Obituary of Alma Irene Ann Smith
Alma Irene Anne Smith (Sebastian)
March 29, 1941 – Nov 3, 2019
Alma Irene Anne Smith passed away peacefully on November 3, 2019 at the age of 78 years young.
Alma Irene Anne (Sebastian) Smith was born March 29, 1941 at the farm in the Wishart district. She was the fourth child of Louis and Susan, a family of thirteen children, eight boys and five girls. The family moved from Wishart, SK to the family farm a mile south of Lestock, SK, where Alma spent her childhood and teen years. Alma and George got married in 1963 in Winnipeg, MB. They lived in several locations in Alberta throughout the years. The last ten years she resided in Camrose, AB.
Regardless of what was going on in her life, her smile never faded. She always had a positive outlook and had kind words for anyone whom she met. She will always be remembered for her famous “Hello” and her signature wave.
Left to cherish her memory is her daughter Corrina Smith (Richard Kerwin); grandchildren Lisa (Wayne), Christa, Tianna, Peyton (Dylan), and Cooper (Azia); great-grandchild Ari; sisters Alice, Verna (Andy), Elsie(John) and Helen(Dave); brothers Dennis, Ed, Steve(Yvonne) and Allan; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Alma was predeceased by her husband George; son Darrin; her parents, Louis and Susan; brothers Joe, Duke, Bill and Ernie.
A very special and heartfelt thank you to Pastor David Eriksson and to all the staff at Louise Jensen. A sincere thank you to the amazing staff at Lilac Cottage. Words cannot express our appreciation for the care and kindness that you brought to Mom for many years.
A memorable service will be held at a later date.
