Carrie R. Smith, 93, has Gone Fishing. She embarked on her final journey home, March 7, 2021, while at home in Cabot.

May their reunion be a happy one.

She worked at for Du-Co Ceramics and retired after 12 years from Colonial Pharmacy. She was a member of St. Joseph R.C. Church in Cabot, and the Saxonburg Area Sportsman Club. Carrie enjoyed bowling, formerly fishing, crocheting, and emailing family members.

Thanks to all the nurses and aides from Concordia Hospice for their help and care. Thanks also to Sarah and Jenn for your assistance when needed.
Being an adventerous spirit, she is requesting anyone in attendance not to wear black,-put on something colorful and celebrate her life not mourn her passing. She believed flowers were for the living and asked that instead donations be made to the St. Crispin fund as St. Joseph Church or the South Butler Community Library.
