Jill Smith (nee Kelly)
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Jill Smith
who passed away on Saturday September 14, 2019 at The Moncton
Hospital, surrounded by her family.
Jill will be dearly missed by her loving husband Gary and her
four children Kaileigh, Brandon, Morgan and Talia.
Born in Pointe Claire, Quebec, she was the youngest child of
the late Tim and Ivy Kelly as well as a loving daughter-in-law of the
late John and Margaret Smith.
Jill was the youngest of 7 children and will always be in the
hearts of Brian (Lynne), Steve, Jeff (Lila Donovan), Brad (Lucero),
Scott (Jamie Penfold) and Jan (Terry Koshylanyk).
She is also survived by her nieces and nephews: Kevin, Chris
(Victoria), Autumn (Peter), Alison (Mark), Erin (Spencer), Ian
(Holly), Tyler, Wesley, Stephen, Kieran (Emily), Ryan, Nick, Patrick,
Regan and Jessica.
Jill was a passionate soccer mom who could often be heard
singing Sweet Caroline on the sideline of many games. She and Gary
were avid fans of the Moncton Wildcats and the Moncton
She created many happy memories in her lifetime that will
live on in her children. We remember her as a wife, mother, sister,
aunt, great-aunt, niece, cousin and friend. Everyone who knew her will
miss her caring nature, quick whit and sense of humour.
The family would like to thank the medical and nursing teams
of the Sheldon Rubin Oncology Clinic and Extramural program for giving
Jill the gift of more time to spend with family and friends. Special
thanks goes to Anne-Marie and the wonderful staff at the Palliative
Care Unit at The Moncton Hospital who helped Jill enjoy her last
months doing as many of the things she wanted to do before she was
taken from us far too soon.
