We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Cedar Bay Funeral Home
Frances Louise Smith passed away on Sunday May 23rd, 2022. She is survived by her husband of almost 43 years, Thomas Smith, her daughter Nicole Smith-Scott (Karen), her son Justin Smith (Crista), three granddaughters, Lisa Smith-Scott, Luna Smith, and Soleil Smith, her brother, David Cooner (Judy), and many other family and friends. She is predeceased by her brothers, Jack Cooner and James Cooner. She was a kind and loving wife, mother, and friend who loved her family fiercely. She had a gift for making those around her feel special and important. She was generous and supportive, naturally putting others before herself. She was straight forward and never minced words. She was everyone’s biggest cheerleader but didn’t hesitate to tell you when you were wrong. Although she had many talents and hobbies, her greatest accomplishment was her family. She was the star around which they orbited. Her love was always apparent and unconditional and we will love and miss her more than words can express. Memorial services will be held on Monday May 30, 2022 at 11am in the chapel of Cedar Bay Funeral Home, 405 New Berlin Road, Jacksonville, with Rev. Jim Curtis officiating.
