Jessie Smith Hamby
Our gift from Heavenly Father
On July 4, 2014, our Mom, once again claimed her independence. She died peacefully at home. She returned to our Heavenly Father with her head held high. She was able to tell him that she had done her BEST! On her resume' she was able to list her most amazing job titles: Mom, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Aunt, Sister, Daughter and Friend.
Jessie was born in Georgetown, Idaho to Carmen and Levere Smith on September 7, 1926. She married Don F. Smith on April 18, 1941; later divorced; later sealed in the Mount Timpanogas Temple. Her ENTIRE life was based on her family. ALL of her enjoyment in life came by way of her family. Her most cherished moments came when her entire family could get together and surround her. Of all things in life she wanted to be known as a woman who loved her family. She will be remembered for her AMAZING sense of humor. She made life easier for everyone because of it. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a strong testimony of the gospel. She served in the Primary for 25 years. She held such callings as Primary President (3 times), and served in Young Women's for about 7 years. She worked for the LDS Church Distribution Center for 17 years.
She will be dearly missed by her daughters, Maxine (Alan) Laris, Julie (Bill) Stewart, and Jill (Brent) Hoskings; her grandchildren, Rickee, Brice, Joe, Nick, Jeremy, and Kayli; her perfect great-grandchildren, Alex Natalie, Kinlee, Boston, Jessica, Dannielle, Dax, Ramsey, Milo and Nikki, and her brother, Jerry Smith.
