Patricia "Patti" Ann Smart passed away on July 11, 2010. She was in her home, surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born in Canton, Ohio, on November 10, 1936 to Pat and Anne Simone. She spent her school years there with her large, loving Italian family. She moved to California after graduation and worked for the phone company until she met the handsome sailor, William "Bill" Smart and married him and started a family. They had four children together. When he transferred to Apple Valley with the Edison Company, Patti and Bill established a home and life in the High Desert where she made many friends. After 45 years of marriage, Bill passed away in 2000.
Patti was the pillar of the family, holding and keeping up the family traditions, gatherings and connections. She loved nothing more than to have family and friends together, enjoying the traditional Italian meals, and her delicious pies, while having a good time with food, love and laughter! Patti will greatly be missed by her family.
She is survived by her four children, Tamara Smart, Danya Hood (Scott), Terri-Lynn Smart and Brett Smart (Mimi) and six dearly loved grandchildren: Chris, Kaila, Tara, Jake, Brian and Kobe.
She also leaves behind her only brother Chip Simone and remaining sister, Mary Jo Simone. Patti had many nephews and nieces and their children who honored and loved "Aunt Patti:" Clayton, Tyler and Ashlynn; Nathan and Nolan; Jill, Emma and Madison; Jamie, Isabella, and Gavin; Jeff, Lorretta, Debbie and their children. In addition, all the many friends that considered Patti as their own "Aunt" and "Grandmother."
Patti will always hold a special and honored place in the hearts of the family and friends she has left behind.
In honor of her wishes, no services will be held.
