Nancy Smith

July 10, 1935 – Oct. 7,2018

Nancy Smith died on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018 at South Peninsula Hospital.

She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones, her family wrote.

She was loved by so many. Many called her Grandma and she loved it. She was a women with a great spirit a contagious smile and a big heart.

She is survived by her granddaughter, Karen Shelby; grandson in-law, Corey Shelby; great-grandchildren, Sydney, Cutter, Sawyer and Sullivan; her son, Mark Smith; and grandson, Shane Spangler.

She came to Alaska with her husband Sonny Smith in 1972. She was a hard worker. She worked as a waitress in many places in her lifetime until they bought the Glacier Drive In in 1979. She worked it with her husband Sonny for 31 years. You could always go in and she would remember what you ate and how you liked it. She loved that place and hated to have to retire. She would always say she didn’t miss the hard work, but she missed the people.

She is now dancing up in heaven with Sonny. Let me tell you those two could dance.

There will be a celebration of life at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, at the Homer Elks Lodge. You can send your condolences to her family at P.O. Box 1055 Homer, Ak 99603.
