Obituary, Pasadena Star-News, 13 Jan 2005:

Helen Phillips Smith, passed away peacefully on December 29, 2004 at the age of 85. Beloved wife of the late Loran F. Smith, she is survived by her three sons Stephen, Craig, and Bryan, Stephen's wife Denise, grandsons Daniel and Bradley, and sister Rosemary Stephens. From 1964 through 1999, she was employed as Office Manager for Altadena Elementary School. Helen resided in Sierra Madre for over 65 years. She had an insatiable curiosity about life that belied her age, a sharp sense of humor that remained with her through her last days, a love of people without a modicum of regard for economic, cultural, or sexual orientation, and a passion for natural beauty. She was proudly progressive, became active in local issues that were of concern to her, and was recently involved in opposing the construction of Maranatha High School which, she was convinced, would have devastated the small town ambiance that she treasured for more than half a century. Helen was deeply loved by family and friends who are invited to remember her at a memorial celebration on Sunday, January 16, 1 PM at the Sierra Madre Women's Club, 550 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. Private internment will be at the Pioneer Cemetery in Sierra Madre. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Residents for the Preservation of Sierra Madre, P.O. Box 753, Sierra Madre, CA 91024.
