and while in Florida, she scored a hole-in-one. While they enjoyed each other, their greatest joy was spending time with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
