Margaret T. Smiley was born March 31, 1932 in Newark, N.J., to Leonard and Mary Harmon. She passed away peacefully at home on October 30, 2010. Margaret married the love of her life, LaVaughn A. Smiley, on July 14, 1956. Margaret and LaVaughn made their home in Orlando, Florida, and were inseparable for 49 years prior to Vaughn's passing in 2006. She was closely involved in raising her two sons, Stephen and Michael, whom she loved dearly. She recently moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to be closer to her beloved son, Stephen, and his wife, Paige. Margaret loved nothing better than spending time with her son, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her granddaughter, Tishca, was her closest friend and confident, as they shared a long and loving relationship which she cherished deeply. Spending many days and nights playing with her great-grandchildren, Palmer and Tristin, were also some of her happiest moments. Although she lived in Florida, and they lived in the northeast, Margaret stayed close to her four sisters, two brothers and their families, whom she loved dearly. The ultimate mom, grandma, great-grandma and friend, Margaret will continue to be beloved by all as she departs this world to a better place in heaven. She is preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Mary Harmon; husband, LaVaughn A. Smiley; son, Michael L. Smiley; sisters, Joan Domalewski and Mary Alice Nespinski. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Paige Smiley of Oklahoma City, OK; grandchildren: Presley and Cooper Miller; Tishca Peterson and her husband, Douglas, of Orlando, FL; Stephanie Perkovich and her husband, James, of Seguin, TX; great-grandchildren: Palmer and Tristin Peterson; Shelby and Ronnie Perkovich; sisters: Elaine Schweighardt and her husband, Marty; Ann Ventura and her husband, James; brothers: William Harmon and his wife, Sue; Larry Harmon and his wife, Geri; brothers-in-law, Robert Domaleski and Edward Nespinski; nieces, nephews and friends which are too numerous to mention. A come and go memorial service will be held from 5:00p.m to 7:00p.m., Monday, November 22, 2010, at Resthaven Funeral Home. To share condolences, please visit
