Ann Smith

Date of Death: March 13, 2016

Date of Birth: July 21, 1941


Lewiston - Ann Smith, 74, of Lewiston passed away Monday, March 13 surrounded by her daughters and brother, Art, at the Hospice House in Auburn following a long illness.

Ann was born July 21, 1941 in Lewiston to Arthur and Evelyn Hastings. While she spent most of her life here she decided to make the move to California where she had many adventures and friends.

She was a self-described people person which served her well in the hospitality field. She had fond memories of the days working at Happy Jacks and Sings restaurant and while in California she worked in property management which she loved and had many stories.

Ann was devoted to her faith and often, if not every time you departed, she would say, “Dial J for Jesus and A for Ann,” if there was anything you should need. She enjoyed watching her Sunday masses as her faith was very important to her.

Some of her passions included singing and dancing, (oh how she loved all the different dances, and could really bust a move.) She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bingo was one of her favorite activities as was making people laugh as she always had a joke on standby. She had many friends that she enjoyed whether it was on the phone or in person, she was thankful for them all.

Ann is survived by her brother Arthur and his wife Patricia of California and a brother Larry and his wife Caroline of Lewiston. She is also survived by her children. Her son James of Ohio, three daughters, Joanne and her husband Bruce, Diana and her husband Howard of Michigan and Jeanie and her husband Devin of California. She had eleven grandchildren and three great children which she was proud of and loved very much. She is also survived by an aunt, cousin and niece and nephews.

She was predeceased by both her parents and one brother, Robert. She also has a son in heaven, David, who passed away in 1998 whom she missed dearly.

Services will be private with the family and she will rest with her son, David in California at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to her favorite charity:  St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude’s Place, Memphis TN 38105
