September 12, 1931 - February 14, 2018
Leah Margene Robinson Smith completed her earthly journey and joined her eternal companion on February 14, 2018. She was born September 12, 1931 to Margaret Buchanan and Marion Elliott Robinson. She had a difficult life, losing her mom as a little girl. She was moved from foster home to foster home. She was widowed at the age of 38 with 10 children to finish raising alone. Leah was dedicated to her family, and taught her children to love their Heavenly Father and the gospel of Jesus Christ. She was a hard worker and took great pride in her yard. From early spring to late fall she was up at the crack of dawn and outside tending to her flower gardens and lawn. Even with failing health this past year, she could still be found working in her yard every day. It was important to Leah that her children knew how to work hard, and knew the value of a job well done. She loved sports, especially her BYU Cougars. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many callings. Leah married the love of her life, Reed Emery Smith on June 3, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple. They had 10 children, 42 grandchildren, 106 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, her daughter Jennifer, a grandson Matthew, and a great-granddaughter Mariah, as well as her parents and all of her siblings except for her sister, Delores (Kenneth) Andrews, who was her best friend and protector all through her life. She is survived by her children, Margean (Bill) Hammar, Gary Reed (Laura) Smith, Carolyn (Alan) Linford, Paul Robinson (Kathy) Smith, Rebecca Smith, Michael Emery (Carrie) Smith, Kristine (Larry) DeMik, Leah Kathleen (Glen) Berlin, Allison (Jay) Linford, and Jennifer’s husband Don Hulet.
