Teresa Jane Dowhaniuk Darling Smith, 59, of Springville, Utah passed away peacefully on March 14, 2014 following a battle with cervical cancer. She was born on October 13, 1954 to Anton and Holla (Holly) Jane Taylor Dowhaniuk in Provo, Utah. Teresa spent her childhood life growing up in Springville, Utah and graduated from Springville High School. Two years later on June 27, 1975, she had a daughter, Tricia Ann Dowhaniuk. Tricia later passed away at the age of 18 months from a liver disease. Soon after that, Teresa was married on October 15, 1976 to the love of her life, Richard (Dick) Darling. They had two sons, Jeremy and Travis and lived in Orem, Utah for approximately 11 years until Dick passed away from a heart attack on June 8, 1987. Teresa and the two boys moved to Hideaway Valley, Utah for approximately 20 years. After that, she moved back to Springville, Utah to help care for her mother, Holla Jane. Due to declining health, Teresa spent the last five years of her life at Parkway Health Center in Payson, Utah and Canterbury Assisted Living in Springville, Utah.
