Susan Michele Smith was born in Penn Yan, New York on August 30, 1970. She passed away Friday, January 25, 2013 at the age of 42 years, in Katy, Texas, after a two and a half year battle with ovarian cancer. She was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Welch.
Susan is survived by her husband, Wayne Robert Smith; son, James Richard Smith; daughter, Cami Kay Collins-Smith; son, Ryan Patrick Smith; son, Jacob William Smith; sister, Karen Nealey; sister, Jennifer Johnson; sister, Christine Kiffer; sister Heather Kelly-Carlson and many wonderful nieces, nephews, and friends.
Susan was a longtime resident of Scio, New York, where she served on the Scio Central School District school board, and was a member of the Scio Church of Christ. In 2005, she and her family relocated to Katy, Texas to further her nursing career and provide her children added opportunities. Susan devoted her life to helping others, never failing to extend her hand to those in need.
Susan loved to channel her inner-child and travel to Disney World. The magic she felt there can only be mirrored by the magic healing of her hands and her words. More than anything, Susan loved to spend as much time with her husband and children as she could.
She will be loved and missed by all.
Memorial Service will be held on Friday, February 1, 2013 at 2 p.m. at Carnes Funeral Home, 1102 Indiana, South Houston, Texas 77587
