Dec. 27, 1928 — Dec. 5, 2007
Audrey "Jewell" (Earp) Smith died Dec. 5 in Tigard.
Jewell was born in Alexis, Ill. Her aunt and uncle Sorensen in Albany raised Jewell as their own with their five children. She graduated from Albany High School in 1947.
Jewell found the love of her life in Larry Smith, and they married in 1949 in Albany. They made their home in Southern California for 49 years, where they owned several dry cleaning businesses and raised their son and daughter. When Larry died in 1998, Jewell moved to Tigard to be with her daughter.
Jewell loved to help care for the llamas, goats, dogs and cats on Gayla's little farm. She loved life, greeting everyone with a smile and a hug. Jewell so loved her family and the Lord.
She will be missed by son Kevin Michael Smith of California; daughter Gayla Dawn Smith in Oregon; grandsons Matthew, Gavin, David and Brian; and half-siblings Mildred, Weldon and Wyatt of Illinois.
A celebration of Jewell's life was Friday at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 13401 N.W. Benish St., in Tigard.
In lieu of flowers, remembrance can be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
