In Memory of Nancy Smith

She was born on March 15th, 1961 to parents Erven & Mildred Smith in St. Paul, MN. Nancy had many interests growing up & in her adulthood. She often listened to music & watched videos & television. Nancy especially loved Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune, but her favorite TV character was Mickey Mouse. Nancy collected everything Mickey, from cards & pictures to accessories & most of what was in her closet. She also loved seeing family videos & pictures, & was never without some her favorite photos to admire & share throughout her day. Nancy took great joy in hearing the sneezes of her friends & family, often “sneezing” along & cheering each one on. Nancy’s pure, loving heart, special names for everyone, silly sense of humor, & contagious smile will be missed by all who were blessed to have known & love her.

Nancy will remain in the hearts of her siblings, Dennis (Alicia) Smith of Hammond, WI, Timothy (Claudia) Smith of Hammond, WI, William (Susan) Smith of River Falls, WI, Pamela Smith of Oakdale, MN, & Emily (Kevin) Lindus of Luck, WI; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, & the caregivers at Brotoloc.

A Private Family Funeral Service will be held for Nancy at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home in Baldwin, WI. Interment took place at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN alongside her parents & brother. Memorials made in Nancy’s memory will be put towards providing something beautiful to the place she called home for so many years, Brotoloc Health Systems in River Falls, WI. Nancy’s family would like to extend their immense gratitude to the staff & caregivers at Brotoloc Health Systems of New Richmond, WI for giving her the utmost love & care during the years Nancy called it home.

    • Fond memories of Nancy back in the 70’s. Her sister Emily & I were in Junior High, and I’d stay at their farm house in Woodville. It was fun making the trips with Millie or Pam & Emily to pick up & return Nancy to her home I believe was Northern Colonies in Chippewa Falls, As well as when Emily got her license & we’d make the trip ourselves. I can still picture her happy excited face when she saw us and family. Her treasured items to hold & show everyone was her green Gumby doll & folded newspaper ad clipping for Wrigley’s chewing gum . Nancy was a blessing & made you realize that it’s the simple things that give you true pleasure & happiness!

    • May you rest well in heaven Sweet Nancy. It was an honor to have met such a wonderful person in such a great family. Emily,Toad,Tim,Bill,Pam , So sorry for your loss dearest friends Nancy will be dancing with angels and so happy to see Erv,Millie and Ken again. Love to you all. Hugs from a far. Love Roxi and Wayne.

    • Auntie Nancy, I’m so happy you were a part of my life. I’ll never forget sneezing with you, sharing pictures, or singing Bloody Nose. You were always such a joy and so much fun to be around. You’re forever the best at Christmas karaoke. You changed all of us for the better. Love you so much ❤️
