Obituary for Della Louise Smith

Longtime Alaskan and Sterling resident, Della Louise Smith, 96, passed away Monday, Feb. 19, 2018 at home in Sterling.
Memorial services will be 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at Abundant Life Assembly of God Church in Sterling. Pastor Steve Harshman will officiate.
Della was born Feb. 10, 1922 in Vera Texas. She moved to Alaska in 1966 and lived in Anchorage until 1969. She moved out of state and returned to Soldotna in 1977 living here until 1997. She had returned to be with her family until her passing.
She was a member of the Church of God in Illinois, Texas, California, Alaska, Washington and Okinawa.
Her family writes, “Mom was a quintessential stay at home mother. It seemed like her household chores were endless, laundry, cooking, cleaning house, but somehow, she still found time to read her bible and crochet. Her journey and chores are now complete. To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.”
Della was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Lee Smith, daughter, Jurine Ann (Smith) Savage, her parents, and nine siblings.
She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Leon and Lois Smith of Sterling, Alaska, and Louis and Diana Smith of Mansfield, Texas; 15 grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; and 17 great-great grandchildren.
Rather than flowers, the family prefers memorial donation be sent to Abundant Life Church, P.O. Box 781, Sterling, AK 99672 for future disbursal.
Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
