Marsha Nelson Smith, 63, of Livingston died Feb. 5, 2008, at Billings Deaconess Hospital. Marsha was born in Glasgow on June 4, 1944.

Marsha was a strong and beautiful woman who dedicated her entire life to helping other people. She was a very talented person who was able to fix and do literally anything. She enjoyed tumbling and cutting rocks and agates to make jewelry, and she was a master seamstress. She was able to mend anything that was brought to her, including a broken heart. She dedicated all of her being to her five children: Twila Hillman, Lee Hillman, Tammy Lewis, George Hyde, and Julie Cruz. Marsha was a woman of strong compassion for others and she possessed an unconditional, undying love for all.

After being born in Glasgow, she then moved to Bozeman. From Montana, she moved to Florida, residing in Tampa and Saint Cloud. In August 2005, Marsha moved back to Livingston, where she resided until she passed away.

Marsha made an impact on many lives, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Although Marsha is no longer with us, her memories of being a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, will live on forever.

Marsha is survived by her children: Twila Hillman, Lee (Jessica) Hillman, Tammy (Roy) Lewis, and Julie (Daniel) Cruz, all of Livingston, and George (Corie) Hyde of Rifle, Colo.; and numerous grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters: Ralph (Rhea) Nelson of Manhattan, Donna Rennick of Glasgow, Marie Hobby of Marietta, Ga., and Brent (Elouise) Nelson of Zephyrhills, Fla.

Cremation has taken place. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. April 12, at Bell Funeral Home, 701 S. Second St., Glasgow.
