Obituary of Mary M. Smith
Mary M. Smith
Rochester: Passed away peacefully on November 12, 2020. She is deeply missed by her loving husband of 73 years, Gregory A. Smith; their four children: Marsha Smith, Eileen (Malur) Balaji, Ben (Alyson Austin) Smith, Mary M. (William) Stubler; nine grandchildren: Nick Balaji, Mimi (Dan) Yonkin, Natalie Balaji, Amelia (Brad) Parker, Pete Balaji, Bill Stubler, Julie (Mike) Pacini, Teresa (Dan) Conway, Carley Smith; and nine great-grandchildren.
Peggy was born December 8, 1924 in Jamestown NY and the family moved to Rochester in 1959. She was justly proud of her many years as an RN, a Red Cross volunteer for 30 years, a faith-filled member of her parish, great reader, loved conversation, and enjoyed baking and planning picnics for her grandchildren. She and Greg cherished their trip to Ireland, travels in the US, and were active bicyclists and walkers, donning snow shoes in the winter.
All services are private, for family members only. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to Fairport Baptist Home, 4646 Fairport Nine Mile Pt. Road, Fairport NY in Peggy’s honor and in gratitude for her care.
