Obituary

Emma Amelia Hirschi Smith, age 87, passed away peacefully at her home
surrounded by family on May 20, 2020, in Cedar City, Utah, from the effects of
several stokes. She was born on February 15, 1933, the fourth of seven
children of Emma Fern Hirschi and Joseph Dewey Hirschi in Hurricane, Utah,
and grew up on the family farm in Rockville, Utah.
Emma graduated from Hurricane High School, then moved to Cedar City,
Utah to attend college. Feeling out of place, she only attended one or two
days. She always regretted that decision, and later worked to give her children
the educational opportunities that they might desire. While living in Cedar
City she met John Whitney Smith at the diner where she was employed. They
were married December 29, 1951 in Rockville, Utah. Their marriage was
solemnized in the St. George Temple on June 24, 1994. Together they raised
their family in Cedar City where she was a longtime employee of the Coleman
Company. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saints where she served in many callings. She was a noted gardener who
shared freely with friends and neighbors. She was an avid hiker who walked
three to four miles daily, meeting many people who became her good friends.
Emma loved the outdoors. She loved to travel with her family and friends. She
enjoyed visiting historical sites. She was proud of her heritage and served as a
docent for the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum.
Emma was very familiar with the legacy of being a downwinder (those who
were exposed to radiation from nuclear testing in the Nevada Desert). She
lost Loyde, her first born child, to cancer in1955 at the age of two. She herself
would fight cancer in her early 70s and come out victorious.
Emma had a great love of family and enjoyed being surrounded by her
grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Emma was preceded in death by her husband John, her son Loyde, daughters-
in-law Jennie and Debbie, brothers Tren and Birrell. She was survived by her
children: Wallace (Jennie, Debbie) Smith, Frances (David) Lykins, and Linda
Smith (Said Abuhudra); 15 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. She
also will be greatly missed by many other relatives and friends.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday May 30, 2020 at 11:00 am at the
Cedar City Cemetery under the direction of Affordable Funeral Services.
We would like to publicly thank IHC Hospice, especially Bob and Becky for
their tender care of our mother Emma.
