Ruelene Jacobson Fillerup-Smith Obituary
RUELENE JACOBSON FILLERUP-SMITH Ruelene Jacobson Fillerup-Smith returned to our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ on February 25, 2018. Ruelene was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She exercised great faith in Jesus Christ throughout her life and was obedient to His commandments; she offered the sacrifice of a broken heart and a contrite spirit, and rendered frequent and plenary service to others. She will come forth on the morning of the first resurrection. Ruelene was born on February 3, 1932 in Provo, Utah, the oldest child of Reuel and Ina Jacobson. Reuel was a prominent sheep rancher in the Wasatch Mountains. Ina, maiden name Allred, was also from a ranching family. Ruelene was raised in Provo and attended Brigham Young University there. Ruelene married Leland M Fillerup on December 20, 1951. Lee was a well-known physician in Butte County. After he died in 2013, Ruelene married Paul D Smith, Lieutenant Colonel United States Army, Retired, in 2014. Paul and Ruelene had a tender and affectionate relationship. Ruelene obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts and a Master of Arts Degree in Fine Arts. She was an artist in multiple media, primarily water color. Her perspicacity gave her deep appreciation for the beauty of the world. Ruelene is survived by her dear husband Paul D Smith, six children Ann Rosine, David Fillerup, Susan Ward, Mark Fillerup, Joseph Fillerup and Peter Fillerup, 19 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by three grandchildren.
