Mrs. Jayne Patricia (née Holmes) Smith succumbed to depression on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at the age of 61 years. Jayne was the beloved wife of David Smith for 38 years. Loving mother of Matt (Heather), Spencer (Gillian), and Meredith (Jason). Nanny of Naomi, Evelyn, Thomas and Austen. Jayne will be sadly missed by her siblings Mark, Greg and Sandy. Predeceased by her parents Merton and Helen (née Charno) Holmes.
Jayne loved both willingly and genuinely. The countless people who truly knew her will always understand; to know her is to both love and be loved. Love was her greatest strength.
The last 9 months of her life were some of her best, because she felt she was finally able to live free of addiction. She told her family that she experienced “the miracle” and was able to start loving life again and everyone in it. The fellowship gave her this and it was her wish to help others through the program.
