SMITH, Lea-Marie Shay On the evening of November 14 2020, Our Angel Lea-Marie Shay Smith of Lithia exited this stage at the age of 19. Lea was born in Tampa to the proud parents of William and Sheryl Smith in the year of 2000. She graduated from Newsome High School in 2019, and began preparing for her passion in the art of acting, playwriting and theater. Lea was a beautiful person, warm with a smile that would brighten any and all that she met. She did not know or subscribe to labels or lines of color, was very compassionate, wise for her age and loved her family and friends with an unmatched dynamic tenacity. She was known for being all in and standing firm in her believes. Lea is survived by her parents, William and Sheryl Smith; sister, Anna-Laurin; grandparents, Tayfun and Ann Avdan, John Noda and Joyce Pardo; aunts, Kathy, Tara and Rhonda; her cats, Oreo and Ink ; best friend, Kim Zopfi; several cousins and many others.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Lea but I know she was a kind, sweet and caring person. Her grandmother, Ann is my friend and she spoke so highly of her. I am so sorry you have this grief to bear. May you find peace in all the good memories.
