Obituary for Jeanne C. Smith

Jeanne C. Smith, 90, formerly of West Reading and Wyomissing, passed away on Friday, April 16, 2021 in the care of Phoebe Berks where she resided. She was the widow of George W. Smith, who passed away in 2001.

Born in Philadelphia to the late Ralph and Ellen (Foley) Cilley, Jeanne graduated from Ursinus College in 1952. Once she and George moved to the Reading area, Jeanne began teaching Health and Physical Education at the West Reading School District. She retired in 1965.

Jeanne was a longtime and much beloved member of West Lawn United Methodist Church. She volunteered actively throughout her life for many different organizations. These included serving on the Easton Area PTA, helping her church's choir, and working at the Reading Hospital Blood Donor center. She worked for years volunteering at Cumru and Mifflin Park Elementary schools where all of the students she worked with knew her only as "Grammy."

She is survived by her son, Daniel G. Smith, husband of Karen S. Smith, of Reading and her grandson Quentin, her step son David R. Smith, husband of Debbie Smith of Reading and her grandchildren, Michael, Jamie, Heather, and seven great grandchildren, J. Henry, Koa, Wesley, Anna, Catalina, Lucy, and Hazel.

Jeanne was not only a friend, she was my mentor and inspiration. I will have many fond memories of her being my partner in the church bell choir. Also we enjoyed golfing together with the Monday Scramblers and with the ladies golf league at Willow Hollow. We both enjoyed sports but there was no question about it, Jeanne was a much better athlete than I will ever be. I am grateful for her influence on me moving to Phoebe. Since then we had more contact with each other and frequent conversations. Jeanne lived her life to the fullest and cared greatly about her family and would put others first. I will miss her but am grateful for her influence on
my life and for her wonderful friendship.

Jeanne was a wonderful friend that was always enthusiastic in all she did and loved her smile. Dave, our daughter Kristen and I played bells with her at West Lawn UM. Kristen and Jeanne were side by side buddies.
Our prayers for your entire family during this difficult time.
