Obituary for Patricia (Pat) Irene Smith

Patricia (Pat) Irene Smith passed peacefully from this Earth surrounded by her family; just four days shy of her 78th birthday. Pat was born March 24, 1941 to Russell and Marjorie Hanson. The family moved from Mount Shasta, CA to the Rogue Valley where Pat graduated from Medford High School in 1959.
Pat was an avid gardener, and thoroughly enjoyed the rhythm of the seasons that guided her activities in her flower garden. And while gardening brought her great joy, it was her family – immediate and extended – that brought Pat the greatest pleasure in life. Pat was extremely proud of her family, and supportive almost to a fault in the selfless way in which she raised her children. She was never blessed with material wealth, but this did not keep her from showering her family with unquestioned love and encouragement. She believed strongly in the power of positive thoughts and kind actions.
Pat’s work, her joy, and her calling in life was raising children. She took to heart the adage “find something you love to do, and you will never work a day in your life”. To that end, she operated her own in-house daycare service for well over 20 years, and during that time, was blessed with the opportunity to share in the lives of many young children who would spend their weekdays with “Grandma Pat”. Pat so enjoyed her “little ones” and the gift of being entrusted by parents to help shape the lives of their sons and daughters. She was “Mom and Grandma” to so many and will be greatly missed.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Vernon and ex-husband, Dale. She is survived by her children, Michael (Sara), Wendy, Guy, Brad (Lorrie) and Dane; her grandchildren, Cy (Natalie), Jonah, Clayton, Jessie, Kekoa and Kanani; numerous daycare grandchildren, great friends and loving family.
A “Celebration of Life” event will be held in Pat’s honor on Saturday, May 11th at her home located at 2121 E. Jackson St. Her children welcome family and friends to attend this informal service to celebrate the amazing life of a woman known to so many as “Grandma Pat”. The event is scheduled to start at 2pm.
