SMITH, Florence Alexandria
(Aug. 6, 1941 - Sept. 25, 2013)

Loving wife, mother and grandmother. The sudden passing of a beloved wife and mother has been a shock to us and it will take time to heal. She leaves behind her loving husband John; daughters: Cindy (Rick), Fran (Doug); son: John (Denise); grandchildren: Amanda, Paul, Sasha, Alex and Tyler. Coming from little in life she worked hard for years to provide her family with the means to be successful. She was happily married to her husband John for 53 years, and together they owned and operated a successful business, Granny's Motor Inn, for 34 years. There are some things people may not have known about her, including she once a town councillor in Grand Bank, she volunteered with Girl Guides and the Swim Team, she loved to play music, she loved food, she especially loved to dress up and go out to a nice restaurant, all while she worked very long days up until 2012. If you've ever had the pleasure of talking to her you'd realize she has a good heart, she loved a good yarn and talking with people of all walks of life. Above all else her family was the most important thing, at every opportunity she was involved in her children and grandchildren's lives, hosting family gatherings, attending soccer games, graduations and most recently her oldest granddaughter's wedding. She always loved us unconditionally and was very proud of each of us. The love that she gave us will be missed but never forgotten. Thank you to Dr. S. Beckley and Dr. Paul Jackman for their great care. A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 28th from Barrett's Mount Pearl Chapel, 73 Commonwealth Avenue, Mount Pearl. Donations in her memory can be made to the United Church in Fortune or a charity of your choice. Please visit www.barretts.ca to sign the memorial guestbook.
