Ally's Story

life changes in an instant

Ally with her dog, Ripley
Alexandra "Ally" Smith walked out the door on December 28, 2010 in her own happy and carefree way, with a smile on her face and laughter in her heart. On a country road in Sherborn, her life changed in an instant when her car skidded into the path of an oncoming car.

Ally was rushed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center where she was treated for a traumatic brain injury and facial trauma. She had three major surgeries and continued to fight her way back to us. The Alexandra Smith Foundation was formed to provide financial support for Ally's medical and rehabilitation costs.

Ally Smith loved life, laughter, horses, dogs (and all animals), and people too. She worked hard towards her goal of becoming a veterinarian and working with and caring for animals. Read more about Ally Smith and the Alexandra Smith Foundation.


November 20, 2012 - Ally passed away last night, November 19, 2012, almost two years after her tragic accident. Please join us at Alexander Thomas and Sons Funeral Home on 45 Common Street, Walpole, on Saturday November 24th from 4:00PM to 8:00PM. We would love nothing more than to celebrate Ally's life with her unbelievable support network of family and friends.
