Betty Jane Smith
March 17, 1922 - August 08, 2012
Betty Jane Smith, 90, of Logansport, passed away at 3:34 p.m. Wednesday, August 8, 2012, in Logansport Memorial Hospital.
Born March 17, 1922, in Logansport, she was the daughter of Charles and Nancy Myrtle Bunnell Raisor. She was married July 11, 1942, in Peru, Indiana, to Lowell Jay Smith in Peru, Indiana.
Betty was retired from RBM, where she had worked for several years.
Betty was a member of the Cross~Wind United Methodist Church. Betty was happiest with a cat on her lap, a flower in her hair and a smile on her face. She loved to dance, sing in the church choir, was a talented musician and would gather the children of the family around the piano at Christmas for caroling. Playing a mean "boogie-woogie" was her specialty. She took pride in caring for her home, enjoyed gardening and grew the most beautiful flowers. She drove spotlessly clean cars, had a tasteful sense of style and fashion, was a good cook and made the best Christmas dinner in town. She loved "Days of Our Lives," the sun, sand and water of places in Indiana and Florida, and offered help to family, friends and neighbors in need. She truly loved her husband, who was on her mind a great deal in her last few days. She was loved by many and will be missed.
She is survived by one son, Tom "T.J." Smith and his wife Ann, of Logansport, IN; one daughter, Linda L Smith of Colorado Springs, CO; three grandchildren,
Scott, Kim and Joe; and one great-grandchild, Trever; several nieces and nephews; and her loving family of caregivers and neighbors at Miller's Merry Manor.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Frank and Morris Raisor; and two sisters, Eva Foster and Edith Neher Fiedler.
Services will be held at Fisher Funeral Chapel, Tuesday, August 14, 2012, at 11 a.m. with Dr. George Plasterer officiating.
Friends may call one hour prior to the service at the Fisher Funeral Chapel, Logansport, Indiana.
Interment will follow in the Spring Creek Cemetery, Logansport, Indiana.
Contributions may be made to the Cross~Wind United Methodist Church, Cause for Paws or the Emmaus Center. Envelopes will be available at the funeral chapel.
