Kate (Kathy) Smartt

Kate (Kathy) Smartt, nee Hunnicutt - Spelts went to her heavenly home on October 31, 2020. She was saddened to leave her home, family, and friends, but knows she will be with her God until all are gathered. Kate fought bravely for eighteen years with a rare Neuoroendocrine Carcenoma but kept a light heart to honor her Christ Jesus. She will await all those she loved in heaven. For now, she must leave behind her beloved husband, Rick; children, Amanda King and husband Ryan, Heather Smartt, Heidi Smartt, and Buck Waid and wife Courtney; father, Gilbert E. Hunnicutt; brother; Jim Hunnicutt; and 10 grandchildren. Kate was in a true word, a Christian. She loved music and sang in numerous choirs and chorales in Colorado and New Mexico. Kate loved her work as a registered nurse and science researcher and caring for the very sick in Pediatric Intensive Care. She enjoyed hiking, kayaking, skiing, camping and fishing with her husband. She leaves behind numerous friends from Colorado and New Mexico, who were all like family to her. With gratitude, love and beautiful memories Kate has gone to her Eternal Home with no pain or suffering. Memorial Services will be announced at a future date.

Kathy and I grew up in Albuquerque, we were cousins and the same age.
We had a lot of fun together in our earlier years . Your bond never goes away. My most recent memory was when we went to see her in Colorado a few years back, we went to a park and I pushed her around in the wheel chair she was worried I’d go to fast and crash. We had a good laugh that day. Loved her so much. She was truly a great person and so sweet.

Kate was the strongest women I ever met. She told me she prayed to God and asked to stay alive long enough to see her first grandchild, (Jordyn). God answered her prayer, and then some. She got to meet 10 grandchildren! She fought for so long but now she's up in heaven looking down at all of us.
