JUDITH (JUDY) LEE SMITH, nee Grant, born on January 15, 1953, in Fredericton, New Brunswick to Peggy and Hayward Grant, passed away peacefully on July 8, 2021, in Raymond, Alberta. She is survived by her children, Joshua Smith (Brenda) their son Brandon and daughter Sally, Jacob Smith (Wanda) their daughters Brynn, Hannah and Abigail, Tiffany Kelly (Jason) their daughters Liliana and Molly, Benjamin Smith (deceased) and Andrew Smith. Judy grew up with 2 older brothers, Christopher and Lemuel (Chuck) a younger sister Susan and a younger brother David.
Judy was fiercely proud of her kids, grandkids and even her great-grandchild (Elliot). It always seemed that no matter how much trouble each of her kids could get into, she never stopped loving any of them. She rarely judged and supported her kids in every endeavor.
Judy was never one to not tell you exactly what was on her mind, almost to a fault. She was a free thinker, independent, loathed country music and had to learn how to adapt to tough situations. She had raised 5 kids alone, which is no small feat. Through her struggles, she taught her kids how to be resilient, survive anything that is thrown at them and how to also loath country music.
Judy would never let anybody tell her how to live her life, from trying to hitchhike across North America to what she claimed was her attempt to reach Woodstock (who knows what level of truth there is to that) to going to university while raising 5 young kids and dropping out because she was raising 5 young kids.
She has touched so many lives and her family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and the staff at Good Samaritans for taking exceptional care of our Mom, Nana and Great-Nana.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00pm on Thursday July 15, 2021 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints COBBLESTONE CHAPLE, 27 Cobblestone Lane, Raymond AB.
