Obituary of Michele Dianne Smith
Michele Dianne Smith
(February 1, 1965 - August 10, 2021)
Michele was born February 1st, 1965 in Camrose to Stewart and Violet Smith.
Our dear daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, aunty, passed away peacefully on August 10, 2021 at the Wetaskiwin Hospital after a short, courageous battle with cancer, at the age of 56, surrounded by family.
Michele is lovingly missed by her three boys: Cody, Ryan (Lacey), and DJ (Johdi). Along with grandchildren: Caitlyn, Madison, Kayden, Colbin, and Puppy Cricket. Also, survived by her mother Violet Smith; and siblings Adele (Randi), William (Kerry), Vernon (Victoria), and Craig.
Michele was predeceased by her loving dad Stewart Smith; and grandparents Arthur and Elise Smith, and Ivy and Ben Sallee.
Michele was raised on the family farm located at East Bittern Lake.
She grew up with a strong love for family and a soft heart for all animals, especially her dogs and horses.
Michele loved Violet’s passion for ceramics. She had many of her mom’s ceramic pieces displayed in her home and garden beds, which she was proud of.
Michele’s beloved home was filled with all of her unique and handpicked treasures. Searching for special antiques brought so much joy and happiness to Michele’s heart.
Watching her dad Stewart play the saxophone created her love for country music and dancing the night away with family and friends.
Michele was a very hard worker and took great pride in doing a good job at whatever job she took on. From working on construction sites, to cooking out at camp, to auto-detailing, and finally her best job of being a “Grandma Redneck.”
Michele had a laugh and smile that would brighten anyone’s day. She was always the first to give a hug and was so much fun to be with.
A feisty, free-spirited, firecracker. She will be missed greatly and will be a light in our hearts forever.
A Funeral Service was held at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 17, 2021 from the Burgar Memorial Chapel, 4817 - 51 Avenue Camrose.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Michele's memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
