Obituary: Louise Smith

Louise Smith "Precious Grandma" Louise Smith daughter of David Asael and Emily Jenkins Smith and the youngest of nine children, born March 23, 1916 returned peacefully to her Father in Heaven Sept. 12, 2005. She was an example of service, love and courage her entire life. At the age of 25, she took on the responsibility of raising her brother's children and soon after, the care of her parents. She considered this to be a blessing and the children called her mother. She served in many capacities in the LDS Church and served a full time mission to Canada. In her later years, she loved to create beautiful things for friends and family and was always generous and humble in her giving. She enjoyed being available whenever she could help and often took friends to doctor's appointments or the grocery store. Her brothers included David J, Asael J., Alfred J., Robert J., Edward J., Elmer J., and Hyrum J. and sister Mahala. She is survived by her daughter Sydney Lee Smith (O.. Richard Flack), her grandchildren Ric (Nikki), Mindy, Laurel, Chari (Shawn Goff), and Justin (Bethany), and her great-grandchildren Regan, Kelsie, Kennedi, Abby, and McKinley. Also by James Stull Smith (Susan) and their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and her countless nieces, nephews and sister in law, Elsie Kay Smith.
