Obituary of Lisa Smith

West Seneca - Lisa Joy Smith, age 56, of West Seneca, went home to heaven on Thursday, October 12, 2017.

Lisa was born January 17, 1961 in Warren, Arkansas, a daughter of Carolyn H. Underhill Smith of Batavia and the late Jay D. Smith.

While we are deeply saddened at her passing we hold tight to the knowledge that she is now fully at peace. Words cannot express how much we will miss her beautiful soul, her ever-happy smile and of course infectious laugh. We are comforted knowing that she is now smiling and laughing with both her Heavenly Father and her loving Daddy who will receive her with open arms as they talk and walk together for the first time down the golden streets of Glory. Lisa Joy taught our family the beauty of unceasing joy and strength as she continued to smile even through all that she has endured, especially the past several months. She may have never spoken a word to us, but she has taught us all more than anyone ever could. Her joy, fighting spirit, resilience and most importantly her love will live on forever in the hearts of our family.

Surviving along with her mother are her sisters, Jaylene Smith-Kilner and Mona (Steve) Doyon, both of Batavia; nieces and nephews, Jeslene (Jordan) Beach of Pavilion, Shaylene Kilner of Batavia, Todd (Charisse) Logsdon of Indian Falls, Dallas (Erica) Logsdon of Batavia and Alexis Logsdon of Batavia; great-nieces, Emma Kilner and Kaylee Beach, both of Pavilion and her extended family and caregivers at Bernadette Terrace.

Friends may call on Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the H.E. Turner & Co. Funeral Home, 403 East Main Street, Batavia. Her Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 12:00 p.m. at St. Joseph's Church, 303 East Main Street, Batavia.  She will be laid to rest in Maple Lawn Cemetery, Elba. Memorials may be made to The Hospice Foundation of Western New York, P.O. Box 590, Buffalo, New York 14240-0590.
