Smith Josephine

Smith, Josephine Maude (Jo) nee Slatford

March 2, 1919 — July 29, 2017

Of Kelowna, BC, previously of Rosmere Quebec, passed away peacefully in her sleep, Saturday July 29, 2017. Jo was predeceased by her husband of 65 years Leslie Thomas Smith in 2008.  She is survived by her children; Joanne (Terry) Brooks, Nancy Conley, David (Sonya) and grandchildren Matthew and Marc Conley.  Jo was a wonderful mother, wife and friend, one whose heart was filled with love, joy and compassion.  She was a talented artist, avid reader and storyteller.  She will be remembered for her strong and enduring spirit, her absolute zest for life and for her true and constant curiosity of the world and all its wonders.  She is sadly missed in the most heartfelt way by all those that loved her.  A private family gathering will take place at a later date.
