Smiley, Josie

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend Josie Smiley.
Josie passed away at the Fort Macleod Care Facility on Thursday, Aug. 13, 2009, at the age of 70 years.
Josie is survived by her loving husband Ernie; daughters Sheila, Kim (Darrell), Anita (Alex), and Nadine; her son Dean (Elizabeth); and her grandchildren Maxim, Tahlia, Mackayala, Morgan and Damian. She also leaves behind a sister, Agnes, and three brothers, Harry, Tom, Ralph. Josie was predeceased by her son Bob; parents Joe and Maggie Feser; four brothers, Hubert, Leo, Edward and Allen; and four sisters, Florence, Delores, Catherine and Beatrice.
Josie’s family and friends were a very important part of her life. She had a special devotion to her faith.
Her hobbies and interests were numerous. She was involved with the Royal Purple Auxiliary for over 35 years. She spent endless days fishing, camping, and cultivating her rose gardens. Cooking and entertaining for family and friends was for her a complete joy and everyone would know and hear about her lifetime interest with collectables and antiques. Prayers were held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2009, at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Fort Macleod.
A funeral mass was celebrated the following day, Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 2 p.m. at the church with Rev. Benedicto Marino, celebrant.
