Our mother, Marie Smith, 84, born August 16, 1923 in Salt Lake City, died unexpectedly on July 19, 2008 from a stroke.

Daughter of Lynwood L. and Afton Warburton Fish. She graduated from East High in 1941 and attended the University of Utah. Most known for her ownership of Glad Rags women's clothing stores which she started in 1963 and ran for 32 years. For the past 13 years, she worked as a real estate agent and coach. In her younger years, she studied ballet with William F. Christensen and performed at numerous locations, including Kingsbury Hall where she posed as one of the ballerinas in the large mural. Mom was very creative, intelligent, a perfectionist, honest and generous to a fault. An eternal optimist, always the entrepreneur, energetic and hard working, but she still made time for what was most important, her family and friends. An outstanding cook, loved good food, fun-loving with a great sense of humor. She loved people and always had a sparkle about her. She learned and mastered most everything she tried, always attending workshops, classes, seminars, etc. until her passing.

She is survived by her son Jeffery (Jill Tea) Smith and daughter Kathleen (Johnparley) Lewis, seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
