Mildred Jeanne Smith
-- 1930 ~ 2011 --

Mildred Jeanne Davis Smith, 80, passed into the next life on August 31st, 2011 shortly after saying goodbye to her loving family. Her final days were spent with her daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren by her side, whom she treasured dearly.

Born on September 2nd, 1930 in Biddeford, Maine to Theodora Bragdon and Robert Arthur Davis, Jr., Millie proved early on that she had a gentle and loving soul. At age sixteen, she was admitted into the New England Baptist Hospital Nursing School. She graduated several years later and took a position as a Registered Nurse in South Boston. There, she met the handsome naval officer Wayne Smith. In her typical honest and self-effacing fashion, she was shocked by his attention and couldn’t believe it when he asked for her hand in marriage. Millie supported Wayne in his naval career and they were very happy together. When a tragedy took her husband from her scarcely six years later, Millie only remembered the kindness of his family and how they helped her through the grief. Millie returned to work as a Registered Nurse as she raised her two children. Her genuine concern and care for others were her legacy in a career she loved.

When she retired from nursing, Millie continued to love and care for those around her, including her neighbors and friends. She is remembered for her honest concern for others, especially her family. She found great joy in her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They will never forget how blunt and loving she could be when admonishing them to take care of themselves.

Millie attended the temple weekly, for as long as she was able, in one of the many hallmarks of her faith. Her conversion to the Latter-Day Saint faith late in her life brought her a peace and security she never had, as well as a great joy to her daughter.

Millie is survived by her daughter, Jennifer. She is pre-deceased by her son, Michael, and her husband, Wayne.

Graveside services will be held on Friday, September 9, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. in the Alpine City Cemetery located at 350 North Grove Drive, Alpine, Utah. Friends and family may call Thursday evening from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Warenski Funeral Home 1776 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah.
