Anita Faye Smedley
The Guest Book is expired.
Anita (Henderson) Smedley went home to be with the Lord September 27, 2013 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born on March 31, 1959 to Bernice and the late Graydon Arrant, Anita was more than just a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, or friend - she was a hero to those who love her. She was the type of woman who would give you the shirt off of her back without ever asking for anything in return. She enjoyed spending time with her family and watching her grandchildren grow up. Her kind heart and generous nature made her a friend to everyone she met. Anita was truly one of a kind. Her bright light will be missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing her.
She is preceded in death by her father, Graydon Arrant and sister, Sue Carroll.
Anita is survived by her husband, Ronald Smedley; mother, Bernice Arrant; sisters, Patricia Stewart, Linda Armstrong, Kay Arrant; brother, Gary Arrant; daughters, Stephanie Henderson, Kristina Henderson and Jessica Bott (Michael); grandsons, Connor Henderson, Kody Nutt and Coen Bott; granddaughter, Emily Nutt.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her honor to Ensley First Baptist Church at http://www.ensleyfbc.org/ or mailed to 50 W. Johnson Avenue Pensacola, FL 32534.
A special thank you to Dr. Sunnenberg and the staff at the Sacred Heart Cancer Center for all of the support and care that they have provided over the past 15 months.
