Deb Smith

October 13th
Our daughter, sister, aunt and friend Deb Smith has passed. Deborah Kay Smith was born October 12, 1961 to Willard B. and Linda K. Smith in Huntington IN. She attended elementary and junior high schools there until the family’s relocation to Tippecanoe Lake. She then attended and graduated with honors from Wawasee High School. She worked proudly for her pharmacy degree from Purdue University in 1985. From 1987 until her retirement in 2017 she cared for her clients at Walgreens in Colorado and Wyoming. A dedicated sports fan, she backed the Bears, Cubs and her Rockies. While appreciating her “Indiana Home”, her real home was Fort Collins CO amongst the Rockies. She made the best of both states (WV) too. A committed friend and communicator, she maintained contact with many folks, family, school and work. Well traveled, she was fearless and went everywhere, often alone. She didn’t want to
miss a thing. She is sadly missed by mom Linda Smith, sister Sherri (Ben) Keller, brother Rob (Dawn Engleberth) Smith, niece Riley (Talon) Stump, and nephew JD (Cassandra King) Keller and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her dad, Bill Smith Sechrist Lake, and grandparents Mildred Leonard and Robert and Ruth Smith, all of Huntington.  A brief Memorial service will begin at 2 PM on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the Owls Nest on North Webster.  Refreshments will be provided along with a cash bar.  Classic rock band the Strays will provide entertainment from 3-5.  Memorial contributions may be made to New Hope Pet Rescue.
