Mary Smith Obituary

Mary Anne Smith, age 90, of Tipton, passed away Friday, January 26, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in 1933 in Peru, Indiana to her parents, William Armstrong and Zella (McGowan) Armstrong. Mary shared 62 beautiful years with her husband, Jack Smith. He preceded her in death in 2015.  

 Mary attended Bunker Hill High School. She was a homemaker, and always considered it an honor to care for her family. Mary was strong in her faith; never missed a day of reading her bible. She was a beacon of hope in the lives of her family and friends. Mary babysat for many years and will be fondly remembered by the many children whose lives she impacted. Mary was funny, upbeat, kind, and encouraging. She always left others better than how she found them. Mary was very giving of her time and resources. She loved entertaining, cooking, and having tea parties. No one will ever be able to beat Mary’s homemade chicken and noodles and peanut butter pie! Her house was always immaculate and welcoming; she was always ready to invite loved ones in and care for them. Mary’s yard and garden were kept just as neat, and beautiful to the eye. Her family will miss her for so many reasons. Perhaps the conversations on the front porch swing will be missed most of all! Mary was an amazing storyteller. She was strong in her convictions, and wise in her instruction when it came to life and love. More than anything, Mary always offered those around her the gift of unconditional love. She was one of a kind, and will be missed beyond measure! 

 Those left to carry on Mary’s legacy of love are her children, Jackie (Dan) Yentes, Joe Smith, Angie (Soren) Smith-Bergeson; grandchildren, Sean (Heather) Yentes, Tara (Jamie) Smith, Starr Eubank, Maiya (Nana) Budu, Jody Camille, Angela (Steve) Stromberger, Lora (Dave) Kinyon, Elise (Alfredo) Pinon, Rene Smith, Taelor Wood, Hanna Wood, Lars Bergeson, Winona Bergeson; 22 greatgrandchildren; sisters in law, Kita Ogden, Pam Hulin, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.  

Mary was welcomed into Heaven by her husband, Jack Smith; parents, William and Zella Armstrong; 9 siblings; and 1 sister-in-law.
