Paradise glows brighter now with the presence of our mother, Sally Lurena Smith Williams, who entered its gates on 9 Nov 2012.
She spent the last several months of life teaching us her final lessons on endurance, patience, and love. Mom was born 24 March 1937 to Martin Blaine Smith and Arline Mitchell. She married and divorced Robert Taylor, Gordon Evans, and Dean Johanson. She was the widow of Dallas Williams.
She loved music and was an avid dancer. Sally belonged to the Western Two-Steppers dance team, was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and worked as a cook in the Ogden City School District until she retired.
As a single parent, her life revolved around raising her children and she sacrificed much for their sake. Mom thanked her family many times for being by her side as she made her long journey home.
Her parents, grandparents, and one grandchild graduated from life before her and are undoubtedly having a joyous reunion.The family would like to thank everyone that brought smiles and helping hands while she underwent polishing during the last stages of her life.
