Born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Elder Joseph Fielding Smith and Ethel Reynolds Smith, Amelia Smith McConkie, passed away at age 89. Married Elder Bruce R. McConkie October 13, 1937 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Education in the Salt Lake school system, graduating from East High School, Class of 1933. Graduated from the University of Utah, June 1937. An unpretentious woman of quiet goodness, she was graced with a wonderful balance of wisdom and humor. A queen among women, was a marvelous mother and a constant source of support to her husband. Her life was spent in the service of others. Faithfully fulfilling her responsibilities throughout her life for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she was an officer in Primary, the Mutual Improvement Association and the Relief Society, serving as Relief Society president in the Kenwood, Kenwood II and Canyon Roads wards and Stake Relief Society president in the Wilford, University First and Salt Lake Eagle Gate stakes. Served as mission mother and advisor to the auxiliaries of the Southern Australian Mission where Elder McConkie was the mission president. Fulfilling a promise in her youth that she would bear testimony to the nations of the earth; doing so throughout the United States, in 47 foreign countries and at two temple dedications. Notwithstanding her world travels, the greatest influence was within the walls of her own home where she and Elder McConie planted and nurtured the seeds of the gospel in the hearts of their children. Capturing that spirit her children and grandchildren have fulfilled 37 fulltime missions. Taking tender care of her father, after the passing of her mother, Jesse Evans Smith, while he was the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
