1950 ~ 2022 (age 72)

Obituary

It is with great heavy hearts that we announce that Myrtle Smith passed away at the Riverside Health Complex in Turtleford on September 17th, 2022 with her family at her side.

Myrtle was born in the Turtleford Hospital on February 15th, 1950. She was the fifth and last child born to Jim and Lurane Davidson. She grew up on the family farm in the Brightsand area.

She had a great childhood and loved to share memories of that time. It seemed like a time of fun, hard work and a lot of shenanigans! So many stories! On August 15th, 1970 she married David Smith and they went on to have three children: Penny, Pamela and Darrel. She loved when they were able to move out to the acreage. She was happy doing all the renovations that had to take place (except for when they would come across the mice!), she also loved working out in her huge garden and yard there. There were so many happy memories made at that place. She loved being outside, loved camping and loved being surrounded by her family. Mom was so happy when they bought the cabin up at Brightsand Lake, and even more so when her and dad were able to retire up there. She loved it best when she was surrounded by her grandkids. They meant the world to her, she would move Heaven and Earth to make them happy. Her favourite thing was when she could just sit back and listen to them having a good time with each other, she loved listening to them laugh and have fun. She had a huge impact on us all and she loved us all fiercely, she will be greatly missed.

Left to cherish Myrtle’s memory is her loving family: Husband, David; Daughter, Penny (Doug), Jessica (Autumn), Dani (Malcolm); Daughter, Pam (Aaron), Hailey (Lane), Tristan (Kamryn); Son, Darrel (Araya), Anna, Sophia and Adira; Sister, Alvina; Sister-in-law, Darleen; Sister-in-law, Myrna (Roly); Sister-in-law & Brother-in-law: Linda & Walter, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Myrtle was predeceased by her Mom, Lurane; Dad, James; Father-in-law, Gordon; her Brothers: Tommy, Jack and Don; her Sister-in law, Jean and her Brother-in-law, Delbert.

As per Myrtle’s wishes there will be no funeral. A private family interment will be held.  Memorial donations in memory of Myrtle Smith can be directed to the Kinsmen TeleMiracle Foundation 2217C Hanselman Court, Saskatoon SK S7L 6A8.
