Carnie Smith, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away on September 28, 2023. Born in Philadelphia, PA Carnie spent her childhood exploring the city and attending Philadelphia Public Schools. She had a keen interest in the world around her and went on to pursue a major in journalism at West Chester State College.
After college she married, had three daughters, and worked at Food Fair Corporation for many years.
In the mid-seventies, Carnie relocated to Denver, Colorado, where she found employment at Title Data as a Data Entry Supervisor. Her exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail made her a highly valued member of the team. But Carnie’s professional success was just one aspect of her life; she was also deeply connected to her community.
In 1978, Carnie joined Regina’s social and civic club, a decision that would shape her life in immeasurable ways. As an active member, she dedicated herself to various charitable endeavors and events, always with a warm smile and a helping hand. Her commitment to service did not go unnoticed, and her husband, Colonel Gilbert E. Smith, was made an honorary member of the club in recognition of his unwavering support.
Together with her beloved husband, Carnie embarked on countless adventures around the world, creating cherished memories that would last a lifetime. They were passionate about entertaining and welcomed friends and family into their home with open arms. But there was nothing Carnie loved more than being in the mountains or setting sail on a cruise, embracing the beauty of nature and the joy of discovery.
Carnie’s passing leaves a deep void in the hearts of those who loved her. She is survived by her three daughters. Her son-in-law, a blended family of grandsons, granddaughters, a great grandson, great granddaughters, and a multitude of extended family and friends will mourn her loss and forever cherish the love and laughter she brought into their lives.
Carnie Smith will be dearly missed but never forgotten, as her legacy lives on through the countless lives she touched and the indelible mark she left on this world.
