     Kate Smith, age 27, a resident of Pennville, passed away on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at her home.

     She will always be the rarest and the most hardcore soul I’ve ever had the great honor to have in my life…she touched the hearts of all the lives she entered.  She was a healer…she made us all laugh…had the most amazing smile… a beautiful voice and the most beautifully awkward personality that we adored so much.  She was an amazing wife and she will always be loved and cherished.  She will remain in our hearts forever.  We love and miss you Kate, you will be imprinted in all our hearts forever.  Till our souls meet again.  We love you, Kate.
