Obituary of Maysie "Marie" Smith
Smith, Maysie “Marie” - peacefully passed away on Sunday August 6, 2023, at the Passamaquoddy Lodge in the presence of family and friends.
Marie was born in Raleigh, NL, to the late Charles Beaufield and Margaret (Taylor) Beaufield. She met the love of her life, Scott Smith, from “up around shore” and they were married in 1972.
Together, Scott and Marie raised their family in St. Anthony, NL. While their children were young, Marie worked, part time, in the kitchen at the St. Anthony Interfaith Home for Seniors. After retirement, they bought a house in St. Andrews, NB, and divided their time between NL and NB, allowing them to spend time with their girls. Marie loved music and had a special talent for remembering the lyrics to all the hymns. She was known for her infectious laugh, striking beauty, and love of animals.
Marie is survived by her three daughters, Lee Smith-Powell (Frank) of St. Andrews, NB, Lynn Rumbolt (Shawn) of St. Anthony, NL, and Krista Armstrong (Mike Goodyear) of Calgary, AB; three granddaughters; Hannah Rumbolt, Emma Rumbolt, and Erika Powell, brother Guy Beaufield (Juanita), sisters Faye Sweeney (Ross), Elaine Langdon (Hedley), and Pamela Guy (Brian), and sisters-in-law Shirley Beaufield, Daisy Beaufield, and Gladys Pilgrim, father-in-law, John Shenk; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to her parents, Marie was predeceased by her husband, Scott Smith, in 2019, father and mother-in-law, John (Jack) and Anna (Dawe) Smith, biological mother-in-law, Dorothy (Johnson) Shenk, her siblings Raymond Beaufield. Muriel Gray (Peter), Pat Best (Bud), and Calmond Beaufield, and brother-in-law, Perry Johnson.
Thank you to Archdeacon John Matheson for the many prayers and words of comfort, and thank you to the staff of the Passamaquoddy Lodge for their care and compassion.
At Marie’s request, cremation will take place. There will be no service at this time. Her family will take her to her place of rest to be buried with her husband Scott in the Anglican Church Cemetery in Raleigh, NL, next summer.
