Sep. 15, 1921 – Aug. 9, 2021. Mom spent her happiest years with the love of her life, Larry Smith, the lanky little boy from around the corner, until Nov. 19, 1999. They married Nov. 3, 1940, then mom bravely followed him to NYC, as he trained for the Pacific Theatre. They spent 59 years together, raising their family, traveling, and shopping. During this time, Mom found that she loved hotels and camping!
I learned late in life that she loved watching me work with and ride my horses, she was proud. Georgia Smith (Jakovac) was an outstanding, beautiful woman, in so many ways, and my best friend. I miss our conversations and that sparkle of mischief in her eyes. I look forward to seeing my mom again in the resurrection. Mom, Dad, and Michael, all together again and forever.
She is survived by her daughter, Suzette Randall (Smith); Katie B. Northrup (Dykstra); and Puppy Yaga.
A private interment will take place in Evergreen Cemetery. Contributions can be made to the Capital Area Humane Society. Arrangements are by the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel.
